On July 27th, 1998, Hob Harbery wrote in The Ottawa Citizen newspaper an article about the preacher of the unconditioned love. He said, "More than 400 persons pay more than US $ 200000.00 to spend the next week with the Indian Sri Sri Ravis Shanker in Al Ashram – where he used to stay alone - behind Shawinigan, Canada".
Shanker's preaching states that man may pay any price to gain peace of mind that makes him smiling all the time, never being angry nor nervous and loving to all people with no conditions. Shanker established 80 centers around the world. Every year, he spends eight months traveling to teach people how to get rid of their negative emotions. He sees that inner peace and happiness can be easily acquired when man loves and is loved.
Once, Shanker remained silent for ten days. He occupied himself with nothing around him. Then, he felt that his life and feelings were changed and that all people liked to speak with him for being so attractive. Therefore, he was invited in many countries all over the world to speak about his experience. His speech shows that the human soul is always eager to enjoy its inner peace.
Thus, the Word of God came Himself to announce, "God's kingdom is inside you." It means that we do not need to keep silent for ten days. We need to sit always at our God's feet to have His great peace inside us. His Holy Spirit takes us over every temporal tension and turns our hearts into happy heavens so that we would be filled with love, happiness, peace and righteousness which affect our relation with others.
Oh God! Let me enter my Chamber
And forget every thing around me.
Let me enjoy being near You, as You establish Your kingdom inside me.
Fill me with the fruits of Your Holy Spirit:
Love, happiness, peace and righteousness.
Let me be an ambassador for You
To transfer Your love for every one.
The Cracked Pot
