Venue: The Auditorium @ Shaw Foundation Alumni House
It was a lively hour spent with Sri Sri at his humorous best!
In a fiercely competitive world, everyone is in an endless pursuit of ‘the dream’, a rat race which presents a mirage of success and happiness at the end. We are all either part of it or gearing up for it! How does one take part without getting bogged down or losing sight of what lies beyond and what really matters?
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar will share simple and effective pointers to get ahead in the rat race and enjoy the journey. Hear it from the man who has inspired millions of people to true success!
“Life is nothing to be very serious about. Life is a ball in your hands to play with. Don’t hold on to the ball.” – Sri Sri
