Mortality is something we are faced with more and more as the pandemic continues its brutal assault. Swami Nirviseshananda Tirtha handles this delicate subject with compassion, using shlokas from Kathopanishad – most aptly a dialogue between 7 year-old Nachiketas with the Lord of Death - while shedding new light on chapter 10 of Bhagavad Gita. This is a Satsang that provides not only comfort, but more importantly strength and empowerment.
All of creation is nothing but an appearance in Consciousness. Everything in Nature moves out of fear of Brahman, who is none other than our real, immortal Self. Even the most painful circumstances in life, and the most virulent virus, are manifestations of this Self. What then, is there to be afraid of?
Even death is not to be feared but embraced, says Swamiji, as it too is only doing its duty. Blessed are we to be able to move forward on this journey with courage and confidence, lovingly guided by our benevolent Wise Ones.
Swamiji will be discussing 'Voice of Upanishads'. The Global Satsang will be based on Kathopanishad and Mundakopanishad. | Live Satsangs with Spiritual Masters on Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday at 8 pm IST/10:30 am EDT/ 10:30 pm MST.

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.
