What is stopping your Happiness? Sri Sri reveals

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar Happiness Contentment

Sri Sri - Greed takes away the contentment. It is the, 'I want more, I want more', which makes you miserable, which makes you put so much effort! You should think that whatever is needed for me, I will get it. You should have that faith, that it will come to you.

Why do you get so disturbed? It is greed which disturbs you. So, not wanting too much of anything; balance!

Happiness and contentment comes, the only thing you have to ensure is
1. You are not lazy. If you are lazy and you say, 'Let happiness come to me', it is not going to come to you. Lazy people will not be happy
2. Don't be selfish. If you are selfish, happiness is not going to come to you. If you only say, 'Me, mine, only me', you are not going to be happy. Selfish people will not be happy
3. Don't be greedy. A greedy one will not be happy. If you are greedy and say, 'I want more and more and more', you will not be happy
4. People with the feeling of revenge will not be happy. If you want to take revenge on anybody, then you cannot be happy

What is the significance of the Varna (classification system of the society)?

Varna System in society Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Q: What is the significance of the Varna (classification system of the society)? When all the saints have asked us to go beyond the classifications then from where did it originate?


#SriSri: Varna is a classification system within the society. It is an order of classification for education and application of that education. There are different classes within a society. Now, you want to take a medical branch after passing school, you want to become an engineer, lawyer or doctor – the order of these occupations is Varna. It is not according to the birth, but according to the occupation. This happens irrespective of the fact whether you want it or not. In every country, there are groups according to the respective trades or occupations. And it will always be there. There is a different group for the businessmen, different for the intellectuals, different for the professors, different groups for the writers. Similarly there is a different group for the soldiers; there is a defense ministry, where only matters related to this are discussed. So, in this way there will be the division of society on the basis of the occupation. And it is rightly so; the classification of society on the basis of the occupation. Why? In this manner, there would be skill enhancement, specialization and progress. This is why lord Krishna has said – “catur-varnyam maya srstam, guna-karma-vibhagasah”. That is- the division is on the basis the Guna (Quality) and the Karma(Work). The lord has created this system. And it is present throughout the world; this is not just India;. So, just know that the Varna is not according to the birth, it is according to the occupation. This can change too. A soldier does not have to remain soldier through his life; he can anytime choose to become a professor too. A teacher can anytime choose to become a soldier or even a trader.

God as First, second and third person

God as First, second and third person- Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

The theologians address God as He but in prayer you use the 2nd person, and in theory you use 3rd person. In prayer 3rd person does not help. You have to come to 2nd person and in experience of truth you come to 1st person. Experience of God brings you to the 1st person…”I AM.”


He is one with no experience.
You is when praying you begin to be a disciple.
I AM is one who has perfected………??


In the west people are scared to use the 1st person. They are comfortable using only the 3rd person and occasionally the 2nd.
In many cultures (Islam) using even the 1st person is considered a blasphemy. Whereas in the east all the three persons are used and the goal of the 3rd and 2nd person is to reach the 1st.
1st person cannot become a concept but an experiential reality.
3rd person can be a concept. 2nd – a mystical and devotional experience and 1st person dawns as reality.


Prayer cannot happen without 2nd person and Samadhi is impossible without 1st person.

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
