The Source is one with the material and the movement || Acharya Prashant (2016)

You chase God when you think that God is somewhere else. The saint is the one who has stopped chasing God. The general perception is that the saint is the one who is chasing God. No. We are the ones who are chasing God and, where do we chase God? In expectations of the beyond. There has to be something ahead of this.

Rishikesh of Shiva must stand for dissolution, not continuation in another name || Acharya Prashant (2016)

Rishikesh is the city of Shiva, it is the city of ending. This Ganga, symbolically it arises from the forehead of Shiva. There are so many other cities for beginning, for commencing; come here to stop. Rishikesh must not become another beginning. We have so many beginnings, don’t we? You meet a new book, it’s a beginning, a new woman, it’s a new beginning, you watch a new movie and it’s a new beginning; so many beginnings. Things must end somewhere. So, no better place to end than Rishikesh. You have been through Brahma and Vishnu, now it’s your time to meet Shiva. Which is alright, because only after having gone through the various Gods and Goddesses, you ultimately come to Shiva. Rishikesh remains meaningless, if you meet this Goddess, that Swami, that Guru and you don’t meet Shiva. Shiva is annihilation, it’s a full stop and every full stop is a ground for infinite Universes.

This Ganga is symbolically a representation, not of flow, but of stillness- comes from nowhere. It only means that it comes from ‘stillness’, from nowhere. Nowhere means, ceasing, stopping.

What is the Self and the non-self? || Acharya Prashant (2016)

Does listening happen when one is deeply asleep? Does listening happen even when one is full of other thoughts? If that which is temporary could hear, then the body would have heard even when it is deep asleep.

Surely the one who listens is not the temporary one. If the temporary one would listen, it would only listen to something which is temporary. Words are temporary, words come and go. Words are vulnerable to interpretation. So the one, which is temporary, which is the body, which is the brain and the mind, can surely hear. But what would it hear? It can only hear that which is temporary, and hence useless.

If you are really listening, then you are not listening with the ears. The ears are temporary. If you are really listening, then you are not listening to this body, because this body is ephemeral. But if you are listening through your ears to this body, they you are not listening at all. Then all that is happening is the accumulation of knowledge and information. And all knowledge and information is so very temporary, so time dependent, in fact knowledge itself is a product of time.
