On this auspicious occasion of Janmashtami, Ma vividly narrates an adorable childhood story of Krishna and follows it up with the beautiful description of the mood of festivity in whole nature, awaiting the birth of the Special One!
We have not seen Krishna, nor do we have a picture of him. But his words are still available to us. In Bhagavad Gita Krishna says I am the source of everything and from me alone everything is activated. I am the goal, the sustainer, refuge and benefactor friend of everyone. Ma says, it is this Krishna, we are talking about, not the bodily form.
The incarnaton is a rare oppurtunity for us to have a loving association with Krishna's human form. Thinking about his plays, his deeds, his words, and remembering his leela and qualities, gives us divine joy and supreme bliss. Still, all this is secondary, our aim in life is to realize the Truth and to be established in it, to become little Krishnas ourselves. That alone will ensure us supreme felicity!

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.
