Love is a vast sky, it has no opposite.
It is so vast that it has space enough for hatred.
In Love, one hates as well, and that doesn’t reduce love.
Do not feel guilty. Provided your love is vast enough.
And you can have love so vast, only for Vastness.
A Vastness called Freedom.
By reasoning out
you try to remain
what you are.
All reasons are
Realise, don’t rationalize.
Having lived rightly for long, one becomes incapable of living wrongly.
Having lived rightly for long, if one even decides to live or act wrongly for a while, he will face failure in his chosen wrong action.
The reward of living rightly: failure in one’s attempts to live wrongly.
Enlightenment is a series of endless enlightenments, each one being complete and final.
Being so enamoured by the Sun,
You keep watching the moon all night!
What is the way to Liberation?
An honest acknowledgment of suffering,
Without trying to hide or colour or glorify or rationalise it,
Is the way to Liberation.
The great Intelligence that is never touched, spoiled, created or destroyed is not personal.
The person can decide to follow that impersonal Intelligence. And the person can also withdraw from the service of Intelligence.
That choice is always available and that choice is Maya.
The spiritual pursuit faces humongous obstacles. It sometimes appears the entire world is lined against you.
We all are in a big holy war.
We will definitely lose some battles.
The trick is to not to mind the defeats, and quickly get ready for the next win.
Questioner: What is the definition
Acharya Ji: Knowing what is right,
doing what is wrong.
Your interests, your welfare, don’t depend on things.
Witnessing means not seeking interest in anything. Not attaching your self-interest, self-worth, to anything. When you are not interested, you are the knower and the master.
Here, kingship comes only to the reluctant king.
She troubled him for being awake at nights, “Your eyes are full of someone beyond.”
Helpless, he kept mum.
One night a mysterious tune woke her up. Since then, she dances all night to music.
And he laughs. He has had his revenge.
Love is so foolish it knows only one revenge: Love
In the mirror, he saw many faces.
One wanted food, air, water, sleep, sex.
The second one wanted prestige, power, money, happiness.
A third one just looked on sorrowfully, sometimes at the two, sometimes at the distant horizon.
If not religion, who will teach you secularism?
Secularism is a new religion; just that it isn’t yet deeply religious enough.
The development of secularism depends on its ability to learn from religion the value of meditativeness, devotion, and surrender of ego to the Beyond.
The new, the happiness that you are looking for,
will not come through experience.
It will not come to you via time,
It is not contained in the future.
It comes when you are a little less
insistent upon cheating yourself.
You had a dream,
you came to me,
and I have not helped you
But tell me,
are you not glad
that now you are not
what you were?
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.
