Gurudev, my name is Akram and I have come after completing my sentence of 7 years’ imprisonment. I saw my life as an abyss of total darkness. I used to wish that there would be a time when I would see myself as so fortunate as to love myself again. I was depressed and had become an alcoholic in the prison. One day I met Mr. Sharma who was conducting a course and he took me along and asked me to do the course too. He had me do the course and after that I came to know what life was in its true essence. I truly learnt the true art of living that day and I did several courses consecutively. Today I am happy that I have had the opportunity to see a real Guru in person. May God bless you!

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

Very good. Now you must become a teacher as well! Become a teacher and bring blessings to everyone.
