Zen is the final flowering of all religious ascension

Zen is the final flowering of all religious ascension. Religion and spirituality keep rising and rising. And its final flowering is the silence of Zen. Zen is what the Upanishads came at, the Buddha hinted at. From all of that, what you finally get is Zen. If by any chance you come across a form of Zen that is very ritual-oriented or practice-centric, then you can reject that as not being Zen. Then, you can simply say that practitioner does not know Zen and is misinterpreting.

Artificial intelligence and Real intelligence

Creativity is causeless and beyond reason. Creativity is not a product of the usual processes of the mind. Creativity requires freedom and faith, neither of which are possible to a system put together by the mind. Hence, the right and ineluctable place of human beings will on the high peaks of creativity.

What is celibacy?

For celibacy, India has a beautiful word – Brahmacharya, to operate in Brahma, to operate in Truth; to live in Truth. Do whatever you want to do; go here, go there, wander, roam, eat-drink, rise-fall, left-right, whatever you want to do, but within Truth – that is Brahmacharya – celibacy. It has nothing to do with one’s physical activities or sexual orientation.

To fight the smallness around, I will now have to fight the big names

The only way you can check Truth is by being in the Truth.

If I am a man of Truth and somebody is bullshitting in front of me, I will figure him out.
But if I am myself totally debauched from Truth, then you can come and say anything.

You can say, “There is a heaven which is full of fairies and this and that.”
And because I don’t know, so I have no way of saying that you are lying.

To declare something as false, first of all you must be in the Truth.

No action in continuation of restlessness will take you to rest || Acharya Prashant (2015)

Resistance is nothing, resistance is false.
Restlessness is false, desire is false.
And what does it mean for something to be false?
That it is actually nothing. That is what ‘falseness’ means.

So, desire, or illusion, or resistance, they are anyway nothing.
How can something which is ‘nothing’, attack you on its own?
The thing itself is so powerless and helpless, it has no life.
How can it invade your mind?

It does not invade your mind, your mind beckons it. You call for it –
“Come, come, come, resistance come!”
