The International Women’s Conference (IWC) brings together women leaders from various spheres of society such as politics, arts, business, media, and academia to engage in meaningful dialogue. Below is the transcript of What Sri Sri said at the Inaugural session of the last Conference held in Bangalore Ashram on 23rd Feb 2018.

What is spirituality? Is it something that is not normal or natural? No! We are made up of matter and spirit. Our body has amino acids, proteins, carbohydrates and all that. And our spirit is made up of love, compassion, and peace. All that which enhances the value of spirit is spirituality, and women need it all the more because women are the greatest influencers.
