The role of Spirituality in the growth of the nation

“Can the growth of the nation happen with spirituality?” Answering to this question by a disciple, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, the founder of Art of Living, explained it saying the growth stands out with the spirituality in the nation.

“Only with spirituality can the growth of the nation happen.”

“Mahatma Gandhi was a deeply spiritual person. He used to read the Bhagavad Gita every day. My teacher was the one who taught the Bhagavad Gita to Gandhiji. He is still alive and he is 113 years old.”

“Gandhiji used to conduct satsangs everyday. With that he generated a movement. The bhajans that happened when Sri Anna Hazare was fasting was done by people from the Art of Living. They used to sing bhajans daily.”
