Bipolar disorder and other mental issues || Acharya Prashant, at Kedarnath (2019)

Is there an end to the bipolarity that the mind lives in, without going into the One that is not polar at all?

The world is full of poles and dualities, the mind lives in dualities.

And all that is just too much upon the mind.

Won’t it be good to venture into the non-dual?

Won’t it be good to understand what this duality is really all about?

What is a silent mind? || Acharya Prashant, on Raman Maharshi (2017)

A Silent mind is the one, that is not under any internal pressure, any internal compulsion to react to what comes to it.

Stuff keeps coming to it, the mind watches the stuff that comes to it.

The mind does not feel a necessity to react, or engage, or be attached, or be identified, or do anything with miscellaneous stuff that comes to it.

Who is the thief? What is it to cut off his hands? || Acharya Prashant,on Guru Granth Sahib(2019)

So when you create a worldly God, then the fate of that worldly God is the same as all things worldly.

What is the fate of all things worldly?

They are destroyed by time.

Similarly your worldly God is also destroyed by time.

That is the punishment of those who do not know the one Truth, the one Reality, the one God.

They create fake images of God, and those images only bring them dissatisfaction and dishonour.

Without the right thing, the mind will wander out || Acharya Prashant, on ‘The Fountainhead’ (2019)

The present is not merely engagement in some activities that you are currently doing.

The present refers to the One center that you must always have.

Being in the present does not mean being concentrated on whatever rubbish you might have undertaken. That is not called ‘being in the present’

‘Being in the present’ means being centered in the Truth, being centered in the One thing.

If you are centered in that One thing, how will rubbish come to you?

You are occupied.

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.
