Knowledge is useful, but only to a wise user || Acharya Prashant (2018)

We must know the very root of knowledge.

We must know why man finds knowledge important.

We must know both, the usefulness and the limitations of the knowledge.

As long as you are taking yourself as lost and stranded, you need knowledge.

And when you are someone who fundamental desire has been quenched, then knowledge is no more that appealing.

You would still have knowledge, but your urge towards knowledge would not be the urge of a dying man, thirsty man towards water.

Now knowledge to you would be like a hobby.

How to test whether your wisdom is growing? || Acharya Prashant, on Yoga Vasishta (2017)

You dis-identify so completely, that you are no more shy of talking of your old days.

You talk of yourself of the old, as if you talk of another wisdom.

That’s wisdom.

You do not hide your shortcomings. You mention your faults aloud. And mentioning your faults aloud, you do not even say that now you are perfectly free of faults.
