Meditation keeps the energy high in the whole surroundings

Continued from the last post:

Our Yuvacharyas went to get license for a factory. They refused to pay any bribe. Without any anger and with full confidence they said, “Sir, we move by principles of the ‘Art of Living’ and we will not be giving any bribe. We can come to you for 50 times if you want, but we won’t pay any bribe.” That man very easily gave them the license. I would want all of you to move ahead in teams like this.

You all have time here to develop a multifaceted personality. Gain as much talent as you can. We need to enhance our talents along with Yoga, Pranayama and meditation. We will do that. Debating groups, journalism groups... Some people should frame talk shows. Those who do not know public speaking should speak in public; those who are bad singers should come and sing in mike. We keep on doing what we know, and there is no joy in that. Venture in that which you do not know. Let those, who don’t know how to prepare food, cook food. Then it may be a problem for them who know how to eat! This way we should take it as a challenge to practice that which we don’t have in us.

How many of you felt energized just after entering the campus? Many of you have travelled for long and come here. Many of you have travelled for three-four days. How many of you feel that this is unusual that entering a place makes you refreshed. You know, why does this happen?
(Because of you, Guruji!)

It is because people have been meditating here. Meditation keeps the energy high in the whole surroundings. This is the effect of meditation, knowledge and devotion. So, we need to keep this energy high, and to do that you don’t miss the morning exercises. We will have different types of yoga for you – sports yoga, village women yoga, Dance yoga, Animal yoga and philosophical yoga. We can avoid any arguments, back biting or criticizing. If you feel any such thing in your mind, you can write it down and put it in botheration basket. Suppose somebody in your room is snoring! You definitely cannot live for three-four days with somebody who is snoring. Either you take ear plugs or we will put all snorers in one room, and we will have an orchestra! There is nothing wrong in snoring. Don’t feel guilty if anybody does that. If there are many snorers, we will allot rooms for them. Only one thing which needs to be considered is that all snorers have to go to bed at the same time. Then only symphony will come along! (Bubbles of Laughter)

None of you is a guest here. All of you are hosts and you must act like hosts, and not guests. This is your place. You have to create a homely atmosphere. It is already there but you need to get that to yourself. So, everyone is a host, only I am guest here! Feel absolutely relaxed and at home. You anyway know that, no body needs to tell you that.
Those who want to write poems and articles should do all these things here. Rest of everything is a surprise for you!
