Question: Acharya Ji Pranaam! Once we are attached to anything, there is so much of suffering.
Please help me understand this.
Acharya Prashant Ji: End of suffering is just an idea for us. Let’s rather talk about suffering – that is a fact, that is our daily experience. The questioner is quoting me from somewhere. The quote runs this way, “Once you are attached to nothing, that is the end of suffering.”
I am saying that the end of suffering is a mere concept. Do you know the end of suffering? Do you have any closeness or any familiarity with it? So don’t talk about the ‘end of suffering’, talk only about ‘suffering’.
