Q: Gurudev, I am from the Research field. I find it very difficult to invent new things and innovate. What advice can you give to researchers like me so that we can enhance our creative talent?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:
You should meditate regularly. Meditation and Vairagya(dispassion) will really help in this.

Every once in a while, you should just sit back and realize that this entire world is just like a dream. This entire world will come to an end one day. There is nothing for you to take away from here. This is what you need to bring into your awareness time and again. This will strengthen your dispassion. As you grow in dispassion, you will find that you are able to go deeper into meditation.

Gurudev, what is sacrifice? What should I sacrifice and how should I perform it?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:
Let us understand what sacrifice means. You like something and you want to have it, but for something better to happen for everyone else, you give that up. That is called sacrifice.
You wanted to go for a picnic or a movie, but then you were needed to do some work somewhere else, which would benefit others. So you give up your pleasure trip, and do what is good for the people. That is what sacrifice is.
Where there is love, there is no sacrifice needed. You don’t say, mother sacrificed going on a trip because the child was not well. The child’s well being is of utmost importance for the mother, so she did not sacrifice anything. Do you see what I’m saying?
It is when you strongly desire something and give it up because it can bring lot of good to others, then it is sacrifice.
