For many, the word dispassion carries connotations of rejecting the world, of becoming disconnected, of turning cold. Ma Gurupriya not only assures us that it is not so, but shows us by being a living example of wholesome dispassion, how much more inclusive, connected and loving it makes us.
The pursuit for us is to grow in vairagya. Slowly we see that our own body, mind and intelligence – and all the associated thoughts, ideas and habits – are as changeful as everything else in the objective world. The only changeless factor is the Supreme Lord, our real Self. As we drop our attachments to all that is transitory, and anchor ourselves firmly to the imperishable Soul, the cool breeze of dispassion gently soothes the mind, making it light, refreshed and free. With our beloved Spiritual Masters guiding us every step of the way, the entire ocean of the world becomes but “a little bit of water contained in the hoof mark of a calf”.

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.
