7 Dec 2011 - QA 4

Guruji, you have said to overcome habits one should take a vow. What is a vow?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

If you have any bad habits, you can take a vow.

If you are habituated towards talking negative, then you say, ‘today I am not going to talk negative. I am not going to complain about anybody.’

So taking such steps makes a big difference.

If you are used to overeating and you take a step, okay I am not going to overeat for one week. I am going to eat only a little. That is a vow.
