Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha broaches a very important aspect of any seeker’s life in this Satsang – progressing from religious practices to wholesome spiritual pursuit.
The focus of this session is largely on our intelligence. Having completed the Sankhya portion of Bhagavad Gita, Swamiji embarks on the Karma yoga portion, emphasizing that Karma yoga only takes place when the yoga enrichment of the intelligence is there.
Ultimately the crucial point is that we must be one-pointed in this path. Rituals which are largely desire-driven only make our mind divergent. The only way forward, therefore, is to have a resolute intelligence, and cultivate the right discrimination, allowing ourselves to lead a beautiful and blessed life of equanimity.

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.
