How often do we take life too seriously, getting bogged down by all its vagaries? Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha equips us to course through this grand journey like a child in a playground.
Any input can hit us at any point in time. We need only accept them all and do whatever is required in the best way possible, if necessary to be “externally heated while remaining internally cool”. The key is to remain Self-seated at all times, by contemplating on the imperishable Soul upon which subsists this perishable world. In this our ancient scriptures reign supreme. The words of the Wise Ones who have discovered first hand the Truth of existence are there to be cherished and imbibed.
Blessed are we to have our own Wise Teacher showering us with the rain of wisdom, clearing the sweet and joyful path towards harmony, peace and Oneness.

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.
