The world is an agitation, the wise one subsides it || Acharya Prashant, on Bhagavad Gita (2020)

October 17, 2020 | Acharya Prashant

Greatness by its nature loves to remain latent and unmanifest. Greatness does not enjoy exhibition.

Exhibitionism does not sit well with Truth. Truth is quite a sleepy thing; it does not want to display itself. It just remains relaxed, sleeping, tucked away in some corner, away from the public eye.

Only when there is some great exigency, that the Truth wakes up and exhibits or manifests itself. Otherwise, the Truth loves being a non-doer. Otherwise, the Truth maintains a hands-off approach.
