If others can predict you, others will enslave you || Acharya Prashant (2015)

Desires are bad deals. To get something which is worth five rupees; you trade away something which is worth, Five Crore. To earn bread and butter, you trade away your precious life. To earn a little bit respect and acceptability, you trade away your precious youth. Never say, I have earned something in the world; earning is such an illusion. What you really have, you do not earn and with the world, whatever you get you get through trading, not through earning; it’s just barter.

Whatever you choose for yourself will be ‘poison’ || Acharya Prashant (2015)

You pick up a book. The book might be by great a master, by the so-called enlightened ones. Don’t you see that you are the one who decides which chapter to read? Don’t you see that those answers were given to somebody else? Are you sure that you asked the same question that is there in the book, you would have received the same answer? Let’s say that you are reading a book. And there is a question and an answer to that question. That is the format of the book. Are you asking that question?
