Everyone may not understand the value of a having a bearded, robe-wearing Guru from India. It might not be crystal clear what the big deal is about meditation or wisdom from thousands of years ago. All of this might appear foreign and confusing.
But, when you are around Sri Sri Ravi Shankar you cannot miss seeing a person overflowing with laughter, wisdom, compassion and love - exploding with life itself.
Thank you to the most amazing person I have met on this planet, to someone who reminded me of the simple truths I knew as a kid, to the value of giving and my connection to everyone, who showed me the power of silence, and turned my attention away from the small and fleeting events to the incredible life inside.
Thank you for not hiding in a cave somewhere, content in your own bliss, but instead for choosing a life of non-stop work, teaching me and millions of other people the incredible tools that allow the life inside to grow and shine brighter, which has made my life more meaningful and joyful each year.
