Q: If we have to look at the Guru or the Guru Tattva, then what kind of sight do we need?
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: One should feel that everyone belongs to him; and one should have tolerance. In one day I have to listen to 2000 to 3000 questions. Do I listen to them or not? No matter how many questions, I listen to them all. Do I listen to them with joy or not?
So, stability of the mind; sharpness of the intellect; softness of the heart. These three are important in life.
Heart should be soft, intellect should be sharp & mind should be pleasant. Never lose these three.
Even if it seems to be lost, think that it is not gone away but is there and just hidden.
To purify your intellect,
you need knowledge;
to purify your heart,
you need love;
to purify your karma,
you need seva;
All three should go together.
