Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:
Breathing, breathing, and breathing.
Breath is the biggest secret that nature has put in you. It is linked to your emotions. Through breathing exercise technique, you can control your emotions. I think many of you have experienced this, isn’t it? (Many raise their hands)
Those who have not experienced this, you must do a little bit of breathing exercises regularly, then you will have more say over your mind.

Q: Gurudev, When natural calamities happen, is there God's hand in natural calamities, or does man play a role?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:
It is both. Sometimes it is a mystery; you cannot explain how it is happening. And many other times, we have not been kind to nature. We have been exploiting it beyond the limit. And that is why nature responds in a furious manner.

Q: Gurudev, How to love someone who I do not understand?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:
As a baby is born, it looks into its mother’s eyes, and starts loving the mother. The baby does not know anything about the mother. It does not know the name of the mother, or the school she went to, what subjects she studied, or how old she is. The baby does not even care, it does not even know.
In the same way, the puppy or the dog in your house does not know you. If the dog knew you, perhaps it would not love you! (Laughter)
So, you don’t need to know someone to love them.

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:
See, if you don’t have much to do, and you have a lot of free time then fear will come to you in some or the other form. The fear of losing a loved one, or the fear of catching a disease, of the fear of dying; many different fears can take over you.
The antidote for fear is love and service.
If you keep yourself busy in doing some service, where is the time to think about anything? It is the same energy which manifests as fear, hatred or love. So if you channel the energy towards love, then it will not manifest as fear or hatred.
So, keeping busy, being active in doing some selfless service will help.
