Acharya Prashant: How to really listen to the Guru? || Acharya Prashant (2017)

You need not to burden yourself with the responsibility to listen. The speaker himself will listen to the speaker from within you.

The one who speaks does not really leave it to the listener to complete the process of listening. If the speaker has really spoken, he is also the one who is really listened.

So don’t do much.

Just relax.

From understanding do words arise.

And into understanding do these words dissolve.

You cannot contribute to this.

Before judging others, know yourself || Acharya Prashant (2016)

We judge others so that we can feel superior in comparison to them. We judge others so that our own evils appear smaller in comparison to them. Then such judgments are indeed evil.

Look at the lives of the Saints and the Prophets. They have often very clearly declared the wrong to be wrong – which is in today’s parlance – a clear case of being judgmental. They were very judgmental, but they were judgmental because they were compassionate. Such judgments are alright.

Was not Christ judgmental?

Look at his utterance, and you will see several of the things that he said, if you say them, people will say that you are judging. Was not Kabir judgmental?

You get the right to judge others only after you have first judged yourself rightly, and that requires honesty.

What is the value of questions in the spiritual process? || Acharya Prashant (2016)

We question because we believe in the pattern. Hence, questioning can come to a mind that has first known the pattern. But this mind has known the pattern, but not seen the pattern to be false. So it starts feeling little uneasy when it finds the pattern broken. It questions.

There can be a mind lower than this—that has not even seen the pattern. This mind will not question. It is such a dumb mind. A mind that is not even conscious of the pattern will never raise any questions. And you would have met minds like those. They don’t question anything, whatever may keep happening they don’t find any need to question it.

Then there are those who question, those who questions believe in the pattern.

And then there are those who say, “Aah! pattern!” it may continue or it may break, how does it matter; just as a dream may continue or break.

Continuation of a dream makes it no more real than a broken dream. Then they just sit in silent; they too don’t question.

~Acharya Prashant


What you are looking for, is looking for you.
Your deepest desire, is desiring you too.
Just bow down, accept His call, and
You will be home.
For distance is imagination,
and helplessness untrue.

The right role of parents in the life of child || Acharya Prashant (2016)

To be a father or mother is not something physical, it is not about having sex, getting impregnated, bearing a baby and nursing it. It is about not only giving a body but also taking the kid to That which is beyond the body.

That’s the role of parents—to not only give the body but also then unburden the child of the body.
