In this satsang, Poojya Swamiji once again reaffirms that even by remaining intensely active in this world, one can attain Supreme felicity. The secret lies in tranforming all our activities into a Yajna.
Swamiji reminds us that this transformation is brought about by an attitudinal orientation of mind, guided by the intelligence. When the delusional clinging is taken away from activity, it becomes a great, noble and divine act. This Yajna attitude makes our actions a contribution to the world welfare and at the same time, it enriches and enlightens us internally, thereby helping us attain the spiritual goal also. If however, one does not conform to this Yajna attitude, he lives a mere sensory and sinful life. He lives in vain.
But there is an exception. A knower, who rejoices in his own spritiual presence, always contented in himself and delights in his inner fullness and abundance, is free from all kinds of duties and injunctions. For the one who has realised the self and abides in it, there is no question of doing or not doing anything. From him, the shastras simply keep away because whatever he thinks, feels or does is always exceedingly benign, beneficial and benevolent to the whole world!

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.
