Sri Sri Ravishankar – Smile is the best ornament

Here are a collection of quotes of Sri Sri Ravishankar that he shared during various public meetings in November 2010 Your quality of life depends upon the proportion maintained between your responsibility and needs. You lead a good life if your needs are less than your responsibilities. Human values can take you from a state of dependency to total responsibility and carve out a responsible citizen in you. When you shoulder responsibility, your needs will automatically be met. It is our vision which needs to be broadened for any development to take place. When you are free from longing for yourself, you are free to give to others Meditation will lead you to eternal peace; do it with joy and commitment. Smile is the best ornament. Life here is heaven. Sri Sri Ravishankar
