This talk (02 March 2023) of a 6 Day series was part of Jamshedpur Jnana Yajna 2023 held at Centre For Inner Resources Development, Jamshedpur, India.

In this Global Satsang, the discussion revolves around intensifying spiritual growth and understanding the nature of the mind, intelligence, and the self. Swamiji emphasizes that spiritual growth involves removing the mental coverings (Avarana) and this is achieved through a mento-intellectual process.

The exposure to spiritual teachings and the wisdom found in ancient texts like the Bhagavad Gita, is very important for a seeker. Learning from the scriptures, imbibing values, and applying knowledge in life are crucial for spiritual growth. The mind and intelligence are enlightened and expanded by right exposure.

Krishna exposed the Upanishadic teachings to Arjuna in the battlefield. The Bhagavad Gita teachings are meant to be applied in every facet of life. Bhagavad Gita emphasizes that one is born in the world to experience everything. No situation should unsettle and destabilize a seeker.

Kathopanishad says that in the perishable body, there is the imperishable Soul which enlivens and activates the body. By the fall of the body, the inner presence does not perish. This inner Self/Atma is the controller of everything in creation. It is the indweller in all beings. Whoever knows this, for him alone is peace and happiness.

Words cannot reach and explain the inner presence but by this presence the words are activated in us. This hidden indweller is all-pervading, the witness and the sentience in all. Quoting and explaining from various scriptures, Swamiji urges seekers to introspect and connect with this inner self, which is closer to us than our own mind, intelligence, and ego, which is our own real identity.
