Poojya Swamiji, in this enthralling satsang reminds us that the very nature of human life in this world is interactional. As long as the heart beats, there is no question of suspending our interactions. In this context, Swamiji narrates the advice of Sage Vasishta to Sri Rama, when the young prince took the decision to renounce everything. The sage's advice to Rama was to become a magnificent performer, enjoyer and relinquisher in life.
Drawing nourishment from the inner silence and attuning the mind to give up all its delusions of egotism, self respect and competition, take up and perform all work that comes up from time to time, with finesse. Remaining wise and intelligent, course through the unfoldment of events in life - accepting whatever comes or leaving whatever goes - gracefully. Therein lies success and fulfillment.
Swamiji tells us that our mind certainly has the capability to expand to such lofty dimensions!
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.

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.
