Sanyas and Your Associations

For 7 years, every week Guruji (Sri Sri Ravi Shankar) used to send out a page of Knowledge to be read out and discussed at the satsangs happening all over the world. He used to call it the Knowledge fax … This was before email became popular enough for everyone to use :)

Every week we waited eagerly for what Guruji would say through these Knowledge Sheets, many times we would be with Him while He dictated them out and we compiled them. The atmosphere would always be full of wisdom coupled with big doses of mirth. And the Knowledge sheets themselves are always profound, sometimes quite funny…

Dinesh and i decided to do a commentary on them, reliving those precious moments spent with Guruji, reading them out for you and peppering them with stories and examples of how this Knowledge from Him has come alive for us in our lives.

Re reading them now, after so many years of Sadhana, Seva and Satsang has made us realise just how beautiful and precious these words from Him are … We are thoroughly enjoying ourselves making these videos, we know you will love watching them too.

Knowledge sheet no. 47

    Jai gurudev!
    all the Knowledge sheets heard from you are really very much useful in daily life. after hearing from you they are more easily understood.
    one ques different from the track bau..
    i just wanted to know for how much time we should do Om Namaha Shivay chanting daily?

    Some people/teachers say that, doing it too much is dangerous if we are unable to handle the energy.

    But how much is too much..

    I do it with the CD in Guruji’s voice. So, how much time minimum or maximum we should do ONS chanting daily?

    undoubtedly it is difficult to let go anything you are fond of but certainly not impossible especially if you cling to your guru and surrender everything especially our ego..it brings in great great peace and strength to move ahead in life…jgd

  11. BAWA I agree with the points that Sanyas is the feeling ” I am nothing and I want nothing” or ” I am everything and I have everything”. Also, I understand that we will never be satisfied in life our desires only increases so it is essential to stay happy and one should want nothing to stay happy. The question that arises in my mind is Desires and wants also play a positive role…It gives you the energy and enthusiam to achieve what you want in Life…If I want to achieve something in Life and at the same time I will feel I am nothing and I want nothing then how will I achieve it in Life ??? I feel as long as the desires gives you a positive energy and not making your life miserable it is fine to want things with the belief that if anyhow I dont achieve it than also it will be fine with me…We should want things but not be greedy for it…Wat do you say on that ???
    Hope to hear from you soon …Jai Gurudev…

      You do whatever it is you need to do and let go of the results. You do stuff because you are happy, not to be happy.
