Gurudev, my father says that I don’t take stress,but end up giving a lot of stress to other people. If I give stress, I ask, why do they take it? Shouldn’t other people be managing their own stress?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

That’s another way to look at it too.

Sometimes people say, ‘I am here only to test your patience. God has put me on this planet to test everybody’s patience.’

There is an old proverb which says, ‘Nobody is the giver of problems or comfort. Problems and comforts are created by our own mind.’

We can feel comfortable anywhere and we can feel miserable anywhere we want, the choice is totally ours.
