I am a strong believer of family values. So under the circumstances that we are in now, some of the most tolerant societies are beginning to show intolerance. We are hearing bad news from all over the world. What values should we inculcate in our children from our home?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

As I said,

  • Non- violence
  • Compassion
  • Sense of belongingness
  • To live with differences and to live with disagreements.

You know when you have disagreements you try to run away, no! You should stay on with disagreement; this great lesson you know. And the ability to criticize and the ability to take criticism. These are the values we need to inculcate and Art of Living programs are geared up to bring these values in the youths. We have this beautiful programme Yes+ (Youth Empowerment Seminar). You should listen to the youths’ experiences after they finish the course. It really touches your heart.
