Searching for the beloved? || Acharya Prashant, on Guru Kabir (2018)

So, let the one, who is really thirsty, fly over, up to the skies.

And there, he shall be really quenched.

Once, you are there, you will forget all about the earthly pleasures, and attachments.

The body will still remain on the earth, but you will remain with your Beloved.

And that’s the way of living.

Let the body belong to the earth, you stay belonging to your Beloved.

What qualities should one seek while electing a nation’s leader?

Politics are a function of the person and not vice versa.

Politics is about relationships. The President must truly relate to a large number of people. And the quality of one’s relationships comes from the quality of one’s mind.

If one is ambitious, aggressive, insecure, seeking to promote himself, then whatever be his stated policies be, he will end up exploiting everybody, just to further his personal goals and ambitions. It doesn’t matter which party he is contesting from. It doesn’t matter, what policies is he tom-tomming. If he is someone who has no compassion, if he is someone who knows no love, if he is someone who can use people to further his personal interests, then irrespective of his political affiliation, irrespective of his stated goals, he will be dangerous for both the country and the world in general.
