Dear Gurudev, what can I do to increase my capacity to take your blessings? How can I make my cup bigger?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

In the Advanced Course you all have heard of the Shatt Sampatti (Six wealths, or six-fold virtues)

Sama (calmness or quietude of mind) 

Dama (self-control or restraint of the senses)
 
Uparati (satiety)

Titiksha (power of endurance)
 
Shradha (faith), and 

Samadhana (equanimity or one-pointedness of the mind)

This is what you must focus on increasing more in your life. By enhancing these virtues, your capacity to receive blessings will increase.

Among the four pillars of knowledge, the third one that has these six wealths, that is what we must increase.

Also we must do Seva (service) and Sadhana (spiritual practices).
