In this enriching satsang, Ma fondly tells us that as seekers, our primary duty is to fix our mind and intelligence in God. Knowing well, from our own experience that the thoughts about the world can ultimately bring us suffering alone, we must cherish the stability and unaffectedness bestowed by the anchorage in God. Seeing this whole world, including our individual identity as an expression of God or Consciousness, we must feel deeply within that - I am God's and God is mine.
The agitations of the mind like desire, anger and fear are caused by the fever of worldliness. This fever can be effectively cured only with the help of constant reflection on our real identity. Ma cautions us that this effort of repeated listening, reading and ruminating on the qualities of Self will find its fruition only when we begin to acquire these qualities and start manifesting them in our lives. Ultimately, it is our resolve and love for this path, which determines whether we will make progress or not!

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.
