How do we get liberated from the jaws of death? Does ‘death’ really mean the death of the body – No, it means transcending the cause-and effect chain and worldliness associated with causality.
Nutan Swamiji, in his inimitable way teaches us to walk on the path synonymous with a “razor's edge”. Taking pertinent verses from Kathopanishad and Kenopanishad, Swamiji elaborates the qualities of the ‘self’ by explaining that the ‘self’ transcends sense perceptions, time, space and even the cosmic intelligence. How do we tread this seemingly difficult path - By cultivating inner purity of mind and intelligence, simplicity, straightforwardness and a genuine love for the ultimate truth.
Swamiji gently but persistently coaxes us to get over our preference and prejudice to focus our attention on the Self. May we be reminded and guided by what Swamiji vehemently proclaims - “It is the deepest desires of our own mind which take us to our ultimate goal”.
Kathopanishad 1.3.14, 1.3.15, 1.3.16, 1.3.17
Kenopaniṣad 1.3, 1.4, 1.5, 1.6, 1.7, 1.8, 1.9

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.
