Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar’s Navrátri message

“There are some things you can do, you do them. And some things you cannot do – and the things that you cannot do, by thinking about it, it doesn’t make them happen, you only make yourself miserable.

We get miserable looking at others behaviors – you cannot correct everybody and everything on the planet. Whatever you can do, you do and let go, in letting go you experience samádhi.

Offering all the good qualities and bad qualities you have to the Divine Mother, you get into deep meditation.

So, this is the time to take that deep inner spiritual rest.

Our mind is tired with desires and cravings, with do’s and don’ts, rights and wrongs. All these things are getting into our head and we get into a mess.

This is the time to just drop everything. And when we can drop everything and repose in ourselves, then samádhi, deep meditation happens.

And that is the basis of all success in life.

Here (during Navrátri) we pray to the Mother Divine and say ‘whatever is right it is your job to maintain it and whatever is wrong it is your job to correct it. I’m neither here to correct anything or desire anything, you know what is best for me’.

With this feeling of offering the past, the present and the future at the feet, to the infinite power, we repose in ourselves – that is Navrátri.

We give deep rest to our mind, our soul – because our soul is longing for rest – it’s tired with

all these cravings, all the rights and wrongs and concepts that we are struggling with in our life.

So, enjoy the Navrátri celebrations.”
