Bang On the Door by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
“BANG on the Door”, as the name suggests is actually a bang on the door to your trapped inner soul! A Bang so loud, yet so soft and loving that you can’t help opening up to welcome all that the book has to offer.
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, known for his compassion and wisdom, delivers the most complex and deep knowledge with an amazing simplicity and wit. The book is a collection of short talks by Sri Sri during his tour to the United States in 1989-1990.
As I started on this journey with a gentle knock by Sri Sri, I realized how the profound knowledge in the book strikes a chord not only in a spiritual seeker like myself, but also resonates with everyone looking for freedom from self created bondages. The truth in its purest form reflected in each word and no attempt is needed to read between the lines.
“BANG on the Door” decodes the fine intricacies of the interplay of religion and spirituality we face in daily life. It takes you through the emotional roller coaster, prompts you to question and then answer your own mind. Gently flowing from Love, to intelligence, to innocence..it takes you through the dilemmas you could have faced through various stages of your life. It rids you of the complexities of the outer world that have kept you away from yourself- from your home.
Fear, Dispassion, Rejection, Acceptance; Bang on the door proved to be an encyclopedia to silent the turmoil my mind was going through. It brought me back to my tiny humble abode; my soul! For its size, the book is an ocean of wisdom locked in your palms. I simply had to peep in, and it has possessed me face on to stay with me thereafter. Each time I lose the moment, I know where to go back to seize it again.
For all those who are thinking of knocking on the door to your soul, may the force be with you friends! The loud noises outside need to be shut with a Bang! And this book can be your Game changer!
Quoting what Sri Sri says in the book, “You are locked out of your own house. Bang on your inner Door. Right now you are on the doorsteps. Do not delay a moment. All wealth is within you. When your inner door opens, there is Love, just Love…..don’t move an inch’.”
