Do you know your real face and your real home?

The following is an excerpt from a samvaad (dialogue) session with Acharya Prashant.

“Your life, my friend,

is a residence far away from any other

residence and neighbors.

Your inner soul is a home far away from

other homes named after you.

If this residence is dark,

you cannot light it with your neighbor’s lamp;

If it is empty you cannot fill it

with the riches of your neighbor;

Were it in the middle of a desert, you could not move it to a

garden planted by someone else.

Your inner soul, my friend,

is surrounded with solitude and seclusion.

Were it not for this solitude and this seclusion

you would not be you and I would not be I.
