What is the meaning of Guru? || Acharya Prashant (2016)

Guru is the realisation that, all that which is denoted by ‘Gu’ need not take control or possession of me, that, ‘ru’ is possible to co-exist along with ‘Gu’; ‘ru’ means standing still, ‘Gu’ means all the movements that you see. Guru means a great paradox where ‘Gu’ and ‘ru’ co-exist, where the periphery and the center dance with each other, where the sky and stars are one with each other. The sky has no form, no shape, doesn’t come, doesn’t go. The stars were born, the stars will go, and yet they are so one with each other – that is Guru.

On Shiva Sutra: Atman is the mother of mind; Awareness is the mother of consciousness || Acharya Prashant (2016)

The first cause of this universe is not something in the universe.

The cause of the mind does not lie in the mind itself.

Is there a difference between Shiva and Krishna? || Acharya Prashant (2016)

Question: Why Hinduism is so complex?

Acharya Prashant: (Laughingly) Hinduism is only as complex as life. And if you need to have something to guide you through life, if you need to be at least on the same level as life, if not on the higher level. Do not ask why Hinduism is complicated, ask why have our minds been dumbed down to look at only over-simplified versions of reality?
