Guruji's Knowledge Sheet: Tourist or Pilgrim

Click on the button Bookmark and Share to share Sri Sri's divine knowledge topics.


What is the difference between a tourist and a pilgrim?

Both are on a journey. Whereas a tourist is satisfying the senses, a pilgrim is
in the quest of the truth. A tourist gets tired and tanned, while a pilgrim
sparkles with spirit. Every move a pilgrim makes is with sacredness and
gratitude, while a tourist is often preoccupied and unaware.

A tourist compares with other experiences and places and hence is not in the
present moment. But a pilgrim has a sense of sacredness, so he tends to be in
the present moment.

Most people in life are just tourists without even being aware of it. Only a few
make their life a pilgrimage. Tourists come, look around, take pictures in their
mind, only to come back again. Pilgrims are at home everywhere and are hollow
and empty.

When you consider life as sacred, nature waits on you.

Are you a tourist or a pilgrim?
