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?

How to deal with anger? || Acharya Prashant (2015)

Anger cannot be right in isolation. If everything else about you is wrong and petty, then anger too is bound to be wrong and petty. Do not be too bothered with the problem of anger. Do not try to look at the one fragment of mind and quarantine it. Whatever is the quality of your life that is also the quality of your anger. When life is genuine, then anger is also genuine. When life is fake, then all you have is fake anger. When life has depth, then anger too has depth. When life is shallow then anger is just as we said, poking and pinching.
