Guruji, you had advised us to increase worthiness through seva, sadhana and satsang. That is what I did. Now I feel that I have greater worthiness, but have achieved very little. This saddens me. Where did the mistake happen?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

No! You keep increasing your worthiness, and automatically your worth will grow. The Giver is giving so much, one only needs to receive.
The Giver is giving away with a thousand hands, but you have only two hands. How much can you take with two hands?
That is why it is said, spread open your garment (jholi) to receive. Why? So much is being given which will not fit in your two hands.
Realize that you are getting so much, more than you can manage to take.
