In 1993 Rishi was looking for the purpose of life and "Why this amazing creator has created us." He was questioning the structure of life and the conditioning given to us from society. Because of his curiosity his search led him to many spiritual leaders. He went to see Sri Sri Ravi Shankar who was teaching a breathing technique that inspired Rishi. But it was Sri Sri's words in addressing 3000 people that pierced Rishi's heart and gave him the answer he was seeking. Rishi saw, "The huge responsibilty he (Sri Sri) was taking. His Holiness said he wanted to put a smile on everyone's face. It opened my heart." Rishi decided that he too wanted to make everyone happy.

"The next three to seven years are a time of transformation, I feel. There will be some destruction. When an old building is yet to be dismantled and the new building is yet to be completed there is some discomfort and challenge. I feel in a little while all this will lift up, just like before dawn. The first ray of sun. Take care of your mind. Instead of the outer world of people and things, pay attention to the inner world, thoughts and memories. Withdraw your mind from the outer world. Keep peace intact. Let the outer world go through its own transformation."
