Question: Why is it so certain that ‘whatever comes will go’?
Acharya Prashant: Actually the quoted statement is an impression that whatever comes, stays for a while, and then goes away.
The fact is a little different.
Whatever comes disappears that very moment.
It will not go; it is already gone.
There is nothing in this universe which is permanent even for a millisecond or for a nanosecond. So whatever comes, changes immediately. ‘A’ changes into ‘B’. Now where is ‘A’?
We live in time, whatever we perceive—any object, event, or any relationship, the whole universe, whatever we perceive, we perceive it in time. And time means change. The moment you go from the zeroth second to the first second, something has changed. Had it not changed, you would not have been able to detect time or conceptualize time or give a meaning to time.
Time is just another name for change. So, whatever is in time, which means whatever is perceptible through the senses, whatever is worldly, whatever exists in the universe is in time. And time means change and change means disappearance.
So, whatever is, will not go away; it has already gone away.
In the moment of its appearance it simultaneously disappear.
Everything simultaneously disappears in the moment of its appearance.
Watch the session:Acharya Prashant: Why is nothing permanent? The transcription has been edited for clarity.
A journey towards understanding every aspect of fear. Is it just a biological aspect which we have no control over? Or is it a product of our social conditioning over the years? One might argue that death is inevitable and he/she doesn’t want to die. Can there be anything as faith or its just a superstition for people who can’t see clearly what’s happening.
Acharya Prashant explain each and every aspect of fear in the simplest way possible. The more one understands the futility of fear the more one is free to live. One can’t believe that there is no danger, one has to know it, be certain about it.
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.
