It’s been more than a decade that Acharya Prashant has been illuminating mankind with the wisdom of world’s most ancient scriptures and texts from all times and places. His discourses are being watched by millions on YouTube and every month a few blessed ones also get to learn the same wisdom in its essence directly from him in the form of an online course series called ‘Month of Awakening’.
On the third anniversary of the inception of this community, a few of its participants couldn’t resist sharing their journey with everyone. Following is a message from one of the participants of this course:
I have been on spiritual journey for more than two decades now. I was introduced to spirituality by Osho, through Osho I found out about many other spiritual masters of different time era.
In this journey at some point when I started feeling the need for a Master who is living and exists in physical form, I tried many existing famous names, attended their sessions and workshops. For some time I would feel I have made some progress and my perspective towards life has changed. But then I would start feeling miserable again and depression and pure helplessness would start raising its head.
In this disillusioned and hopelessness when I was searching through Osho’s videos on some spiritual topic, I came across a video of a simple man (Acharya Prashant) talking about – ‘what love is’ – to his students around him. I was curious how this discussion which apparently sounds like a chat could be spiritual? I decided to give a try. I realized video was far more gripping than I expected. Having watched the video I felt a new wave of life as if I found something magical which words can’t explain.
After this I started watching one after another so many Acharya Ji’s videos. More I watch more was my thirst to meet the Master would rise. I live in US and had just recently came back from vacation from India, the urge was so strong that I could not wait for my next India trip which would have been after another year. The only option I could think of was ask for emergency leave if not leave the job and go.
Then suddenly I realized there are ways I can meet the master online. MTM (Meet the Master) program and MAG (Month of Awakening) program which makes it possible to connect with Acharyaji, for all those seekers who live abroad and due to various reasons can’t travel to India. I decided to try that option and booked the MTM and MAG sessions with Acharyaji. Before the MTM session, I was asked to come up with all the personal or spiritual questions I have it written down to discuss with Acharya Ji. I almost had about 15 questions from my long spiritual journey of 20 years.
Biggest thing from the session was the shattering of myths. So many spiritual concepts which I thought I understood what they mean, after talking to Acharya ji, I realized how shallow my understanding was about those topics. First time I felt I arrived my home. This is the Master I had been searching all my life. Acharya ji not only gave me all my answers but he also gave me the clarity where I could see where I stand and decide for myself what my next step should be on this journey.
Reading scriptures on a regular basis is most central to spiritual growth. Ancient spiritual texts like the Upanishads and Gita are more relevant today than they were ever before. Today, if mankind seems to be nearing catastrophe — if climate change, social injustice, and violence have become the norm — it is because man’s mind has gone astray.
Online courses with Acharya Prashant is a unique initiative to bring scriptures to our day-to-day life and hence impart clarity and wisdom in living.
In this course, a rigorous study of a scripture or a saint is undertaken each month. The methodology of this program is to engage in an in–depth and rigorous examination of scriptures by relating them to the everyday realities of life.
Relevant sections from scriptures like Srimad Bhagavad Gita, Upanishads, Brahm Sutras, Ashtavakra Gita, etc. are studied to unpack the ancient mysteries contained in them. Sessions are conducted by Acharya Prashant himself and are streamed live to the seekers.
