„All that is needed to make life harmonious, palatable, blissful – is called the Art of Living.“

—  Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Public Talk, Budapest, Hungary (June 2009)
Contexte: All that is needed to make life harmonious, palatable, blissful – is called the Art of Living. In a guitar, all the six strings have to be tuned; a drum needs to be tuned. Similarly, the various aspects of life have to be tuned. Our relationship with our Self, the people in our family, in the work-place, in society – all these need to be tuned.
The nurturing of the physical, social and spiritual aspects is called the Art of Living.

„Charity should be self-sustainable.“

—  Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Interview with Forbes Magazine (2009)
Contexte: Charity should be self-sustainable. That is, it should create more wealth rather than perpetuating the cycle of poverty and dependence. In this sense, the best form of charity would be providing quality education for children and more importantly, building a good character in them.

„The key is to harness the ancient wisdom and being innovative with the modern.“

—  Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

The Hindustan Times (Nov., 2009)
Contexte: Pluralism and embracing people of all cultures should be part of our education. The multicultural, multi-religious fabric are the glory and beauty of the planet. If this thought is imparted to children at an early age, they will love the difference. We need to bring about that multi-cultural and multi-ethnic approach, which in Sanskrit we call Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam (The whole world is one family.)
Through right education, we can change and unite the hearts and minds of people. The key is to harness the ancient wisdom and being innovative with the modern. We, as global citizens, should vow to take this responsibility.
