Each experience shows its own hollowness || Acharya Prashant, on Raman Maharishi (2019)

Let your experience guide you.

And that is the only use of experience.

Not that experience can give you Intelligence, but experience can be used to intelligently discount a lot of things.

Experience will not give you something special, but experience can tell you what all is not special.

That’s the only use of experience.

Experience is to be used to negate, not to affirm.

Knowledge is useful, but only to a wise user || Acharya Prashant (2018)

We must know the very root of knowledge.

We must know why man finds knowledge important.

We must know both, the usefulness and the limitations of the knowledge.

As long as you are taking yourself as lost and stranded, you need knowledge.

And when you are someone who fundamental desire has been quenched, then knowledge is no more that appealing.

You would still have knowledge, but your urge towards knowledge would not be the urge of a dying man, thirsty man towards water.

Now knowledge to you would be like a hobby.

Searching for the beloved? || Acharya Prashant, on Guru Kabir (2018)

So, let the one who is really thirsty, fly over up to the skies.

And there, he shall be really quenched.

Once, you are there, you will forget all about the earthly pleasures and attachments.

The body will still remain on the Earth, but you will remain with your Beloved.

And that’s the way of living.

Let the body belong to the Earth, you stay belonging to your Beloved.
