Roadmaps to joy!

How to be free of lust

Q: I feel lustful at times. What to do and how to get rid of that?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: When there is no joy in life then lust increases in you because then you get joy in that only. But when you find joy in life otherwise also, then the frequency of such desires starts reducing.

When you start finding joy in sadhna (spiritual practices), joy in service, joy in satsang, joy in devotion, joy in surrender - that is the only way to come out of lust. No other way exists.

When all are done together slowly, you come out of lust. Otherwise, you will have to wait for age. May be then you will be out of it. You won't be capable physically to do it but you get rid of it from the mind or not, that is not sure.No guarantee is there. Usually very old people see all obscene stuff and try to get satisfaction from it.

How to be free of lust? Question answered by His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

If you are just beginning to meditate, restlessness comes up or you feel very sleepy…

Q: I am very restless or I am very sleepy. How do I get a better balance for meditation?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: Again these experiences are so common for a beginner. If you are just beginning to meditate, restlessness comes up or you feel very sleepy. When stresses get released from your system, such a passage may be common. Farry will tell you more on this. When it comes from a scientist mouth, it has more flavors to it. He is doing a lot of research in Oslo University on Sudarshan Kriya. They found how the chromosomes of your body change! He just told me some very exciting news. So when stress release happens, the chemical or structural form in which stress was stored gets released, you get all these experiences. Your endocrine system readjusts itself, because we have violated our body in so many ways so many times. We have not kept the balance; we have not honored our own body, so jerks may happen. How many of you have found some jerks?

Emotions may come up and you feel completely confused. All this may happen. It's not that it should happen. Sometimes it doesn't happen and you say am I not releasing any stress? That person is getting stress released and I am so quiet. Don't compare your experience with anybody whatsoever. We all are so different. Everybody's nervous system is so different. And at different times, different experiences come to different people.

So at any time we should never compare our experiences with others and feel sorry or happy about it.

What is Sudarshan Kriya?

The entire world is made up of rhythmic vibrations and from these vibrations ambrosia (Amrit) is produced. Through the rhythmic breathing of Sudarshan Kriya we become aware of the rhythm of the soul (Self). It is only through these vibrations that bliss can be awakened ~ Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

What is medical science doing today

What is medical science doing today? Every doctor is sick, and the sick are treating the sick and the whole world is a hospital. I’m telling you, this is true. I’m a medical doctor, I’m telling you this. The blind are leading the blind. Where will they go? They will go to perdition. All are experimenting, nothing is conclusive. That experiment which is accepted today, is discarded tomorrow. Nobody should say I am a scientist and my word is final. There is nothing like final so far. Therefore, we should continue making efforts to reduce suffering and make others comfortable. Somebody asked me why do all these hospitals exist? I said for the sake of hospitality! This is true. And even today we cannot extend our hospitality properly. One doctor goes to a patient with a great love and says, come on, cheer up, I will try my best to help you. And another doctor has no time, he gives pills and goes away. There will be a difference in the outcome between the two. Jar, one of the doctors, said that 50% of the diseases are cured by the way the doctor visits and treats the patient.

But I’m going one step further. I tell you that you are your own doctor. The day you understand it, then you will discover something great.

There are healing potentials within you. You will come in touch with them when you have stopped becoming negative. Negativity is a very dangerous thing, and most of you are negative.
