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.

The sadness in seeing others suffer || Acharya Prashant (2019)

The attitude that you have towards others is bound to be similar to the attitude that you have towards yourself.

If the botherings, if the sufferings of others bother you, then you would become more sensitive to your own suffering as well.

And that’s a good news.

The one who cannot see others enslaved, is obviously not going to tolerate her own enslavement.

That’s good news.

There is bound to be an uprising.
