Gurudev, I am very enthusiastic about fighting the elections, but I have stage fear. How to get rid of it?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:
Go for the DSN course. And also do the happiness survey. This is the best thing.
How many people have done the happiness survey? All those who have not done it, take the happiness forms, make a group of 2-3 people and go door to door. Some people will close their doors on your face. Never mind, move on to the next house with a smile.
When people criticise you and still you smile, all the fear will be gone. Your personality will blossom. So definitely do the happiness survey.

Q: Gurudev, This natural calamity has brought a lot of disaster around, but it has also brought about a spirit of oneness and belongingness. How can we maintain it?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:
You know, feelings cannot be maintained. You cannot have the same feelings all through. Feelings are like waves, they come and go. They come up and go down. So, you should not worry about maintaining the feelings or oneness. Just take it for granted that there is oneness and move on.

Gurudev, what is the best way to control the mind?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:
Why do you want to control the mind? You want the mind to stay in one place, right. That is what you mean by control.
Why is it going here and there? If there is a nice program on television, do you need to control your mind to watch it? You love a child, you love your spouse, do you have to try to focus your mind on them? No!
Whatever you love, your mind is already focused on that.
When do you need to focus? When you do not like something. Even there, if you do not like something, you don’t need to focus, as the mind already does not like it
.
Focus is needed when your mind is looking for something else other than what is right now. In such situations, breathing, Sudarshan Kriya, and yoga will help.

Gurudev, I have a girlfriend and we truly love each other and want to get married, but she is Manglik. My parents are against our marriage because of this. Please tell me what to do.

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:
Look, if your parents believe in this and they have a strong feeling for it, then as you sow, so shall you reap (meaning: what you believe in, is what will bring the outcome).
But if you say, 'God is beyond all that, and I have deep devotion in the Divine, and he will pull me out of all this', then it is a different thing.
So you have to take steps in agreement with everyone.
Whenever any Yagna (fire ceremony), or any auspicious work is to be done, the first step is to know everyone's agreement. In the beginning only, they generally ask, 'Is everyone in agreement to do this work? '
If everyone is in agreement then everyone will participate.
So, all of you, sit down together and look at the situation and make a decision. If all of you feel that 'God’s grace is above all this, and with devotion and prayer it will all be taken care of', then all planetary affects will be nullified.
Also, just by chanting 'Om Namah Shivaya', everything will be alright.
Yesterday, somebody in Pune told me that he met an astrologer. The astrologer told him, 'How are things going well for you. You chart says that you have many problems'.
He told the astrologer, 'By the grace of God, everything is going well'.
This is very true; devotion, grace and blessings are above all.
