Origin of Sudarshan Kriya

Sudarshan Kriya came into being in 1980 in Shimoga, India when Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, now a leading humanitarian and a spiritual leader across the world, went intoa ten-day period of silence.

“I had already travelled around the world. I had taught yoga and meditation. But still I was concerned about how to help people live a happy life. I felt there was something that was lacking. Though people do their practises, their life is in compartments when they come out in life, they are very different people. So, I was thinking how we can bridge this gap-between inner silence and outer expression of life.

During a ten-day period of silence , the SudarshanKriya came like an inspiration. Nature knows what to give and when to give. After I came out of the silence, I started teaching whatever I knew and people had great experiences.”
~ Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Since then, SudarshanKriya – the powerful, rhythmic breathing technique has been the cornerstone of all Art of Living courses. The first course was taught by Sri SriRavi Shankar at Shimoga. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar has made ancient wisdom very practical to modern day and has introduced yoga, pranayamas and meditation into the daily lives of millions over the last three decades.

There is only one thing you need to do, keep cleanliness. Keep your heart clean, then your home, then your city.
First clean your heart, and don’t stop there.
Don’t do anything that will make you go to jail.
If the inner mind is clean, then the behavior is right. Then everyone becomes our friend.
If the heart is clean, then behavior is better.
If anger comes up, how to overcome that? Through Sudarshan Kriya.
If anger rises, then how to get rid of them? Do Sudarshan Kriya, pranayaam, meditation.
You do not need to fear.
Worshipping the Universal consciousness is Seva.””Seva also keeps the mind happy.
Serve the consciousness and keep your heart clean. The same thing in simpler words is called, Devotion to Lord and Devotion to Country.
Those who do a lot of Seva feel much faith in God. And those who have a lot of faith, they serve society.
The people who serve, they start having faith.
Keep your inner self clean by doing pranayam.
Distribute sweets, become sweet yourself.
Whatever you wished to do last year and couldn’t accomplish, pray that you can accomplis this year.
Pray and take sankalpa too.
Sankalpa means intention.
The things that were left incomplete last year, pray that they are completed this year.
Take a new sankalpa about what you will do and what you will not do.
