On Jesus Christ: What is woman? What is Adultery? What is sin? || Acharya Prashant (2016)

The words of a Teacher must be listened in great attention and empathy; never take them literally. You will always otherwise misinterpret.

What is the definition of adultery?

Adultery does not mean that you are hanging out with somebody else’s wife. Adultery means that you are now taking something as a high priority and that something can never be God.

That is the real definition of adultery: To be disloyal to God.

~Acharya Prashant

On Jesus Christ and Saint Kabir: At the root of desire, you find the Ultimate desire || Acharya Prashant (2016)

Crowd means influence of others on the mind, that’s where the crowd exists.

What Jesus means is that a mind that is crowded can never enter the truth, a mind that is dominated by many can never enter the truth.

Only the mind that is devoted to one can enter the truth.

On Jesus: The real teacher cannot belong to a tradition, he belongs only to God || Acharya Prashant (2016)

In any of the Upanishads, do you even find the Rishi is saying anything about his personal life? Sometimes he does not even tell his name. Had the personal details been important then the teacher would have told them.

If the teacher is not telling them then who are we to attach importance to them or do we think that the teacher is deliberately trying to obfuscate something, keeping it a secret.

But no, we want to peep into the life of the teacher which is our normal tendency just as we want to peep into the life of our neighbor.

Anger is often just an impotent and deceptive escape || Acharya Prashant (2016)

If the president of the country humiliates you, you will not express your anger at him. But if some helpless man comes and says even a few things to you, then you will express your anger fully. Two men with guns come and slap you, and they are holding big guns. Will you show your displeasure to them?

No.

Our anger is so impotent and calculated anger. That is why, Jesus is saying, “No, such anger is not allowed.”

What is celibacy? || Acharya Prashant (2016)

For celibacy, India has a beautiful word – Brahmacharya, to operate in Brahma, to operate in Truth; to live in Truth. Do whatever you want to do; go here, go there, wander, roam, eat-drink, rise-fall, left-right, whatever you want to do, but within Truth – that is Brahmacharya – celibacy. It has nothing to do with one’s physical activities or sexual orientation.
