Q: What is your suggestion for those who want to concur the world through a sharp intellect?
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: Yes, you sharpen your intellect but don’t think that you can drink through the eyes. You can only see through the eyes. You cannot drink thought the nose or ears. Similarly, you can know of the Divine and satisfy your intellect. However, if understood through the intellect that there is no God, then you will not get the experience. Can you listen to music though the eyes?

Q: I don’t want to be reborn as a human being because there are so many cruel people. Please tell me what I should do? 
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: There is a Sanskrit saying which says, “My salutations to the cruel people first, then the good people”. This is because the cruel set an example on how we should not be. They harm themselves but give us a lesson. Secondly, if there are only good people in the world then their value will decrease. Have you seen the statue of Lord Natraj (dancing form of Lord Shiva)? Below his feet, there is a rakshasha (devil). Bad people are there in the world, but they should be below the feet of the good people.

Q: What should I do to come in God’s most wanted or the top 10 list of people?
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: The desire to be in the top ten along with seva is good enough to keep you on the right path. This is healthy competition. We should have such competition.
