Pain, poverty and prayer – what is the relationship? Why do only those who are in pain, or poverty resort to prayer?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

Not necessarily! The four types of people who pray are of course, one who is in pain, one who wants some more wealth they pray, and one who is on a deep quest and wants to know more about this life and knowledge. And then one who is enlightened, who is liberated, they also pray for the well-being of this whole world.
