not just make it a onetime event




Q: People from many countries are very inspired by what happened at The World Cultural Festival and want to move that spirit forward in their own country, and in their own communities. What can we do to not just make it a onetime event, but really move it forward, all around the world.

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: Yes, first of all, create a buzz, tell everybody what it was, how it was and how it is possible. The very concept of so many different people from so many different cultures coming together on one stage itself is a great thing, and not having one incident, but just a smooth flow of events is another miracle. So you can talk about it!
One of our teachers has written an article on how everything was so baffling at The World Culture Festival. We will post that for everyone to read. Everything was baffling, the stage was baffling. How 30 dance forms were combined into one cosmic dance without any practice was so baffling. If you talk to any big artist, they think it is an impossible task. It is a miracle how it was all done virtually with just one day’s practice.
Also, all the Indian classical traditional dancers getting into the rhythm and performing with perfection is again another miracle. There are many such things. People can get astonished by this and every astonishment leads to yoga; it leads you one step further.
There is not one method or just one way, you can all think about the many ways of creating a buzz. Write articles, put it in mails with pictures and all that. It was one place where people forgot their political identity. We had democrats, republicans, labour party, conservative party come on to one stage. BJP and AAP came onto one stage.
