In this satsang, Poojya Swamiji tells us that for a mature knower, there is no conflict between absorptional and interactive states. The two states are harmonious and complimentary to each other.
For any seeker, the nishta is always only one. At the initial phase, it is always coupled with Karma. But as the mind becomes more and more pure and sublime, it attains the state of Naishkarmya, where the activities will automatically fall. It is brought about by a lofty level of maturity gained by the mind.
Swamiji makes it very clear that none can remain inactive even for a moment. The three gunas of nature will compel everyone to act. So, not taking up activity or abandoning one's activity in the name of spirituality, is not harmonious with nature. One will not succeed in attaining the supreme goal, by such forceful restraint of activity!

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.
