In this satsang, Ma tells us that imbibing the qualities and characteristics of a Knower is the sadhana for all seekers.
A knower, no matter what he does, speaks or thinks, never falls from Self-Seatedness - from the fact that he is the Self. In every activity, he has no feeling of doership and enjoyership, and hence has an equal disposition in all situations. Ma says, he is able to do so because he is absolutely desireless. There is no desire because he lives the Knowledge that Self is One without a second.
Even though we come to know of the Self and its characteristics, we find it difficult to live the knowledge. The hindrance in our path are our desires and expectations. Ma cautions us that even if the desires for external objects are gone, the subtle desires and expectations will still be there in our day to day interactions and they produce agitation and grief. Ultimately, our ego or the sense of limited identity has to dissolve. To do that we have to unconditionally love everybody, by acknowledging everything as an expression of our own Self!

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.
