Though you have heard "Don't judge", judgement comes unavoidably in day-to-day life. By the actions and behaviour of people, you either approve or disapprove. But always remember that everything is changing, do not hold on to the judgement. Otherwise your judgement gets solidified like a rock. It brings misery for you and for others.
If judgements are lighter, like air, like a breeze, they bring in fragrance, then move away. Or they could bring a foul smell, then move away. But they should not stay forever.
Judgements are so subtle that you are not even aware of their existence. Only when you are full of love and compassion, can you ever be free from all judgements.

Yet the world cannot move without judgements. Until you judge something as good or bad, you cannot do any action. You want to buy only good apples in the market. If someone lies to you ten times, the next time he speaks it could also be a lie - a judgement happens automatically.

See the possibility that people and things can change at any time and don’t hold on to judgements.

[From "An Intimate Note to the Sincere Seeker]

Qn : Is there something that God cannot Do?
Sri Sri : God cannot be surprised (laughter) and he cannot take revenge on you.

Feel grateful for your very existence, your very body, all that you have, and all the love you have received. And this gratefulness will bring you a flood of prosperity, joy, and happiness.

Truth triumphs! After 9 years of being accused for murder & imprisoned for months, finally the Kanchi Shankaracharya has been honorably acquitted. All those journalists who had maligned the Shankaracharya and Sanathana Dharma now owe an apology.

Confusion is thinking that more joy would come from the other way, when you have already chosen one way. Whichever you choose, you think the other will give you more joy. Joy is not going to be better from anything. YOU are the source of Joy!

Think of someone you love...When they progress in life, you feel as if its your own progress.

Why don’t you take everybody as your own.

Always accept that you don't know what you can do. Ignorance of your capability can expand you. When you know what you can do, you can do things. When you don't know what you can do, you can do things even better!

Know Your Child : Parenting Tip:

Often parents think that children should not cry and so they pamper them. This is not good. Crying helps to open up the lungs. If children are not allowed to cry, they will not know how to release pent-up emotions. A child who does not cry gets depressed. A child who laughs and cries freely cannot get depressed.

When children want to cry, they will find an excuse to do so. They may ask for something and when that is given to them, they will ask for something else. They may appear to be making a fuss but they just want an excuse to cry. Parents might try to pacify them by giving them many things because they like to see their children smiling. But this will not work. They tend to forget that children like crying for some time and that it is good for their health.

One who is not amazed by the magnificence of this creation, his eyes are not opened yet.

Q: How to make friends and influence people?

Sri Sri: No need to read the book. (Laughter)
Wanting to influence is itself a problem. What do you get by influencing people around you? You don't know one secret: if you influence somebody, or make a big impression on them, they become jealous of you. And then, they try to pull you down. Or they don't care and they make fun of you. In either case, what do you gain? More problems.

Just be your natural self. Simplicity, honesty, contentment, creativity - these will influence all the people around you.

Love is preserved by wisdom, destroyed by demand, tested by doubt, nourished by longing. It blossoms with faith and grows with gratitude. Love is the essence of the universe. You are Love!

Grace grows by gratitude. When you demand, there is no Grace, but when you are grateful It comes in abundance.The mind is connected with the moon. So, all our festivals are connected with the moon. An atmosphere of festivity and celebration keeps the spirits high. Karthik Poornima is also known as Dev Diwali. The Gods celebrate Diwali today and the sky is lit up with the light of the full moon.

See people beyond their expressions. What a person expresses is not what they're all about. There is a lot of unexpressed love in each life. Just recognizing this, your heart expands; then, you’ll never be stuck with what someone says or does.

Don’t underestimate your strength. I tell you, you can make miracles. You can turn things -  -  -  - around 180 degrees.

All those who are grown up physically, but want to be a child again, or think you are one, just go for it! Don't worry about what others think about you. If the world calls us crazy, let them say, but you be happy. Be in the present and be natural. What is most important in the world is innocence along with intelligence.

It is this wisdom of yoga that transforms one  from arrogance to self-confidence;  from meekness to humility; from the burden of dependence to the realization of interdependence;  from craving for freedom to the recognition of unbounded-ness; from a limited ownership to oneness with the Whole.

Don't let your desires obscure your wisdom. Life is a swing between "I want my way!" and "Let Thy Will Be Done!"

Love is a universal language but this film is in Tamil.

When you want to teach anybody a lesson, it never happens because you are acting out of anger. Only with true compassion can you teach people a real lesson. Then they listen because it touches their heart. Have this attitude, "Come what may, I will not get hurt. If someone is nasty, I will learn to be compassionate."

Sometimes you feel, "This is too much. I can't handle any more." I tell you, you will never be given anything you cannot handle. The water will come up to the nose, but it will not go beyond.

I am glad that the Pope has said what I've been saying for decades, that God is neither Hindu, nor Catholic, nor Muslim. God is God! It is unfortunate that people are divided where they should unite. There is only One Cosmic Intelligence.

Attachment is that which gives you pain. Love is that without which you cannot live. If love becomes attachment, then the same love which was giving you joy, starts to inflict pain. Attachment is when you want something in return. If you love and don't want anything in return, then that love doesn't turn into attachment.
