Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha elevates us further to revel in the unspeakable delight of Supreme Truth. We may have everything we need, yet lack contentment. Swamiji reiterates that contentment is of the mind, and although the mind is already ours, we miss contentment because we don’t live the right way. And what is the right way?
When we anchor our intelligence to the Supreme Truth – that our real identity is not the limited body, but the universal Consciousness - our entire personality becomes an integrated one. With senses interacting with objects under the correct guidance of mind and intelligence, we find ourselves sporting joyfully in the world. This is the outcome of the Knowledge delivered by our Spiritual Masters – the mind sheds all traces of heaviness, and courses through every situation in life feeling light, poised and stable.
Poojya Swamiji will be taking Bhagavad Gita Verse by Verse in this Satsang (Saturdays). Swamiji is now discussing the second chapter of the Bhagavad Gita.

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.
