Why do we choose to suffer silently? || Acharya Prashant (2015)

Why must you be so inconsiderate, so rude? Why do you inflict torture upon torture on yourself; everyday? Many of you, after this session, will go back to places where you will be inflicting torture upon yourself. Don’t you know that? Can’t you change that? What is this slavery? What is this helplessness?

Your first obligation is towards yourself. All other obligation flow from there. If the first is not being met, the other obligation, obviously cannot be met. The first has to be given its proper place. The first is you.

The falseness of the so called ‘Power of Now’ || Acharya Prashant (2015)

Facts are material; facts are dualistic; facts are supplied to you by your senses. Facts might take you to the door of the Truth but, facts by themselves are not the Truth.

‘Now’ is not the present, and facts are not the Truth. To say that facts are the truth and ‘now’ is the present, is to say that material is the final reality; and if material is the ultimate Truth, then there can be no Love, Freedom or Joy because none of these are material. There can be no Love in facts. There can be no Freedom in facts.
