It seems we are rag dolls. Could you please throw some light on this?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

Yes, it is a very big philosophical question.

If you ask anyone who did very good work, or those who have done the worst crime, they say somehow they did not do it, it just happened through them. This is the experience of many people.

There is something inside you, which is just a witness of all the things that are happening around you. If you would like to read more on this topic, read the book Ashtavakra Gita or Yoga Vasistha. These will give you a much deeper understanding.
