Explanations don’t help in the real sense || Acharya Prashant on, Jiddu Krishnamurti (2018)

Unknown cannot be understood in the plane of the unknown itself.

To understand the unknown, you have to take it to the plane of the known at least.

The Real Teacher does not offer you explanations in the same plane.

In the known plane, in our personal mental plane, we anyway have lot of explanations.

The Teacher is needed not to explain the question, but to carry the question to some other level, some other dimension.

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.
