‘My life has never been the same’
Vilnius, (Lithuania), June 1: With the aim of globalizing spirituality, Sri Sri recently visited Lithuania. He emphasized human values and a broad-minded approach to find solutions to the global challenges of fanaticism and terrorism.
Besides a public address, Sri Sri interacted with residents of Vilnius everyday.
Excerpts from a brief interaction on June 1.

Gift of knowledge:
"This winter I was coming from Canada, through the security check, and the guard came running to me and asked, “Are you the man on the cover of this book?” (A friend had given him the book Celebrating Silence for his birthday). The man said to me, ‘After I started reading this book, my life has never been the same!’
It’s a good idea to gift a knowledge book. It can transform a person’s life!”

H.H Sri Sri Ravi Shankar then narrated a story from Buddha’s life:
“When Buddha was teaching meditation, a lot of people came to learn. For 40 years, Buddha had traveled from city to city. Naturally, they wanted a permanent place for meditators and devotees. They found a garden, a beautiful place. The land belonged to a prince. A businessman told the prince that this place could bring peace to many people. However, the prince was not spiritual. He demanded an exorbitant price: “If you cover the land with gold coins, then I’ll let you buy it.” The businessman said: “Yes! If a piece of land can bring peace to so many people, then it’s worth it!” The businessman got his friends involved and together they bought the land from the prince. And for thousands of years, it was a place of spiritual peace for many people.
If a place absorbs all the good thoughts and vibrations of meditators, then the place changes.”
