The journey to free ourselves from the constrictions of raaga-dvesha (likes and dislikes) continues with Ma Gurupriya's loving guidance. This Satsang was made even more meaningful with Ma's open sharing of her own journey and her state of mind as she went through that journey. The priceless advice she received from Poojya Swamiji through different situations, how she took to the advice and the remarkable changes that ensued as a result, all serve as indispensable guideposts for each and every one of us.
Ma gives us the reassurance that yes, we may slip and fall, but this journey is not a struggle. Rather, it is a beautiful river, replete with ups and downs but ever flowing towards the goal. Our role is to listen, be attentive to our own minds, introspect with full honesty and identify the traits that prevent us from remaining anchored within. With right effort, and the grace of our Spiritual Teachers, our inner being will slowly, gradually become pure. Only then will we be able to see clearly, with the correct inner vision, the Oneness of the entire variegated Universe which includes own own innermost thoughts and emotions.

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.
