Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:
Yes, bringing change in society is a collective effort. So I said that everybody should participate. Don’t say, 'Gurudev, you do it. You take care of terrorists, you change them'. No! It is a collective effort. Each one of us has to work to reduce crime, stress and violence in society. So you all think. Give one hour a day to become volunteers for a better India, and see what volunteer work we can do.
Do you know, one plastic cover, like the milk packet that we have, if burnt can cause cancer to a thousand people. That much of dioxin comes out of plastic, if anyone burns it. So don't we have to inform everyone about this? We have to let people know? Instead all that we do is worry about small little things here and there in our life. We worry about things, people, comments, opinions and all these small things. Is it okay to sit like that worry about these insignificant things?
I tell you, be simplicity, natural, and adjusting with everyone. This is what we have to do. Otherwise, if something small happens, we get ready to fight. We should not do that. Leave all kinds of prejudice, and whatever you can do, you do it with love and a sense of service.
