20+ Sri Sri Quotes On Smile

As you all know Gurudev Sri Sri Ravishankar is an Indian spiritual guru, founder of Art of Living Foundation and a great humanitarian and an ambassador of peace. I had the opportunity to attend one of  Sri Sri’s Satsang and meditation camps held at Colva beach in Goa, many years ago. 

His serene countenance, ever-smiling face and  his deep as well as witty replies to many spiritual queries posed by the audience impressed me a lot.

I was going through a mild depression at that time. His wisdom filled words, motivational quotes and his brief guided meditations syncing with the sound of the waves at sea calmed and relaxed me and I almost forgot all my woes at that moment.

Downing several cups of caffeinated beverages such as tea and coffee can affect the texture of your lips and cause it to pigment.

Why should we not cut nails at night?

Back in my childhood, I remember my grandmother always reprimanding me not to cut nails at night. Also she strictly mandated to avoid cutting nails after dusk, especially after 6 PM. She always mentioned that it’s inauspicious to cut nails at night and that it invites bad luck!

Not only at night, she also forbade me from cutting nails on Saturdays and the day of the week I was born! Also strictly, no cutting of nails inside the house!

So why should we not cut nails at night? Is there any scientific reason for it?
