Inscrutable are the ways of providence - how it mysteriously kindles the yearning for god in one's heart, then slowly shape and mould their inner personality through various events and experiences of life and finally make them inseparable from God!
Poojya Swamiji beautifully describes the life story of a great devotee Yamuna, who as a young disciple challenged and defeated a famous palace pundit to restore his Guru's glory. Having won half the kingdom as promised by the king, the young boy slowly slips into royal pomp and luxury, forgetting his spiritual moorings. But his life was not meant to be lived in royal opulence. Through unexpected turn of events, Yamuna regains his memory and dedicates the rest of his life in the service of God. He goes on to become Yamunacharya, composing many sublime slokas glorifying the devotion to God.
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.
