When I do not know much about liberation how will I get the desire to be liberated?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

When you feel the bondage only then will you desire for liberation. When you are happy and you do not feel any bondage, then the desire for liberation will not come.

One who does not wish for happiness gets liberation, and one who does not even desire for liberation, receives love.

Those who are in love are not bothered about liberation. A lover thinks what is liberation? I do not need it. The Gopis used to say this, ‘We do not need any liberation; we do not need any knowledge, just being in love we are happy.’

The nature of love itself is liberation.
