Can the Guru assure you of liberation? || Acharya Prashant, on Nitnem Sahib (2019)

God remains present, but never obtrusive.

He lets the ego take it’s time, He lets the ego choose on it’s own.

He may send messengers, he may create conditions.

He may knock, he may show the Light.

But he would never decide on your behalf, or live your life on your behalf.

That’s the choice you have to make – how to live.

Acharya Ji, why do you appear harsh, when saints are supposed to be pleasant? (2019)

There is great beauty in a Saint’s harshness, but only if you are a little free of your ego to appreciate his Love.

When he is being harsh, he is investing himself on you.

Otherwise, why should he take all the pains?

Why should he spend time and energy in even scolding you?

But the Saint’s harshness is not for those who have no appreciation for Love.

Don’t block the bridge for others || Acharya Prashant (2017)

The Atman might be mortal.

The body of the Teacher, is mortal.

The Truth might be timeless, but the Teacher, as a body, has only definite time.

He uses that time.

And that is the only proper use of anybody’s time – to move into the timeless.

That is the proper use of life, in this dualistic world – to move into that, which is beyond duality.

So, the Guru, the Teacher, spends his life, spends his time, holding the hands of others, ushering them, escorting them, into the timeless.

That is the use of his time.
