Surrender and Responsibility

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. 57

Jai Gurudeva!

    Jai Gurudev,

    Another beautiful KS, beautifully explained and delivered.
    The good humour with which you both explain the Knowledge
    is .. lovely. So .. take full responsibility .. and then .. surrender !?

    Irrelevantly, perhaps, here is an allegorical story (pl overlook how incomplete and how badly told it is ) ..
    Not a long time time ago, in a far-away land ..
    there is lots of activity, and much excitement. so many exotic peoples
    coming together for the good of all 🙂
    the black fairy (? ) is there too .. and ofcourse, there are messages from so m people, mostly : stay-away !
    then she gets a loving greeting, but while the recognition is instantaneous,
    her panic button still goes off ! and takes a while to reorient.
    All is joy and celebration and Angels.
    On the independence day, come the many folk from the many lands.
    the black fairy is there too, having been told she can come!
    Joy and dancing .. but wait ! something is not quite right : look at the
    demeanours of those stern-faced guys.
    what did you do ? nothing, wails the black fairy.
    Just go-away ! is what she concludes.
    But some Great White Force keeps her around.
    Its not till much later till she wonders .. maybe they were asking her to stay !!
