What is Meditation? || Acharya Prashant, on Vivekachudamani (2018)

Meditation is when you want the highest alone. Meditation is when you are fed-up of looking at the small. Meditation is when you look at the small and you say that ‘If this is all that I can look at, then it cannot be small. It has to be very-very large’.

Meditation is when nothing but the Truth is therefore the object you aim at.

‘I want the Truth’.

You can say, then your sole focus is the Truth. But the Truth, as we know Rohintan is not something to be thought of; because one is too small to think of the Truth. Therefore, if one stubbornly insists that nothing but the Truth is to be known, then either one fails, or one bursts.

What is Sin? || Acharya Prashant, on Vivekachudamani and Bible (2018)

You have mentioned Christ. Because, he does not value limitations, therefore, he calls himself as the son of God. And because he does not value the limitations, therefore, he is prepared to give up the limited body so that the limitations of others can be removed.

Compassion.

This body is anyway limited, who can attach too much value to it, that’s what Christ say. So, if this limited body, is done away with, in the service of the Unlimited, it’s a good deal. I take the deal. I lose my body, others lose their limitations. I sacrifice my body and looking at this sacrifice, if others can sacrifice their limitations, then I would joyfully sacrifice this body because, what I am sacrificing is little, and what they are getting is Immense.

So, it’s a good deal. I take the deal.

You get, what the sin is?
