It is beautiful to earn pain || Acharya Prashant, on Guru Granth Sahib (2019)

So all discipline is nothing but pain.

It’s very well-directed pain, it’s very discrete pain.

But nevertheless, all discipline involves pain.

And progress, be it in the material, or in the spiritual realms, moves on discipline.

So all progress is nothing but the art of inflicting pain’upon yourself – wisely, not randomly.
