Time to give Vidya it’s due

Let’s give Vidya its due.

Let’s invest more of our attention, time and resources towards spiritual learning.

Let the study of the highest philosophies like Vedanta be institutionalised, let the beautiful songs of the saints enter mainstream culture, let the young and old alike discover the higher dimension of life.

That alone can save us, and that alone would be a real celebration of Basant Panchami.

Acharya Prashant – Spiritual Teacher Rooted in Advaita Vedanta and Ancient Wisdom Traditions of the World

His work is founded on Compassion, and expresses itself as demolition of fallacies, particularly with regard to what might be widely accepted as truth.

In a classical sense he is an orthodox spiritual teacher, in the contemporary sense he is a veganism promoter, an environmental activist, a science advocate, a superstition skeptic and a campaigner for essential human freedom.

Women in revealing dresses: liberation, or titillation? || Acharya Prashant (2020)

Had you had any kind of a little spiritual education, you would have known the fact of the body.

Had you paid even a few visits to a crematorium, you would have known what bones, skin, blood and all the visual beauty is really about.

You just need to see the intestines popping out of the stomach of a burning body, and you would lose all fascination for bellies and belly buttons.
 

Yoga in Bhagawad Gita

Yoga is needed only when a man experiences contradictory forces.

When a mind feels that it is divided between various segments of influence, and the segments are contradicting and competing with each other; then that which brings peace and resolution to the mind, is called Yoga.

Yoga, hence is the only thing relevant to anybody who is mired in strife, tension, indecision, attachment, grief, memories.
