Is the world just an illusion? || Acharya Prashant (2018)

Your constitution is such that you will receive only knowledge, though a True Teacher can give you something disguised behind knowledge.

When the True Teacher speaks then you keep thinking that you are receiving merely words.

But something else has also been silently, surreptitiously been communicated to you without your consent, without your consciousness.

Knowledge is useful, but only to a wise user || Acharya Prashant (2018)

We must know the very root of knowledge.

We must know why man finds knowledge important.

We must know both, the usefulness and the limitations of the knowledge.

As long as you are taking yourself as lost and stranded, you need knowledge.

And when you are someone who fundamental desire has been quenched, then knowledge is no more that appealing.

You would still have knowledge, but your urge towards knowledge would not be the urge of a dying man, thirsty man towards water.

Now knowledge to you would be like a hobby.

Why doesn’t the current education system create a Vivekananda? || Acharya Prashant (2019)

Do we understand both our fact, and our possibility?

And is not education the movement from our somber fact, to our splendid possibility?

Must that not be the very definition of our education – a movement from the sordid, primitive fact of our existence to the glorious, splendid possibility of a liberated human being?

Education is what must connect these two.

The pitfalls in the practice of mindfulness || Acharya Prashant (2019)

So if there is something that really benefits you with insight, then be mindful of it, then allow it entry into your consciousness.

Otherwise, just being conscious of every little, trivial thing and object that is in you, around you, will leave you nowhere.

There you actually have to be dismissive, regardless, oblivious.

Contemptuously oblivious!

Brain and Intelligence || Acharya Prashant (2012)

Intelligence operates only in attention.

You could put it this way, the fruit of intelligence is understanding, and the environment in which intelligence can function is called attention. 

Knowledge is the recollection of the past.

There can be Knowledge without conditioning. Because the knowledge is the memory of an experience, whereas conditioning is permanent deformation that is caused in the brain due to an experience.

~ Acharya Prashant
