The pure little boy Prahlada’s greatest fear is to be distracted from his one-pointed devotion to the Supreme by sensory enjoyments - a plight we all face every day. Ma Gurupriya lovingly hands us sublime tools from our scriptures to help us get out of this snare.
As we go about our daily lives interacting with the world and its multifarious mental imprints, the only way to avoid getting derailed from this path is Satsanga – keeping the company of the Wise. Who are these Wise Ones? They are the Knowers of Truth who have realized their Real Identity, and see with spiritual eyes the Self in everything. They are the Spiritual Masters who live and move about in this world with no desire or affectation, selflessly doing whatever is necessary. Blessed are we that they are now in our lives, helping us blossom fully and naturally.

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.
