In this enlightening satsang, Ma gently reminds us - again and again through an assortment of beautiful slokas that, mere scriptural knowledge alone cannot help us attain liberation. Unless our mind gets completely absorbed in the Supreme Brahman, unless we begin to live the knowledge, our efforts will not bear any fruit.
Even if one is wise, learned and given to understanding the subtle Self, all of it can be overpowered by the gunas - tamas and rajas. Though we are unaffected and unbounded like the Sky, these gunas delude us into thinking that 'I am the limited body'. This mistaken identity in-turn brings with it a train of miseries and sufferings. So a sincere seeker must genuinely love to dwell on the true nature of the Self. Though living in this material body, one should have no identification with it.
To know I belong to God and everything is God alone - is the quickest and easiest way to fill our life with divinity!

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.
