Seeking a good-looking partner? || Acharya Prashant (2020)

So it is not much about attracting somebody beautiful to yourself, or obtaining a beautiful mate in your life; it is more about knowing what ‘beauty’ really is.

Depending on your definition of ‘beauty’ you will choose your relationships, you will choose everything in life, because life in one way is just a search for beauty.

If the very definition of beauty is flawed, then all that you will gather, and all that you will go through, all that you will bring towards yourself will be flawed as well.

Don’t let that happen.

Time to give Vidya it’s due

Let’s give Vidya its due.

Let’s invest more of our attention, time and resources towards spiritual learning.

Let the study of the highest philosophies like Vedanta be institutionalised, let the beautiful songs of the saints enter mainstream culture, let the young and old alike discover the higher dimension of life.

That alone can save us, and that alone would be a real celebration of Basant Panchami.

Veganism is the strongest name for compassion || Acharya Prashant (2018)

Those who are violent towards other living forms are fundamentally violent towards themselves.

Do not turn vegetarian or vegan for reasons of mercy or pity, turn a vegan in your own self-interest.

You’re not killing the other, you’re killing yourself.

Don’t act as if you are doing a favor to the other by being nice.

If you are decent to the other, then it is yourself you are helping.
