Question: Acharya Ji, I am a regular participant of the camps, I have attended Month of Awakening(MAG)Program. I regularly watch Satsangs broadcasted live. I read Scriptures.

How do I bring the same intensity of the camp, in my daily life?

Acharya Prashant Ji: Just be grateful for the period when the intensity sustains. Don’t feel entitled to have that intensity throughout. Your frustration is coming from your sense of entitlement. Just be grateful for it as long as it lasts.

Man has not been constructed to live in Divine Peace.

Man has been constructed to live in chaos.

That is our prakritik (natural) construction, our design.

If you are getting Peace even if for a short period of time, just be Grateful.

Don’t be so demanding.

The more will be your Gratitude, the more you will get.

By expressing dissatisfaction over what you are getting, you will turn away even the little that you are getting.

Questioner: I did not mean dissatisfaction.

Acharya Prashant Ji: Yeah, ‘wanting more’, that’s dissatisfaction.

Questioner: I want to sustain that Peace. Why can’t I?

Acharya Prashant Ji: Because you are not designed that way. Nobody is.

We are not designed to be Liberated.

We are designed to stay confined and frustrated.

If you get a whiff of fresh air, utter a huge ‘Thanks’, and that will increase your, enhance your eligibility.

You will get a little more then.

But whatsoever little you get, just be very-very Grateful for that.

Remember it often.

Questioner: I agree. I don’t feel that grateful.

Acharya Prashant Ji: You feel – “It is my birthright. So why do I need to be grateful?”

This has to be remembered: it is not our birthright.

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.
