Swamiji continues with the discussion of contemplation on the supreme transcendental power, our own indweller. He stresses on the supreme importance of this contemplation upon the Soul.
Swamiji exhorts the listeners to close their eyes and contemplate on the Source which is right within the body. It is the source of all thought processes and emotional processes. Get into the very source and abide there, says Swamiji, and your life will change miraculously.
Quoting a verse from Bhagavad Gita, Swamiji proceeds to discuss the power and potential of the mind and intelligence. Discussing the Supreme Presence, the Atma, that enlivens everything, Swamiji says that the mind and intelligence have to constantly contemplate on this inmost presence.
Chanting a verse from Vivekachudamani Swamiji speaks about the intrinsic qualities and nature of our own inner personality. Srimad Bhagavatam and all scriptures want us to contemplate on this Supreme Truth, says Swamiji.

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.
