The picture of a true disciple continues to become more vibrant and alive as Ma Gurupriya discusses the fundamental quality of vairagya (dispassion). Without dispassion, receiving this Knowledge is like having “milk poured into a vessel made of dog’s skin”. Whatever we learn from these Satsangs is of no use unless we make sincere efforts to look into ourselves, find out what virtues we lack and which traits get us in trouble, then do whatever is necessary to improve ourselves.
We constantly seek gratification from the objective world. All worldly gains, whether tangible like loved ones or material wealth, or subtle like appreciation and consideration, are flimsy and cannot be relied upon for permanent happiness. We have to free ourselves of our delusion with the sword of dispassion. Only then can we progress towards the abode of eternal peace and fearlessness, guided by our loving Spiritual Masters.

Narayanashrama Tapovanam, an Ashram located in Thrissur, Kerala, embodies the unique tradition of Guru-shishya Parampara, disseminating Brahmavidya (Science of Self-knowledge) through regular classes, satsangs, and above all, through learning in the association of a realized spiritual master.
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.
