In this exquisite satsang, Ma explains to us how the qualities of Rajas and Tamas affects a spiritual seeker.
Ma tells us that Rajas keeps our mind active in a variety of thoughts. It propels us to do more and more sadhana and distracts us from dwelling one-pointedly on Brahman, thereby defeating the whole purpose of sadhana. Tamas on the other hand enervates our mind through lethargy, inattention and sleep. The mind thus rendered impure by Rajas and Tamas, will not be able to grasp the real nature of Self!
So, to isolate our mind from the effects of Rajas and Tamas, Ma exhorts us to perform all our actions in tune with Sattva Guna. Unless we imbibe sattvic qualities, our mind cannot become pure.

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.
