Knowing that brain is chemical, why do I still suffer? ||Acharya Prashant, on The Fountainhead(2019)

Spirituality is not an endeavour for the brainless.

Spirituality is for the one who has gone till the last limit of the brain, explored it, tested it, and gained the fullest that could be from mental activity.

And having gained the fullest that could be from mental activity, realised that there is only so much that the brain and the mind are capable of.

And then you say, “Now, the beyond. Now, the Beyond.”

The dangerous meaning of ‘helping others’ || Acharya Prashant, on ‘The Fountainhead’ (2019)

Remember, remember, remember, and I have been saying this again, and again, and again –

That you are in bondage, and you want Liberation.

That you are in mediocrity, and you want excellence.

That you are caged, and you want to fly. 

That you are suffering, you want Joy.

That is the definition of ‘human welfare’. 

Man living godly is the only real proof of God || Acharya Prashant, on ‘The Fountainhead’ (2019)

If God has given you anything, it’s just the freedom, the power, and the responsibility to create yourself.

You are your own father, God is just the background.

God is just the canvas on which you paint yourself.

God is the brush, God is the colour, God is the canvas, but the design and the painting is yours.

If what you paint looks horrible, do not blame God.

God gave you choice.

You misused the choice, or you used it terribly well.

Both possibilities are there.
