No descriptions or sequences really apply to the Truth || Acharya Prashant, on Raman Maharshi (2019)

The True lover of Truth has to be an unrelenting skeptic.

He has to be uncompromisingly ruthless.

What is it that he must be skeptical of?

Everything, everything that comes from him.

That’s the one trait that characterizes the true seeker – a total absence of confidence.

He keeps asking, probing, and never concludes.

He never stops at something.

He never ends.

Who is the thief? What is it to cut off his hands? || Acharya Prashant,on Guru Granth Sahib(2019)

So when you create a worldly God, then the fate of that worldly God is the same as all things worldly.

What is the fate of all things worldly?

They are destroyed by time.

Similarly your worldly God is also destroyed by time.

That is the punishment of those who do not know the one Truth, the one Reality, the one God.

They create fake images of God, and those images only bring them dissatisfaction and dishonour.

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.

Man is the new god, and he’s loving it || Acharya Prashant (2019)

Today’s Religion, today’s Teacher has to talk purely of the inner reason.

And that inner reason will remain always, always valid.

That inner reason is consciousness itself.

Consciousness itself is a great desperation.

Consciousness itself is a crying need.

Consciousness itself is a longing, a desperation.

A squirming wail.

So the only reason today to go to Truth, or God, or Peace, is the agitation of the mind.
