Gurudev, yesterday you said that everything is Shiv Tattva (fundamental element or principle). So what is your message for the devotees of Krishna? Also, I don’t pray to Shiva but only to Krishna. Is it okay?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:
Lord Krishna and Lord Shiva are the same. In Chapter 10 of the Bhagavad Gita, on Vibhuti Yoga, Lord Krishna himself says, 'Rudranam shankaras-chasmi vitteho yaksa-rakshasam. Vasunam pavakas chasmi meruh shikharinam aham' (10.23)

Lord Krishna says, ‘Among the Rudras I am Lord Shiva’.
In the next verse He says, 'Purodhasam cha mukhyam mam viddhi partha brhaspatim. Senaninam aham skandah sarasam asmi sagarah'. (10.24)

Lord Krishna says, ‘Among the generals of war, I am Lord Kartikeya’.
So Lord Krishna and Lord Shiva are the same. There is no difference.

Gurudev, what is the secret to happiness?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:
The secret to happiness is in being without desires, and in focusing on how you can serve others. The more you serve, the more happiness you will get.
Having this feeling, 'I don't want anything for myself, I am contented', bring happiness. And the third thing that brings happiness is wisdom. Without wisdom there is no happiness in life.
