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.

Pleasures of consciousness vs pleasures of the body || Acharya Prashant, on Shri Nisargadatta (2019)

The pleasures of consciousness are not the pleasures of body.

The body has it’s pleasures, and consciousness has a totally different dimension of pleasure.

That which pleases the body, is not that which pleases consciousness.

But the two become one, because our consciousness is body-consciousness.

The pleasures of the body inflate the body, reinforce the body.

And the pleasures of consciousness dissolve the consciousness.

Such a  great difference.
