In this satsang, Nutan Swamiji tells us that until all inauspicious, fragmented thoughts go away from our mind, it is not possible to develop one-pointed devotion towards God.
From childhood, we are slaves to world objects and objective situations. The peace of mind is often disturbed by what happens outside. In that world, we have to become master. Swamiji enlightens us that the affectation is not by the world, but by our mind. By treating the mind, we can become unaffected. The mind has to be treated with constant remembrance of Truth.
Whatever our mind interacts with, it accrues the qualities of that object. The mind when it interacts with likes and dislikes, becomes affected and fragmented. Swamiji says, when the same mind is made to interact with Brahman - the all-pervading, unaffected and transcendental truth, our mind too becomes uniform, unaffected and all pervading. With constant vichara, our being undergoes transformation and we begin to see the one unchanging Truth in everything. The mind attains placidity and begins to revel in freedom from bondage of three gunas.
Swamiji will be discussing 'Voice of Upanishads'. The Global Satsang will be based on Kathopanishad and Mundakopanishad. | Live Satsangs with Spiritual Masters on Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday at 8 pm IST/10:30 am EDT/ 10:30 pm MST.

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.
