Suicide is the most foolish thing – Talk by Sri Sri Ravishankar

Article taken from : http://www.artofliving.org/suicide-most-foolish-thing

Sri Sri Ravishankar ji

Sri Sri Ravishankar ji

Q: Dear Guruji, I have had thoughts of suicide many times in my life. What happens if one commits suicide?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: Suicide is the most foolish thing a person can ever do.
It is like someone is shivering in the cold and goes out and removes all their clothes. What do you call them? Foolish!
You are already so cold. You are feeling cold in a heated auditorium and you go out into the open and say, ’I am cold, I am cold, I am cold’, and remove your jacket, your t-shirt, your inner garments and everything and throw them out.Will the cold become any less? No!
People who commit suicide find themselves there because they are so attached to life. They are so attached to some pleasure, so attached to some fun and joy that they want to kill themselves.
So when they kill themselves they find themselves in a bigger soup. ‘Oh my God, this restlessness, these desires which has created such intense agony inside me has not gone. My body has gone but the agony has remained.’
It is only through the body that you can dispel the agony and get rid of misery. Instead you destroy the very instrument by which you can get rid of agony. That is why this knowledge is so important.
If you do pranayama, Sudarshan Kriya and meditation, you will realize that you are not the body.
What is it that you are hankering for in life? Hankering for love? Attention? Money? Pleasure? What is it that you are hankering? These hankerings are boiling desires and they are creating this foolish idea inside you to commit suicide.
Dedicate your life for a social cause, for some higher cause. If you feel you want to commit suicide, I tell you, I need you; I need you to do my work so you better stay back.
When you think only about yourself, ‘What about me, what about me’, then this is what happens.
Depression comes in. Forget about yourself. Die for a cause but don’t kill yourself. It is worth dedicating your life for something higher.
I need you. You come here and do work, there is so much work to be done; help me out. Know that you are useful to me. If everyone else says you are useless, remember – no, I am here, born at this time because I have to be of some use and Guruji needs me, so I am not going to commit suicide. Got it?!
So, do my work. If you cannot do yoga, meditation, then sweat it out and do my work. I have lots of work I can give you. I can give some work to the entire nation and the entire population. I have plenty of work to be done. And whatever you need, a square meal, I will provide you. You need a roof above you, I will provide you. I guarantee you, but don’t kill yourself. The human body is so precious you know! After so many different lives and different bodies we get a human body, a human birth. After being a frog, a scorpion, a chicken, being a mouse somewhere in some hole, a cat jumping around here and there, a dog somewhere, a bird somewhere, a worm somewhere then you get a human life, after going through all those births. So, it is very precious.
Your hankering for pleasure is the cause of depression in you. Wake up and see all pleasures are momentary. How long will it stay? See they are so momentary, five to ten minutes you find some joy in them and then it is gone.
What is it that do you are hankering about? Some people appreciating you? My dear, it has no meaning. People appreciate you in front of you; behind you they may feel jealous about you. That is what happens. They praise you today, tomorrow they criticize you. So what? Do you see what I am saying? What are you hankering for? Appreciation from people? What is appreciation? It is just a few thoughts that are passing through their mind, and you think they are going to do it forever? They have limitations. So what?
Some people have good comments and some people have bad comments, so what. They criticize you, so what? Those who criticize you are also going to die, and you the one being criticized will also die one day, all will be finished! So why are we so much bothered about somebody’s appreciation, or criticism? Why can’t we just be our self? You know, it takes such a big load off our head not being bothered by anybody’s criticism or anybody’s adulations. We can just be ourselves, natural.
If you live so lightly where is the question of depression? Do you see what I am saying? So those who get these thoughts of committing suicide, it is just your prana which is low, so do more pranayama and dedicate your life to a higher cause.
There are millions of people who are suffering more than you, look at them. When your suffering becomes smaller you will never think that you want to commit suicide, number one.
Second, know that you are needed, you are useful. You have to do something in the world. Know that. Third is, forget about what people think about you. People commit suicide because they think they have lost their prestige, their status. What status? What prestige? Who has time? Everybody is entangled with their own problems, with their own mind. They can’t step out of their own mind, where do they have the time to think about you? These types of tendencies come because you think others are going to disrespect you. Many people do this. I tell you it is worthless; what the society thinks of you is useless.
Mainly we must realize that suicide is the worst thing. That is one of the major reasons that we should conduct Art of Living programs as much as possible. Do you see what I’m saying? When you start the breathing exercises and a couple of bhastrika, it all goes away!

http://www.artofliving.org/three-kinds-love

Three kinds of Love

There are three kinds of Love. The Love that comes out of Charm, that which comes out of comfort, and the Divine Love. Do you see what I am saying? The love that comes out of charm does not last long. It comes out of unfamiliarity or out of attraction. In this, you lose the attraction fast, and boredom sets in, like most love marriages. This love may diminish and bring along with it fear, uncertainty, insecurity, and sadness. The Love that comes out of comfort and familiarity grows. But this Love has no thrill, no enthusiasm, joy, or fire to it. For example, you are more comfortable with an old friend who is a familiar person, rather than with a new person. The Divine Love supersedes both the above. The Divine Love has ever newness. The closer you go; there is more charm and depth. The Divine Love has comfort, enthusiasm, and familiarity. There is never boredom and it keeps everyone on their toes. Worldly love can be like an ocean, yet an ocean has a bottom. The Divine Love is like the sky which is limitless, infinite. From the bottom of the Ocean, soar into the vast sky. To know more about Divine Love, refer to our Bhakti Sutras.

http://www.artofliving.org/what-are-signs-love

What are the signs of love

When you love someone you dont see anything wrong in them. Even if you see some fault in them you justify the fault and say Well everyone does it, it is normal. You think you have not done enough for them. The more you do, the more you want to do for them. They are always in your mind. Ordinary things become extraordinary. For eg. A baby winking at grandmother. You want them to be yours exclusively. When you love someone, you want to see them always happy and you want them to have the best . You get hurt even over small things. 33% extra knowledge !!! (Laughter)

Sri Sri: You wish someone of what they dont have ? Right ?

Answer: Yes !

Sri Sri: When you say Best Wishes, you imply that they are not best NOW I tell you, NOW is the best. If you realise this tomorrow can only be better.

http://www.artofliving.org/your-expressions-love

Your expressions of love

You feel a lot of love for someone and they do not take it. What do you do?

  • Get frustrated
  • Turn the love into hatred and wish for revenge
  • Again and again remind them how much you love them and how little they love you
  • Become fussy and cranky
  • Throw tantrums
  • Feel humiliated and try to protect your respect
  • Resolve never to love again
  • Feel hurt and mistreated
  • Try to be aloof and indifferent

…and you have seen that none of these work. They only make the situation worse.

What is the way out of this? How do you maintain your lovingness?

  • Have patience and change your expression of love.
  • Be centered and limit your expression of love. Sometimes over-expression of love puts people off.
  • Take it for granted that they love you too and accept their style of expression. For example, a mother with three kids. One child talks, one child does not talk, one child throws tantrums. Mother’s love is the same irrespective of their behavior.
  • Genuinely acknowledge their love for you. This will turn your demand into gratefulness and the more you are grateful in life, the more love comes your way.
  • Know that hurt is part of love and take responsibility for it. When you move away from your center, you will definitely get hurt and the nature of worldliness is misery.

http://www.artofliving.org/love-shadow-self

Love Is The Shadow Of The Self

When you love something, you have a sense of belongingness with it. You can only love something, because it is belongs to you. If it is not yours, you cannot love it. Love is the shadow of the Self. The bigger the Self, the bigger the shadow, and the bigger the love. When the love is cast over the entire creation, then you are the Big Self. That is the Lordship. When the Lordship dawns on the Self, there is perennial celebration.

http://www.artofliving.org/love-your-very-existence-0

Love is your very existence

Suppose someone shows a lot of love to you, what do you do?

  • Often you do not know how to respond.
  • You feel obliged and bound.
  • Shrink or shy away.
  • Feel foolish and awkward.
  • Try to reciprocate even though it is not genuine.
  • Doubt the love expressed and ones own worthiness.
  • You are afraid of losing respect because love does not allow distance and respect tends to keep distance.
  • Your ego hardens and does not allow you to receive and reciprocate.
  • Anything else. (Fill in the blanks).

The ability to receive genuine love comes with the ability to give love. The more you are centered and, by experience, know that you are love, the more you feel at home with any amount of love being expressed in any manner, for deep inside, you know :

Love is not an emotion !! It is your very Existence !!!


http://www.artofliving.org/abiding-self

Abiding in the self

Abiding in the self you become the valentine for the whole world. Spirit is the valentine of matter and matter is the valentine of the spirit. They are made for each other. They uphold each other. If you hold onto matter and do not respect the spirit, then matter is not pleased. If you honor the spirit then you will care for the world, and when you care for the world, it will take care of you.

I am the valentine of the whole world and I reside in every heart. If you are my valentine, you will see me everywhere. Have the same love for everyone, with different flavors. You cannot behave the same way with everyone, but you can love all of them the same. Love transcends behavior and etiquette.

http://www.artofliving.org/whom-are-you-ease-0

With Whom Are You At Ease?

With whom do you feel really comfortable and at ease?

You feel comfortable with someone who does not question your love, someone who takes for granted that you love them. Isn’t it?

If someone doubts your love and you constantly have to prove it, this becomes a heavy load on your head. When someone doubts your love, they start questioning you and demanding explanations for all your actions. To explain everything you do is a burden. Your nature is to shed the burden, and so you don’t feel comfortable.

When you question the reason behind an action, you are asking for justice for yourself. You are creating a distance when you ask for justice. Your whole intention is to come close, but you are creating a distance.

You are a witness to all your actions. You are as much a stranger to your own actions as you are to someone else’s. You are the Eternal Witness. When someone asks for an explanation, they are speaking from doership and imposing that doership on you. This brings discomfort.

If somebody is just there with you, like a part of you, they don’t question you. They are like your arm. There is thorough understanding and questions don’t arise. Neither demand an explanation nor give an explanation.

http://www.artofliving.org/authority-and-love

Authority and love

Mistakes keep happening all the time. Often you get irritated by them and want to correct them. How much can you correct? There are two situations when you correct others’ mistakes: 1. You correct someone’s mistake because it bothers you. But even if you correct it, this does not work. 2. You correct someone’s mistake, not because it bothers you, but for their sake so that they can grow. To correct mistakes you need authority and love. Authority and love seem to be contradictory, but in reality they are not. Authority without love is stifling and does not work. Love without authority is shallow. A friend needs to have both authority and love but they need to be in the right combination. This can happen if you are totally dispassionate and centred. When you allow room for mistakes, you can be both authoritative and sweet. That is how the Divine is, the right balance of both. Krishna and Jesus had both. People, when they are in love, exercise authority with each other. Authority and love exist in all relationships. Abhay says, “The husband just loves and the wife has authority.” Mikey asks, “Is that a mistake?” Guruji says, “I don’t want to correct it!” (laughter)

http://www.artofliving.org/change-and-love

Change and Love

There are some who are longing for change. Feeling that everything is stagnant in their lives, they want to change partners, careers, dwellings. And there are some who are scared of change. They feel secure the way they are. There are some who see the change, but don’t acknowledge it out of fear. There are some who do not notice the change at all. There are some who do not think there is anything to change. And there are some who realize that everything is changing, yet see there is something that is non-changing. Those who recognize the non-changing amidst the change are the wisest of all.

Question: Must love as well always change?

Sri Sri: Love is your nature. What is your nature cannot change. But the expression of love changes. Because love is your nature, you cannot but love. The mother has total love for the child, but sometimes she feeds the child, sometimes she is strict with the child. “Come on, sit and write!”
Sometimes she slaps the child. She does this out of love, and these are all different modes of love. So, the expression of love changes but love itself does not change, because love is your nature.

http://www.artofliving.org/love-and-renunciation

Love and Renunciation

Only one who has renounced can truly love. To the degree you have renounced, to that degree you have the ability to love. Often people think those who renounce cannot love, and those who love cannot renounce. This is because so-called renunciants do not seem to be in love, and so-called lovers are very possessive and are in need. True love is non-possessive and brings freedom, and renunciation is nothing but freedom. Only in freedom can love fully blossom. When in love you say, “I want nothing, I just want this.” Renunciation is, ” I don’t want anything. I am free.” In love there is no other need. Renunciation is having no need. Love and renunciation, although appearing to be opposites, are two sides of the same coin.

McQueen said — They are the same side of the same coin. (laughter)

Tara asked — Does this mean the lover renounces his beloved?

Guruji responded — You renounce the attachment, the possessiveness. Renunciation doesn’t diminish love; it enhances it.

Only renunciation can sustain love and joy. Without renunciation love turns into misery, possessiveness, jealousy and anger. Renunciation brings contentment and contentment sustains love. Without renunciation one gets discontented, frustrated, sad, fearful, suspicious, analytical. And the whole soap opera begins. And this is what we find in society , don’t we?

The so-called renunciants have run away from life frustrated and disappointed. Real renunciation is born out of knowledge and wisdom, knowledge of life in the background of time and space and in the context of this magnanimous universe.

http://www.artofliving.org/five-insights

The five insights

Love is your nature. But in the process of its expression, you often get caught up in the object. This is when your sight is caught outside. To return back to your nature, you need insight. Pain is the first insight. It takes you away from the object and turns you towards your body and mind. Energy is the second insight. A bolt of energy brings you back to your Self. Divine Love is the third insight. A glimpse of Divine love makes you so complete and over rules all the relative pleasures. Trance is the fourth insight. An elevation of consciousness and partial awareness of the physical reality around is Trance. The conviction in the non-dual existence, that all is made up of one and only one, is the fifth insight. When love glows, it is bliss, When it flows, it is compassion, When it blows, it is anger, When it ferments, it is jealously, When it is all Nos, it is hatred, When it acts, it is perfection, When love Knows, it is ME!

The personal and impersonal

How can we reconcile the impersonal with the personal?

In love you raise the object to life. When you love an object it becomes life. For children everything is personal. Children take each object they play with and make it totally personal. Even a stone has a face; even the sun laughs. When you attach emotion, the whole creation becomes personal. When you remove the emotion, even people become objects. Violence is removing the emotion. How a person can kill another person: it is when they do not see them as a person, they see them as an object. But even a stone attracts reverence when it becomes personal.

Dean says: In military training they teach soldiers to see people as killing objects coming toward you that need to be killed first.

Susannah says: In the temple even a stone is elevated to the level of spirit.

The impersonal cannot attract reverence. Most people see God as impersonal and therefore they do not progress.

Dean and Susannah say: “That’s why we need a Guru!”

Chan says: When we say something isn’t real, then it’s impersonal. When we personalize

something, we make it real. So then, what is reality?

You are the Reality. You are not the thoughts, you are not the emotions nor actions. You are not even a person…!

Exercise: What you now see as impersonal, see it as personal. And when you feel any negative emotion towards anybody, see them as impersonal. And pretend that you yourself are a robot.

http://www.artofliving.org/love-question-answer-0

Love! The Question Of An Answer

In a congregation, Sri Sri asked, ” How many of you are feeling strong?” Many people raised their hands.

Sri Sri : “Why?”

Because YOU are with us!!!

Sri Sri : “Only those who feel weak can surrender”.

All those who were feeling strong were taken aback!

If you are in love, you feel weak because love makes you weak. Yet there is no power stronger than love. Love is strength. (All those who had raised their hands for strong suddenly felt weak!). Yet love is the greatest power on earth. You feel absolutely powerful when you are with the Divine.

Someone asked: “But why do we keep alternating between the two?”

Sri Sri: “That is the fluctuation in life.”

http://www.artofliving.org/love-and-truth

Love and Truth

Why would someone tell a lie to their close ones or to their beloved?

This is a question most often asked by lovers. Since love cannot stand untruth, this causes relationships to break up. The solution lies in understanding the paradox of love and truth. People tell lies just to save and maintain their love. The fear that the truth might damage their love causes lies to be told between husband and wife, boyfriend and girlfriend, parents and children and in family situations.

In love you feel weak and truth brings strength. Yet why do people prefer love over truth, i.e. weakness over strength?! (laughter)

No one wants to sacrifice love. Thus people are ready to give up the truth for their love. Love takes the luster out of truth. Sometimes truth can make love bitter while in love even lies can appear sweet, like Krishna’s lies to his mother Yashoda! The truth that does not nourish love has no sense and the love that cannot withstand the truth is not true love. When one is assured that the love is so strong that the truth can neither break it nor cause bitterness, then the truth prevails and love shines. Truth has judgments, but true love is beyond judgments. Thus true love makes you weak and yet it is the greatest strength.

http://www.artofliving.org/respect-and-ego

Respect and Ego

There are two types of respect.

  1. Respect that comes to you because of your position, fame or wealth. This type of respect is impermanent. It can be lost once you lose your wealth or status.
  2. Respect that comes because of your virtues like honesty, kindness, commitment, patience and your smile. This respect, no one can take away.

The less you are attached to your virtues, the more self respect you have. If you get attached to your virtues, you look down upon everybody else, and the virtues start diminishing. Non- attachment to virtues brings the highest self respect.

Often one confuses ego with self esteem. Ego needs the other for comparison; self esteem is just confidence in oneself. For example, a gentleman claims that he is thorough in Mathematics or Geography, this is self esteem. But to say that I know better than you, that is Ego.

Ego simply means lack of respect to the Self.

Ego upsets you very often. Self esteem is immune to getting upset by external factors. In self respect, everything is a game, winning or losing has no meaning, every step is joy, and every move is celebration.

http://www.artofliving.org/love-1

Love

Do you love someone, because they are great or unique?I tell you – you are hopeless!

Why do you love someone? Is it because of their qualities or is it because of a sense of kinship or intimacy?

You can love someone for their qualities and not feel a sense of kinship. This type of love gives rise to competition and jealousy. Such is not the case when love arises out of kinship.

If you love someone for their qualities, then when the quality changes or you get used to the quality, love also changes. However, if you love someone out of kinship, because they belong to you, then that love remains for life-times.

People say “I love God, because He is great”. This is no big thing. If God is found to be ordinary, just one of us, then your love for God collapses! If you love God, because He is yours, then however God is, whether He creates or destroys, you still love Him. The love for kinship is like the love for yourself.

Question: Many people do not have love for themselves?

Answer: No! It is the other way around. They love themselves so much, that they want better qualities and better appearance for themselves. This love of qualities makes them be hard on one self.

If love is based on the quality of a person, then the love is not stable – after sometime the qualities change and the love becomes shaky. Loving someone because of their greatness or uniqueness is Third-rate love. Loving someone because they belong to you, great or otherwise, is unconditional love.

Knowledge, Sadhana, Seva and Satsang help to bring about a sense of belonging in no time. When love springs forth from a sense of belongingness then the actions and qualities do not over shadow the love. Neither the qualities nor actions can be perfect all the time. Love and a feeling of kinship alone can be perfect.

next 3 days is for Rajas
and last 3 days for Sattwa.
The last day is Vijayadashami – the day of Victory over the all the 3 Gunas.

->These few days are days of rest.
->Don’t bombard yourself with various sensory pleasures.
->Eat a bit less.
->Refrain from over eating, over listening, any activity that burdens your system – fast a little bit.
->Last day ofcourse there will be a feast.
->Fasting always goes with Feasting 🙂


This Navratri NOT to be MISSED 🙂
There will be
Blissful Homas,Chantings.
Rishiji Vidyadharji 🙂
Yummy Prasadams.
Cultural performances, Garba , Satsangs.
All in all, get ready to get
Bathed in Mantras,
Sing away in Satsangs
Dance in Garba
and Get content with the Prasadams 🙂


A Brief Idea to all those attending for the first time or otherwise.

1.Its nice, to dress traditionally on festive occasions 🙂

During the nine days of Navratri there is a custom of wearing different colour dress – Sarees (Sari) and Churidhar – mainly in Gujarat and Maharashtra. Information on what are the Navratri 2011 colours usually appears a couple of days before in local Gujarati and Marathi newspapers. This is the latest information regarding the nine colors of Navratri in 2011.

The nine Navratri colors for 2011 are:
Pratipada – September 28, 2011 (Wednesday) – Blue
Dwitiya/Tritiya – September 29 (Thursday) – Yellow
Chaturthi – September 30 (Friday) – Green
Panchami – October 1 (Saturday) – Grey
Sashti – October 2 (Sunday) – Orange
Saptami – October 3 (Monday) – White
Ashtami – October 4 (Tuesday) – Red
Navami – October 5 (Wednesday) – Purple
Vijayadasami – October 6 (Thursday) – Pink

2. When you enter the ground,there would be a stage right ahead and a small area will be specially hosting the Puja place with Kalash 🙂
the Puja place is a very pristine area and only Pandits are allowed to be in that area.Please dont move on to the Puja place area. You may worship from a distance.

3.Usually just ahead of the stage is the sitting arrangements of the people who are in Sankalpas 🙂
Make sure you dont happen to sit there or you would have to move back.

4.Please avoid sitting in middle, incase you take frequent breaks. Toilets are made available.

5.Please carry back rest, if you have back problem or otherwise ,since Pujas are for longer duration.

6.It would be nice, to meditate or sit quiet and not chit chat/sleep while the Pujas and Homas and the chantings are going on and maintain the sanctity of the place.

7.Please put your phone on silent mode and avoid talking while the Pujas are going on, it might disturb your neighbour.

8.In case of small kids, please do make sure they are taken care of well in the venue.

9.For aged people, some chairs would be kept. In case its not, check with the help of volunteers to have the sitting arrangements made proper for them.

10.It would be nice, to carry a bottle of water. ( Based on the past year’s feedback. Water is available but not free,you will have to buy the bottles.)

11.Listening to the mantras chanted during the pujas and the homas is more important.So make sure you sit comfortably, any ways you wont figure much things out of what the Pandits are doing. As Swami Sadyojathah said last year that if you dont happen to meditate and listen to the mantras.Just practise to bring your mind again and again to the mantras. Mantras have a healing and rejuvenating effect on the mind body and soul.

12.Please make sure you eat the Prasadams after the Puja, the effect of Puja is considered to be complete after Prasadam.

13.Though the venue is close to the station, it would be nice to chalk down the transport for your coming and going back for a hassle free time of yours.
Considering the mumbai traffic, please make sure you leave early!

14.Please dont complain and co-operate with the volunteers and lend help to make this event at the best.

Do come in large numbers and make this event grand 🙂
Your participation is valuable 🙂
Wish you all a Refreshing Navratri 🙂
