Gurudev, Ram took birth to destroy Ravana, Krishna took birth to destroy Kamsa, Ayyappa took birth to destroy Mahishi, Bhima took birth to destroy Keejakkan.
Which demon are you going to destroy?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

Ignorance, corruption, dishonesty, cunningness; these are the things that clog society today.
We don’t need to make an effort to destroy it, just spread the knowledge. Spread the light and the darkness will disappear.

There are two things: one is, trying to get rid of darkness, here your attention is on darkness. But if you turn towards light and say you would like to light more lights, then darkness automatically goes away. This is what we need to do. Take a positive attitude.

People often say their religion is in danger. They create this fear-psychosis. This alarm-bell propels people to take some action and those actions are never so palatable. Actions induced through fear can only cause bitterness, but actions which are positive in attitude will bring happiness in the society.
