Acharya Prashant: About changing one’s religion for love

There is no question of changing religions because there are no religions! There is only ‘religion.’ Religion has no plural. There are no multiple religions.

Religion is like Light. It removes darkness. And it has no distinction.

The light coming from different candles is always the same.

First of all, religion is not changed.

Second, Love itself is very very close to religion.

‘Love’ is another name for ‘freedom.’

Love arises out of freedom and gives freedom! 

Whenever you find that something is limiting your freedom, it cannot be Love!

‘Love is the fruit of freedom, which gives rise to more freedom!’

Only a ‘free mind’ can love! The mind of a slave cannot Love.

Acharya Prashant on Veganism: Various religions, and their view of animals

Having an intellect, does it really make man superior to animals?

Yes, of course the dog cannot read.

Yes, the dog cannot comprehend our books and our knowledge.

But if all reading and all knowledge is for the sake of peace, is for the sake of a great silence, then please tell me whether man’s intellect or knowledge are indeed able to deliver the goods?

Knowledge is limited, intellect is limited.

Knowledge always consists of objects and every object has a boundary. If the purpose of life and, if the purpose of religion is to be one with God, then the purpose of religion is to drop all that which is limited because God is unlimited.

As long as you identify with that which is limited, there is no question of unity with God.

Intellect is limited, and intellect prevents man from closeness with God.

You cannot intellectualize your way to silence.

I want to now ask what is closer to goodness and Godliness?

Man’s intellect or the simple innocence of animals?

On Jesus Christ: Lover at heart; disciple from mind

A Jesus is there to help you get rid of your incompleteness. But instead of thanking Jesus and living by his word, you choose to crucify him.

Remember the crucifixion.

Because if you forget the crucifixion, you’ll also forget your immediate reality. The immediate reality is important.

It is not of much use to talk of the ultimate or the transcendental reality.

One must know where one is standing. Where one ought to be, or where one must reach comes later. And man does not stand at the perfect spot.

Man does not stand at his home. Man is standing at a difficult place. Man is standing at an alien place, and man must know that he has alienated himself from himself, from Truth, from God.

The one who is lost must know that he is lost. If he starts believing that he is home, then he will remain forever lost.

If a Christian is one who loves Christ, I am absolutely a Christian || Acharya Prashant (2016)

Joy is for men and pleasure is for kids.

Joy is only for those who can handle it.

Joy is the pleasure that you get when your heart is being stabbed.

It is a pleasure but that kind of a pleasure, only real men can take it.

Pleasure is the pleasure of toys, pleasure is the pleasure of kids.

Joy is the pleasure of taking it on your chest.

Joy is the biggest pleasure.
