Coming out of the sthitaprajna state of absorption, the sthitadhi opens up to the wide world. Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha shows us what this expansive state of mind is, and how to get to it.
The hallmark of jeevanmukta is equanimity. Such a liberated one not only remains stable and even-minded towards pleasure and pain alike, but also sees the oneness in all beings with no preference or prejudice. Immersing us in beautiful scriptural verses, Swamiji shows that the Knower is like a mother to all creatures cruel and gentle, who delights in the universal Self that transcends all objective differences. For us seekers, Swamiji gives a crucial point of sadhana - to appreciate and love the virtues we see in others until they become our own. Gratitude to our benevolent spiritual masters for their tireless guidance.
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.

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.
