Our consciousness is very ancient
See the ocean, how non-stop the waves keep coming. It doesn't get bored. Birds sing the same song, they don’t get bored. Every morning birds sing, all their life. They don’t get bored. It is human beings who get bored. ’Oh once again the same thing.’ And why do we get bored? It is because of memory.
If you are at ease with yourself everyone will be at ease with you
Contentment and happiness are very important. Other things come and go. We have come on this planet so many times, we will come again. Life is continuous; it is coming and going, coming and going.

The best gift is wisdom
"When you turn the candle upside down, still the flame always goes up. In life also, so many incidences will come where your enthusiasm is put down; your spirit goes down. At that time remember ‘I am like the candle and I will come out of this. Nothing whatsoever can stop my spirit and enthusiasm." Sri Sri

Trust in the goodness of people
"There are three types of trust essential in life; one is trust in the infinite power that is governing this world. Second is trust in the goodness of people around. There are good people in the world, if you think everybody is bad then you will become bad as well. If you think everybody is not okay then you become so small, you shrink and you will also be part of them. There are good people on this planet, trust in the goodness of people." Sri Sri

So, make music an integral part of your life. The veena is the most ancient instrument known to mankind. Its resonance is still un-paralleled, captivating and takes you to another dimension. Eat music, drink music and sleep music till you can hear your soul song of eternity".

Sahasra Veena Jhenkara - (1110 Veena Concert)
28 Mar 2012, Palace Grounds, Bangalore, Karnataka, India
Music Heals your Emotions
"The Veena is the most ancient musical instrument known to mankind. Even to this day, it resonates; it kindles harmony and it unites the spirit.
Today we have 1110 Veena artistes with us, playing in one symphony. This is a feat by itself. The Veena has twenty-four frets, just like the vertebrae in our spine (twenty four vertebrae). It is akin to our human physiology, and when the strings resonate, it touches the heart and uplifts the spirit." Sri Sri

Education is meant to make us living examples of high standards of ethics
Sri Sri received an honorary doctrate from Gyan Vihar University.
"This is what education should do. What we receive we should give back to society, and as students you have received so much education here, now see how you can put that into use in life. The trouble in today’s world is not because of lack of education but because education is being misrepresented, misused and misunderstood. We need to clear these three things." said Sri Sri

The Voice of Nature
"Formalities are like wrapping paper. When we buy something, it is wrapped in paper. Similarly, in life formalities should be given only that much importance. Rest of the time we should sit informally. That is what we call satsang. Satsang means what? Where we can sit with intimacy and belongingness; sit with heart to heart connection – that is satsang." Sri Sri
