On this last day, taking a Mantra, Swamiji makes a detailed analysis of the word ‘Bhadram’-auspiciousness.
We have to generate auspicious thoughts in our mind. Although we are praying to Devas and other natural powers to see, hear and feel auspiciousness, the onus is on us to make everything auspicious. An external pilgrimage cannot help us in this matter. We need to embark on an inner pilgrimage to refine and sublimate our own within.
Swamiji also discusses the last Mantra which is an exclusive prayer for our own Sadhana and Self-Realization. “Self-Realization is the transformation, purification and maturation of the body, mind and intelligence. That buddhi which is now revealing the world with multiple differences, the same buddhi will start to reveal the One Truth behind the whole existence.” concludes Swamiji.
Om Bhadram karnebhih.......
Om yo bhahmaanam vidadhaati poorvam.....

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.
