Poojya Swamiji enlightens us that renunciation or tyaga is possible in the intelligence alone. Physically giving up objects is not true renunciation, nay it is impossible too. Real tyaga is the dropping of ego and possessiveness over all objects and activities. It is of the nature of enlightenment - a sublime note of evenness, which ornaments our intelligence.
Swamiji tells us that the entire host of visibles is merely a display or imprint in the perceiving consciousness. The consciousness simply remains an unaffected witness of everything. Knowing well that we are ever this untainted Subject Consciousness, one must do all activities which comes up from time to time, without any sense of resistance or difference - thereby attaining supreme beatitude within!
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.
