Cross the river and burn the bridges

Question: What do I do to cross the river? To me, it is such a challenge.
Acharya Prashant:  Crossing the river is easy. Just hold the hand of someone who knows the other side, and cross.
You have already crossed the river a thousand times with me.
Your failure is elsewhere: You are not burning the bridges.
Cross the river and burn the bridges.
If you do not burn the bridge, rest assured, you will use that bridge.
You have left too many unburnt bridges in your life. That is why you cross, and still, do not cross. You succeed, and yet remain failed.
Unless you have burnt down your options, the options will not let you live the Truth.
Merely crossing over is not sufficient. Do not cross over like a tourist, cross over like a native.
Anybody who wants to distract and confuse you will keep giving you options. Know your enemy by this sign: He puts choices in your head. If options are there, they will be used one day.
Have you burnt the damn bridge?

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.

Donate via PayPal:

(In multiples of $5)


Or, you can donate an amount of your choice directly at our website.
