  1. Gurudev, Beloved Gurudev, can you speak on the future of education? It seems our curriculum is old fashioned, not useful for work and not supporting peace in the world. Will this change and how?

    Yes, you are absolutely right! It has to change, and you and me should change it. We should put all our efforts to change it.

    In India, The Art of Living has developed new educational methods for our schools. We have about 70-80 paid schools and over 4 ...

  2. Gurudev, If children are busy attending six hours of school, and then four more hours of tuition classes, how and when can they get the time to enhance their talents? How can the education system be reformed?

    I suggest you to make them regularly practice a little Pranayama and to meditate daily. They will not feel the need for tuition classes anymore.
    If you really have to, then one hour of tuitions is more than sufficient for them. To enhance their int ...

  3. Gurudev, over a period of time, there have been various emotions that have brought forth great literature, but those have been of negative emotions, like pain and longing and it does not feel apt. I feel one can go into greater levels of the positive side. How can I use both?

    You must remember that people are very different. We are not in a homogenous society, we are in a very heterogeneous society. Even within an individual, he is not the same throughout; his moods change, his feelings change.
    For example, when someone wa ...

  5. Gurudev, what should be my role to curb terrorism?

    Our role to curb terrorism should be through education. We need to interact with people. There is no other way, because terrorists don’t come and fight with you face to face. If they face you and fight with you, then you can do something. They hide like co ...
  6. Gurudev, with the growing pressure on children, so many schools are aware that their students abuse substances. Yet, they prevent the learning of yoga and meditation.

    That is foolish. They should stop the children from drugs, alcohol and other abuse. I was so shocked to read that one school became free from this. We have 14 schools, I am sure none of our schools are anywhere close to alcohol or drugs.
    Today, it has ...
  7. Gurudev, I find that in spite of producing educated graduates, we still need to train them again before they can be used in our industry. How can we partner with your University, and introduce some education that is relevant for our industry?

    Definitely; we can have skill centres. You may talk to Dr. Mishra, the Vice Chancellor (of Sri Sri University in Orissa) and the Board members, they are present here. We will think and design new programmes and new curriculum for the students.

    I want t ...

  8. Gurudev, how should we answer those who say, ‘What is the problem if people convert when they get better education and healthcare?'

    Mahatma Gandhi has said that it is a crime to convert people by giving them education and some money. This is a big crime and we should never do that.
    Every individual has got the right to make his own decision, and you cannot lure someone to change t ...
  9. Gurudev, What should I do if the stress factor is coming from outside. If it is something I do not control or it is beyond me. How do I transmit peace?

    That is why we need to educate people on how to handle their stress. If one person is not well in the family, does it not affect the whole family? Yes, it does affect. Similarly, if a few are mentally unwell in the society, crime increases in society.

  10. Gurudev, One of my friends has gone insane. He works 24X7. His parents don’t know what to do. I don’t know what to do.

    I see this happening a lot nowadays. There is so much peer pressure, pressure to perform well in exams. So they keep reading so much day and night.
    A youth came and told me that he reads with four big lamps focused on his table and he studies day and ...
