Questioner: This is a paradox. So far, as I think, often people suffer because they are afraid of Truth. They would rather accept any kind of suffering than to seek into their life. It demands courage.
Shri Prashant: So, in fact, you see, another paradox is that while everyone is craving for freedom, yet, he would do anything to avoid freedom.
Q: Yes. It’s the other side of the same problem.
SP: We are deeply afraid of that which we really want.
So, freedom has to be given to people against their wish.
People’s Wish has to be granted against their wish.
Nobody is going to help you in this effort. You’ll only meet resistance.
Q: On this point, all revolution is now filth. Because they try to free, make free.
SP: They try to free people using what the people wanted.
SP: You know, they did something that the people were happy to participate in. So, they are not revolutions at all, they are more of desire fulfillment exercises. And that is why they were mostly violent.

Each one of us deserves the Truth. So, we made a conscious choice: to keep our work open for all, regardless of whether they can afford to donate.
A tremendous body of our work – around 10,000 videos, 3000 articles, and more – has been made freely available to all on the internet. Just one piece of statistic to put in perspective the magnitude of our charitable work: Around a million minutes of video content is consumed daily by our viewers on YouTube alone, absolutely for free.
This would not be possible without financial contributions from our audiences, who support our work from around the world.
We have upheld our independence in the face of the disintegration of genuine spirituality – with more and more contemporary spiritual content being just disguised commercialism, consumptionism, and egoism. We refuse to belong to any lineage or tradition, we refuse to identify with any ideology or community, nor do we pander to base sentiments to gain followership or financial assistance. This enables us to freely say the truth without inhibition.
Your financial support has meant we can continue to keep bringing you the truth and the undiluted essence of the scriptures. You have supported our independence, and we are grateful.
We need your support so we can keep bringing the truth to you. Any amount contributed by you towards our noble cause is valuable.
We need your support so we can keep bringing the truth to you. Support us from as little as $5 – it only takes a minute.
