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.

Your relationships tell about your inner mechanism || Acharya Prashant (2019)

There is no self-observation possible without looking into relationships.

In fact, the whole thing of self-observation is the thing of relationships.

How else will you observe the self?

How else will you observe yourself?

You do not exist independent of others.

So whenever you will have to observe yourself, you will have look at your connection with others.

The effect of spirituality on married life || Acharya Prashant (2019)

If the two persons who are in this social arrangement of marriage are also spiritual friends, then they rise above social arrangement.

The social arrangement by itself is a recipe for disaster.

But when the social arrangement is purified, consecrated by the spiritual touch, then the poison in it is neutralised.

In fact, there is only one antidote to the poison called ‘marriage’, and that is spiritual association between the man and the woman.

When does one find the final spiritual teacher? || Acharya Prashant (2018)

This is the mistake that you are making.

You are continuing to have a ‘subject-object’ relationship with the Teacher.

And if you want to remain an ‘object’, it is imperative for you that the Teacher remains a ‘subject’.

And where there is an ‘object’ and there is a ‘subject’, there would always be a distance.

The ‘subject’ and the ‘object’ cannot be one.

They determine each other, they work upon each other, they play with each other, still they maintain a distance between them.

The subject, the object and the distance, all go together.

And as long as there is the distance, how can there be dissolution?
