Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha moulds our intelligence in this satsang, making it more beautiful, penetrating and discriminatory. From Arjuna’s enquiry to Krishna at the beginning of the Gita, Swamiji helps us ascend the divine spiritual trail, guided by the words of Sage Vasistha to Sri Rama in Yogavasistha Ramayana.
Swamiji explains the 7 rungs of the “Spiritual Ladder”, reassuring us that as sincere listeners we already have climbed the first 2 – enquiry and truthful introspection. Our effort now is to cross the third step – thinning of mind through dropping of desires. Once we have passed these three stages, the remaining four take us into realization of this Knowledge, where we feel the inner presence knowing we are not the body, develop detachment from objects of the world, realize that these objects are nothing but mental imprints, and finally be free from all grief, fear and suffering.
All of us have come knowing that there is something more to be known. We are indeed blessed to be able to sit at the feet of these Great Spiritual Masters to learn whatever is auspicious.

Those days, there were many rats staying in various pockets of the tiled roof. My room had a very low ceiling and I could even touch the roof tiles. At night, I would see big, big rats running around just near me.
I got back to my daily chores, but the scene remained in my mind – the old man’s wrinkled face, his gleaming eyes, the contentment he enjoyed, his refusal to accept more than ‘his minimum needs’! How many of us can take such a stand?
Bhakti is not so much in the worship with flowers, garlands, lamps or incense sticks. Neither it is in chanting His names and praises. It is verily in living and acting according to the wish of the Lord, pleasing Him, imbibing qualities and attitudes that He wants us to imbibe.
