In this satsang, Poojya Swamiji enlightens us that it is by virtue of sharp intelligence and its skill of discrimination and discretion, that we can attain a state of light and radiant mind.
Spiritual wisdom is not an exclusive domain of ascetics and recluses, it is equally application to people living in the household. One can reach the supreme goal even while remaining active in this world. Swamiji says our mind and intelligence are functional notes of Consciousness. They have infinite magnitude and potential. It is only due to the dullness of discrimination, that we fall prey to ignorance and delusion. This lack of discretion and evaluation of matters is the repository of all dangers and misfortunes in our life.
Everything in this world is impelled by nature and its three gunas and the universal wheel of activity goes on in its course ceaselessly. So, there is no point grieving over what has already happened or to become anxious about the future. One has to simply employ his mind, intelligence and willpower to do whatever is necessary in the present, cheerfully and contently as a contribution to the world welfare!

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.
