With so much adversity in the world, when people are having to endure such suffering and anxiety, is there a place for learning about spiritual discipleship? Ma Gurupriya proves to us that it is not only relevant, but indispensable in these trying times.
Ma has taken us through many layers of what makes a true disciple. In this satsang, the watchword is shraddha. Not a word that is easily translated into English, this attention or assiduous application is what defines a person. As the mind changes direction from focusing on the external world to the inner journey, so too should our shraddha. When the highest value is given to this Knowledge of the Self, we start living it. And when we are firmly seated in the Truth of our real Identity, we remain unshakable in the face of even the worst calamity.

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.
