Beyond the mind, intelligence and ego, is our inner identity from where no activity proceeds nor any result befalls. It is the unaffected witness of everything. The aim of spirituality is to enquire into and arrive at our Real identity.
Quoting slokas from Yoga Vasistha Ramayana, Poojya Swamiji describes 1) Maha Bhokta - the one who remains harmonious and poised in all situations, by relying on the vast depth and resourcefulness of his mind and 2) Maha Tyagi - the one who performs all activities effectively without getting constricted by the pairs of opposites - with his buddhi anchored in the Self!
Swamiji tells us - With these inner refinement and enrichment, one can function delightfully in this world with absolute ease, harmony and freedom!
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.
