Question: Acharya Ji, why do I slip back to my old habits even after an intense camp with you?
Acharya Prashant Ji: The momentum of your tendencies is still very strong. You will need to be careful for at least a few months, and you will need to reboot the entire system again and again.
This is your reboot camp.
Questioner: Why does this happen Acharya Ji? What is the reason?
Acharya Prashant Ji: Just come to a standstill, a total conclusion. It happens because you do not allow it to.
“Why do I do that? Why don’t I allow it to come to an end?”
(Referring to his body) Because of ‘this’. What is ‘this’?
Acharya Prashant Ji: What to do? It’s such a bad companion.
Questioner: Is it biological, or is it psychological?
Acharya Prashant Ji: Psychology riding upon Biology.
First of all the brain is hard-wired in a particular way. It’s the brain that is conditioned to seek security, pleasure, continuation. And then there are the various social influences: college, peers, media and such things. Those influences ride upon the hard wiring, and what you get is the ‘double-whammy’.
Questioner: Initially I could make decisions related to what I want, the power to choose between wrong and right. It was easier for me to make choices. But slowly…
Acharya Prashant Ji: There is confusion.
Questioner: Not confusion, but unconscious going with the flow.
Acharya Prashant Ji: That was happening. Had you been totally unconscious, you would not have been able to be even at the first camp. Had you been totally unconscious, you would not have opted for the camp in the first place.
In fact, life will become tougher for a while for you. So many things that appeared instinctively right, would now appear hazy, debatable. There would be confusion where you earlier assumed clarity.
This will happen for a while. Not for too long, for a few months may be. That’s your recuperation period.
There will be temptations.
Old habits, old environments will beckon you, but stand still and strong.
Don’t give up.
It’s a battle worth fighting and worth winning.
Don’t lose this one.
If you can win this one, then in all the forthcoming battles of life, victory is guaranteed.
Just win this one.

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.
