No descriptions or sequences really apply to the Truth || Acharya Prashant, on Raman Maharshi (2019)

The True lover of Truth has to be an unrelenting skeptic.

He has to be uncompromisingly ruthless.

What is it that he must be skeptical of?

Everything, everything that comes from him.

That’s the one trait that characterizes the true seeker – a total absence of confidence.

He keeps asking, probing, and never concludes.

He never stops at something.

He never ends.

What is a silent mind? || Acharya Prashant, on Raman Maharshi (2017)

A Silent mind is the one, that is not under any internal pressure, any internal compulsion to react to what comes to it.

Stuff keeps coming to it, the mind watches the stuff that comes to it.

The mind does not feel a necessity to react, or engage, or be attached, or be identified, or do anything with miscellaneous stuff that comes to it.
