It is beautiful to earn pain || Acharya Prashant, on Guru Granth Sahib (2019)

So all ‘discipline’ is nothing but ‘pain’.

It’s very well-directed pain, it’s very discrete pain.

But nevertheless, all ‘discipline’ involves – ‘pain’.

And ‘progress’, be it in the material, or in the spiritual realms, moves on ‘discipline’.

So all ‘progress’ is nothing but the art of inflicting ‘pain’ upon yourself – wisely, not randomly.

If God is nameless, how to continuously recite His name? || Acharya Prashant (2019)

If at all you are obsessed with names, you better be obsessed with the name of the ‘Lord’, because the name of the ‘Lord’ has a special quality.

It dissolves all other names that you are fond of, so fixated with.

And having dissolved all other names, the name of the ‘Lord’ too disappears.

It’s a cleansing agent.

It just sanitizes, and doesn’t stay back.

The Great Magic of Scriptures || Acharya Prashant, on Nitnem Sahib (2019)

Those who love the Truth, their world becomes truthful.

Everything in their world, gets arranged to serve the Truth.

It comes from the Truth, it serves the Truth.

It serves the Truth, so more comes from the Truth.

More comes from the Truth, there is more to serve the Truth.

The Truth is served even more, there is even more that comes from Truth. 

Who is Kabir?

The heart of Sufism and the heart of Vedanta, the heart of Hasidism, the heart of Krishna mysticism, they are all one Heart.

So, it would anyway be unwise to call anybody, any realized one, as belonging to any sect.

You see, Kabir can’t be called a Hindu or a Muslim. Some people substitute it with calling him both a Hindu and a Muslim. I call him neither a Hindu or a Muslim. Krishna cannot be called a Hindu. Jesus was even by fact not a Christian and he can’t even be called a Jew.
