Gurudev, in the past few years there seems to be an increase in natural calamities like tsunamis, earthquakes, tornados and floods. Will there be a way to completely avert these happenings through sadhana, meditation or yagya?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

When people are putting so many of these dynamites under the earth, drilling mountains and mining, the earth reacts. We must care for nature. People are not caring enough for nature.

One of the reasons for tsunami is said to be the cutting of so many trees; building of so many dams where they should not have been built. All in the name of hydro project development.
So, this is nature’s fury, that is one thing.

Secondly, sometimes you can’t avoid it, creation and destruction are part of nature. And time plays an important role. At a particular time, nature undergoes these cycles.

Do you know, scientists have said that our Solar System is surrounded by many black holes?

Our Sun is moving through them, escaping all the black holes; it can get sucked in any time. The black holes come so close, and then the Sun moves away, and the black holes move away. When the Sun gets sucked in, the entire solar system will collapse into nothingness.
Just imagine all this, everything will become nothing, in no time, and that can happen any time! Are you not scared? You are all happy! You are happy listening that everything will be sucked in to a hole, nothing will remain. Nothing!

Then you don’t have to worry about finding a job, a partner, a soul mate; you won’t have to worry. In fact, everybody will be dissolved into one whole soul mate; everything will be dissolved, finished.
