Knowledge from Shri Shri Ravi Shankar

In faith you can transcend the laws of nature, but it needs to be pure
Expression of love is service, expression of joy is your smile, expression of peace is meditation, expressing God is conscious action.
Realize that you are more than time and that you can move through time with your timeless connection to the Divine.
Feel infinitely indebted for your body, for knowledge, for the things you have received, for your own life.Then you will bask in the abundance of the Creator.
When your mind is not complaining and is responsible, courageous, confident and hollow and empty,you are inexplicably beautiful.
Spiritual blossoming' simply means blossoming in life in all dimensions. Being happy, at ease with yourself and with everybody around you
You are free. You are the infinite space. The craving to be free is itself another bondage.
In the present moment, we are all innocent. Wake up!
Like there is fatherhood, motherhood, there is Guruhood also. You have to play Guruhood at least to somebody. You do play, you keep giving advices and guiding people consciously or unconsciously, and give them love and care. But do it 100 percent without expecting anything in return. That is living the Guruhood, living the Self.
Just an intention to be free makes you immediately free.
If you are passionate, be passionate for the highest, the most wonderful and the most beautiful. Be passionate for this entire creation - everything is so beautiful.
Knowledge prepares us to dive into devotion. Only Divine love brings fulfillment.
The knowledge that unites love and wisdom, that uplifts the spirit is spirituality.

Joy is expansion, becoming big in your heart. This can only happen in a situation where you are very much in love, but cannot posses what you love.

If you can win over your mind, you can win over the whole world.

Make your smile cheaper and your anger expensive.

For one who has awakened in knowledge, there is no more suffering. For him every inch of this creation is filled with bliss, is a part of the Self.

Give prime time to the Divine. You will be rewarded.

A devotee is not there even for wisdom. He is simply is in love. He has fallen in deep love with the Master, with the infinite, with God. He doesn’t care whether he gets enlightened or not.

Let go of all efforts, searches and desires, for He can be felt only in deep peace and stillness.

When you see this life as the Divine, problems disappear from your eyes.

God is there within you. He is sometimes sleeping and hiding, sometimes awake and dancing. After some sadhana, God is awake. Awaken the God and Goddess in you!

Walk on the mud, but don’t let the mud touch your feet. Walk like a moving cloud.

When someone is drowning in the ocean of attachments, surrender is the life jacket they can put on and wait for the rescue team.

Meditation is the delicate art of doing nothing.
Devotion is ultimate love, the pinnacle of love.
You have never been in love and at the same time been centered. Look into your Self. Then the love in you will blossom, you will become vast and wide.
Deep rest and dynamic activity are complementary. How can you be dynamically active if you have not given deep rest to your mind and body? Someone who has never slept cannot feel energetic at all.
You are not just your body. You are the life inside you, you are consciousness. You can embrace the sky. You can become the ocean.
Love is the appetizer, knowledge is the main course and seva is the exercise. Without love and seva, knowledge becomes indigestible.
Your non-attachment to the mundane is your charm, your attachment to the Divine is your beauty.
