Swami Nirviseshananda Tirtha tackles pertinent questions on religion and the mind, in a fully rational and scientific manner, to take us to the fundamental Truth. Whatever religious model we subscribe to, the point is to work back from that model by going inward, back to the Source of everything, the Soul.
Vedanta speaks of nothing that is not experiential. Religious models have a crucial role in society, but we must always remember that no rituals or external practices will take us to the Supreme Truth of our real identity unless we look inward. Just as the rope remains unchanged even when we think it is a snake, so it is with Consciousness upon which we perceive all of creation. And when, with the selfless guidance of our Spiritual Masters, we understand that this unchanging Consciousness is who we really are, we remain stable and fearless in every situation.

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.
