In this beautiful satsang, Ma stresses on the importance of acquiring and developing Sattva Guna, to progress in our sadhana.
Ma enlightens us that at any time, our mind is a dynamic mixture of three gunas - Sattva, Rajas and Tamas. Out of the three, Sattva Guna - of the nature of joy, wisdom and illumination - alone conduces to liberation. When Sattva guna increases, our mind will become more and more sensitive to the presence of undesirable traits and will act to eliminate them.
Ma enlightens us how the harmful tendencies of Tamas can be restrained by taking up activity (which is a quality of Rajas). If the activity we take up is Sattvic in nature, like listening or reading spiritual texts, or doing service to Mahatmas, then through that very effort both Tamas and Rajas will be subdued and Sattva Guna will take predominance in our being!
Mā's Satsang is entitled 'Towards Eternal Peace and Happiness' based on Bhagavad Gita, Vivekachudamani, Yoga Vasistha Ramayanam and Bhagavatam | | Live Global Satsang with Spiritual Masters on Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday at 8 pm IST/ 10:30 am EDT/ 10:30 pm MST

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.
