In this satsang, Ma elucidates that the purpose of acquiring spiritual knowledge is to practice it in our daily life and also to grow with it.
Although we have read and heard about the Self and its characteristics, it continues to remain abstract in our experience. We do not know what these qualities mean in our practical life. So, Ma tells us, it is much easier to observe and follow a Mahatma - who has realised the Self. The sadhana for seekers is to imbibe his qualities and to live them. A knower, always remains connected to the Self, no matter what he does. We too should aspire to transform our ordinary vision to one of Knowledge (that everything is Brahman) and look at the world through that Knowledge.
Spiritual wisdom is an understanding, an enlightenment, which takes away from our mind and intelligence, all notes of differentiation or bheda-buddhi.The dividing intellect which differentiates between spiritual and worldly activities, Self and Non-Self, when becomes enlightened, recognises Brahman as the One without a second and comprehends the unity in diversity. The plurality gets soaked with the oneness of Self!

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.
