It is desires that are born as a child || Acharya Prashant (2016)

The child is already born with physical desires—he eats, he sleeps, he wants comfort, food, milk, nourishment. He is already physically conditioned and the mother makes the child socially conditioned as well by giving him a name, a religion, a belief, education, relationships, name of a father, and the rest of it.

Now, is that love?

What would be a truly loving relationship between a mother and a child? You need to figure that out, especially, if you are a mother or would be a mother.

On Krishnamurti and Osho: You cannot reject the world while holding on to yourself || Acharya Prashant (2016)

When Krishnamurti said there is no authority, he does not said you are the authority.

He said nobody can be an authority including you.

So then only Truth is the authority.

When the world is not an authority, when you are not an authority then nothing is an authority. Then that which is nothing and hence the Truth is the authority.

Only the ego wants to correct mistakes. The fundamental mistake is ego itself. || Acharya Prashant (2015)

You will never own up your mistakes. You will be brought to a point where you will have no option but to see that you have been an idiot. You will be left option-less.

Till the time you have an option, you will exercise it. Till the time you have an option, you will only choose the ego because only the ego has options. What else will you choose?

Willingly, it is never going to happen. Never, ever! And those for whom it is happening willingly, it is not really happening. If it is happening willingly for you, then it is not really happening. Then it means that it is a part of your internal conspiracy.

What is sin and what is repentance? || Acharya Prashant (2015)

Concept of sin has a very central place in Christianity. The Bible repeatedly refers to it. And it is supposed to be a pious Christian’s duty to repent for the sins. This repentance is interpreted in several ways, and there are several ways in which it is advised that the atonement can take place. But obviously, any question of repentance is meaningless, without first understanding, what the sin is? Otherwise, there is the absurd situation of a man trying to correct a mistake, without knowing at all what the mistake is?
