‘मृत्यु’ और ‘मोक्ष’ मेँ क्या फर्क है?
साँस खत्म और तमन्ना बाकी रहे, वो है ‘मृत्यु’
साँस बाकी रहे तमन्ना खत्म हो जाये, वो है ‘मोक्ष’
Difference between Death and Salvation
No breath… Desires exist.. i.e Death
Breath exists… No Desires….i.e Salvation ~~ Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
A talk by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
It’s often believed that if people become spiritual and dispassionate about the outcome of their actions, they will stagnate; there will be no progress. In fact, the opposite is true. Creativity and enthusiasm can spring only when you are well rested; and you cannot rest if you are anxious about the outcome of your actions.
When we perform every action with an eye on the end result, we get lost in the end and don’t enjoy the means of getting to the end. But when we perform some actions as an expression of joy and do not bother about the result, the action itself brings fulfillment. When we act expecting joy, the action becomes inferior. For example, you want to spread happiness, but if you try to find out whether the other person has become happy, you get entangled in a vicious circle. In the process, you lose your happiness!

A river needs two banks to flow. The difference between flood and a flowing river is that in the latter the water flows in a particular direction whereas in floods the water is muddled and has no direction. Similarly, in our life if the energy is not given a direction, it is all confusion. The life energy needs some direction to flow.
When you are happy, there is so much of life energy in you but when this life energy doesn’t know where to go, how to go, it gets stuck and rots! Just as water has to keep flowing, life has to keep moving. For life energy to move in a direction, commitment is essential. Life runs on commitment. A student takes admission in a school or college with a commitment. You go to a doctor with a commitment saying that you are going to take the medication or listen to whatever the doctor prescribes.
