What is the most important Truth of Life? - Sri Sri Ravi Shankar Answers

There is some element within us that does not perish, that does not die. There is something within us that does not diminish, that is non erasable, which is unchanting and undying. If even the slightest attention is directed to it, life becomes easy and uncomplicated. This is the most important truth of life.

There is a stream of awareness within us that cannot be destroyed, which is undying. To acknowledge and observe this stream is spirituality. Such courage, such strength, such solidity comes in life that nothing can shake you, no one can shake you. It is a subtle stream; I have not changed, I have not grown old, I am just the same.


We need to reduce our desires and take on more responsibilities. And when in our life, personal needs disappear and desires no longer exist; and extraordinary, mystical ability is awakened within us that enables us to bless others.

When you need nothing, you will become so strong that whatever you say to anyone will become a boon to them. If you bless anyone, it will manifest.
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
