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.
 

Pleasures of consciousness vs pleasures of the body || Acharya Prashant, on Shri Nisargadatta (2019)

The pleasures of consciousness are not the pleasures of body.

The body has it’s pleasures, and consciousness has a totally different dimension of pleasure.

That which pleases the body, is not that which pleases consciousness.

But the two become one, because our consciousness is body-consciousness.

The pleasures of the body inflate the body, reinforce the body.

And the pleasures of consciousness dissolve the consciousness.

Such a  great difference.
