Nothing is right or wrong, says today's pop spirituality! || Acharya Prashant,on Bhagavad Gita(2020)

October 27, 2020 | Acharya Prashant

Questioner (Q): Today’s pop spirituality says, "There is no right and wrong." They claim that everything is fine as it is, and it is one’s way of looking that is making things seem right and wrong. However, here Shri Krishna specifically talks of knowing about right and wrong action for Sattvic intellect. What is it that pop spirituality is missing?

Acharya Prashant (AP): No, the pop spirituality isn’t missing something—it’s carrying a lot. It’s carrying a lot that it needs to drop and miss. What is it carrying? It is carrying the obligation to defend itself. Pop spirituality is carrying the responsibility to defend the ego, and that’s what makes it come up with outrageous and amusing claims and principles.
