Is love a trick of physical nature? || Acharya Prashant (2017)

That, in the world, which takes you to the Truth, is worth loving, is worth maintaining a relationship with and that in the world, that takes you away from the Truth, is something that you must immediately put away.

-Excerpts from a ‘Shabd-Yoga’ session. Edited for clarity

Kids and father – the relation.

Was looking at Koham, Soham. In all ways, they rule the street. By breed, by birth, they are normal dogs, street dogs. But they have lived with Sir. Sir has fed them, raised them, personally cleaned their shit. And that shows. They are physically stronger, and more importantly, they are psychologically quite healthy.

They still chase Sir, run after his car and bike, and appear so loving.

Even dogs know the worth of time spent with Sir.

Kids and father – the relation.

Love, take me to the Heart! || Acharya Prashant (2016)

The Guru is the lover, the lover is the Guru, and there can be no distinction between the two.

This challenges our images.

The lover is imagined to be active, attractive.

A Guru is imagined to be staid, passive, wise, but hardly attractive in the worldly sense, that is.

No, these two definitions must converge, and they can converge only if both of them dissolve.
