In this Satsang, Ma Gurupriya ji shares her experience of living in Guru Sannidhi and of her own days of intense Sadhana. Taking us through beautiful verses of Sankaracharya's composition Sarva-Vedanta-Siddhanta-Sara-Sangrahah (सर्ववेदान्तसिद्धान्तसारसंग्रहः), Ma helps a seeker understand the significance of Guru Bhakti, perseverance and intensity to progress in the spiritual path.
Ma lays great stress on the importance of living in the company of a Guru, abiding by his guidance and giving him full liberty to make corrections which invariably leads to purification and expansion of one’s own mind and ego effacement.

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.
