How to move beyond the pointlessness of existence? || Acharya Prashant (2019)

Irrespective of what life is really showing us, we want to assume, maintain, insist and think that we are right.

We want to assert that even if we are wrong, we have not gone fully wrong.

Therefore, we are never fed up of ourselves.

Therefore, we are always hopeful about the future.

And therefore we want to preserve ourselves to move into the future, and enjoy the fruits of our clever actions.

Does meditation help in liberation? || Acharya Prashant (2019)

When the enemy is knocking on the door, meditation lies in fighting, not in receding to a corner of the room closing your eyes and chanting some profound mantra.

Remember that meditation is for Liberation, meditation is not an end in itself.

Meditation that does not address and challenge the real bondages in your life, is not meditation at all.

Real Meditation is the courage to let life change.

If you keep meditating without allowing life to change, then this meditation is merely self-deception.

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.
