Man is losing religion, and the Earth is losing forests || Acharya Prashant (2019)

Question: Acharya Ji, you often discuss that just as species are getting extinct at a very fast rate in the 21st century, and certain qualities of the being of the mind are also getting extinct – qualities like patience, care for others, compassion. Probably these are the manifestations of de-religionisation that might show up later on.

The mind of the average person does not have certain qualities that used to exist earlier.

Acharya Prashant Ji:

Deforestation of the earth, and de-religionisation of the man’s mind are proceeding hand-in-hand.

And there is a great correlation between the two.

Questioner: Just as in the former, we need to plant trees, in this we need to…….

Acharya Prashant Ji:

And both are being brought about by man’s burgeoning greed, and self-centeredness, and lust for consumption.

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)

$5.00

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