6th October 2011
Along with Vivekananda and a number of great souls who had inspired our young generation, I presented the life of Steve Jobs to the young audience at Akshardham temple in Delhi recently , as a great contemporary symbol of young ideal who changed the way we used to think and work.
To me Steve was always a self-realized yogi, a spiritual achiever, who controlled destiny through sheer faith in him and good karma.
I strongly feel his Stanford speech ( June 12, 2005 ), where he spoke on death and on his life must form a part of our school curriculums.
It’s a small speech, yet so powerful, that to me it would form a sacred book of freedom and Mukti.
Like an ‘arrived’ yogi, he speaks about death-‘death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life.
Steve gave his best dreams to us. He showed dreams Can be realized.
Steve changed our lives with hope and happiness. In this atmosphere where social lives are trashed and ugly politics forms our timeline, if God gave us Steve Jobs it was so kind of Him.
