The effect of spirituality on married life || Acharya Prashant (2019)

If the two persons who are in this social arrangement of marriage are also spiritual friends, then they rise above social arrangement.

The social arrangement by itself is a recipe for disaster.

But when the social arrangement is purified, consecrated by the spiritual touch, then the poison in it is neutralised.

In fact, there is only one antidote to the poison called ‘marriage’, and that is spiritual association between the man and the woman.

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.

Satsang, Companionship, Interpretation and Understanding || Acharya Prashant (2016)

“Words are only excuses to hand the Silence upon.” It’s like inviting your girlfriend for coffee. The coffee, what is the worth of coffee? But we all know what coffee means. But you never say that. Somehow it happens that you need the pretext of coffee.

It’s the same thing, me calling you for the camp. What camp? These tents? How do they matter?
