Money and growth will not fill your internal hollow

Acharya Prashant

Speaker: A nice question has come to us. Our friend is saying that greed is making people work. If we remove greed from people’s life, they will not grow. So he asking, ‘What is growth?’

Listener 1: Sir, I think that growth is evolution. Everybody wants to grow in life.

Speaker: Working in an office, how does it help you to get more civilized? When do we say that a person is growing? When do we say? When do we say that a person is making progress? When do we say?

You look at somebody, you look at somebody’s house and you say, “They are growing well.” When do you say that? Be honest. Because of money, simple. That is what he is saying that if we don’t have greed, how we will get money. What will you do with that money which is anyway killing you? What will you…

What is the “Real and Unreal”?

❤ Gratitude 🙂

Breath of Joy

Hi friends lets dip into our depths and interpret the quote below meaningfully. Of course there are no right or wrong answers. Feel free and share your thoughts.

The real.......

My own understanding is that what is permanent in life is ‘real’ and that which can perish is unreal. To be in a state of perpetual happiness and bliss even in tough times is to have implicit belief – in our ‘inner self’. It is our ‘inner-self’ that is permanent. Every other thing that we possess is temporary and on losing it we feel pain. Will it not be wonderful to seek our identity in our inner-selves and remain stable and in peace in all situations – good or bad?

This does not imply that we become recluses. It means if we believe our inner-selves are eternal and we become fearless. With this belief we can our lives fully and joyfully without…

Of Confidence, Falseness and the Idea of Perfection

Acharya Prashant

Speaker: The question is, “How do I know whether I am confident or overconfident? One is considered positive, the other is considered negative.” I ask you again. How can I declare a quantity ‘x’ to be positive or negative if I do not know that quantity. I must know something about it in order to understand it as ‘positive’ or ‘negative’. Do I understand what is ‘negative’ or ‘positive’?Do I understand what this confidence thing is? You will go back to your home, most of you, after few hours. When you are with your parents, let us say with your mother, sitting in a very relaxed way, do you really require confidence to speak to her? Do you really require courage to speak to her? It’s a natural, smooth, free flow. You do not require any confidence. Right? But when you have to speak in front of an audience, when…

Morphology of Truth II


Truth is traditionally defined as that which cannot not be; it is necessary by its nature; it also has to be absolute. What is relative is dependent, and hence not marked by necessity but rather by accident.

Truth cannot belong to the sphere of Being and existence; it is not something that can be said to be or not to be, to exist or not to exist. Something that exists can also be conceived of as not existing. The non-Being of something that is in Being is a logical appendix to its Being. But truth is that which whose non-Being cannot be conceived of. Thus, it cannot belong to the sphere of Being or among beings. Truth has to be beyond Being if it is truth at all. Something that is in Being does not qualify as truth.

From necessity and absoluteness it follows that truth has to be one…
