Ma lovingly narrates that her life has been one of constant introspection. How do I really progress in this path? How can I stay focused and become quiet in mind, so that realization happens? - were the burning questions in her mind. Ma mentions that she always had the sincere yearning to attain the state of unbroken peace and delight.
Quoting from her conversations with Poojya Swamiji, Ma enlightens us that Self Realization is not a sudden attainment. It slowly sets in, every moment, drop by drop, through every speech, thought and action of ours. She exhorts us to love this pursuit and consider every event, every situation in life as an occasion for spiritual practice and sadhana.
The placidity of our mind does not depend on any external factor. The truth is that God and world are not different from one another. So, everything we perceive should immediately remind us of him. We have to make our vision laden with Jnana; Knowing well that everything has come from him alone - we have to love him, worship him, with all our bhaavas.

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.
