Guruji, how do I know you – the Guru, beyond the body? How do I understand the Guru? My understanding feels very small for this.

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

When you realize that your understanding is beginning to fall short that itself is enough. Just relax and repose in yourself.

This is what love is. Love means what? Abheda - I am not different from him and he is not different me.

See, when someone abuses a child, what does the father say? ‘If you have abused my child, it means you have abused me.’

Or if you abuse someone’s mother or father, what will the child say? They will say, ‘Abusing my parents is the same as abusing me.’ They will protest, isn’t it? That means there is unity. Where there is belongingness, a feeling of unity, that is a sign of love.
