Can the growth of the nation happen with spirituality?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

Definitely.

Only with spirituality can the growth of the nation happen.

Mahatma Gandhi was a deeply spiritual person. He used to read the Bhagavad Gita every day. My teacher was the one who taught the Bhagavad Gita to Gandhiji. He is still alive and he is 113 years old.

Gandhiji used to conduct satsangs everyday. With that he generated a movement. The bhajans that happened when Sri Anna Hazare was fasting was done by people from the Art of Living. They used to sing bhajans daily.
