Gurudev, nowadays everyone gives me free advice. Each one is trying to be my Guru (Teacher). Without asking I am getting the advice. Whose advice I should listen to and whose I should not?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

This is not only nowadays, it is happening successively since many decades. One should listen to everyone and do what one wants to.

There is no cover over the ears, they are open. Why? So that you can hear everything, but see only that which you want to see. That is why eyes have lids over them. Ears don’t have that. Otherwise we could have closed the ears also.

Therefore listen to everyone, but don’t take it too much inside. You have understood that all are giving free advice, and it is okay.
