Q: Dear Guruji, sometimes I see my friends in a state of depression. They don’t believe in Art of Living, in meditation or breathing techniques. Can I take their pain and pass it on to you? Is it possible? I know you are the champion in resolving problems.
Sri Sri: Yes.
But why don’t you pray that they get the sense to start meditating?
You can do that. You can relieve them by blessing their pain and suffering, but that is not a permanent solution because they may get back into it again. But if you pray for wisdom to dawn in them, then it is forever. For that wisdom will take care of them for the rest of their lives.
Q: How true is the statement that children choose their parents before they are born. Can parents pray for having children, who choose a good life for themselves?
Sri Sri: Listen, you can’t ask me what you should pray for. Prayer automatically happens. It’s there already! You are already praying for good children.
Should parents pray for good children is an obsolete question. It doesn’t mean anything. You are already praying and that’s why you were asking.
