In this satsang, Poojya Swamiji makes it very clear that activity is a corollary of life and in the name of spiritual wisdom, none should become inactive.
A knower, even though absolutely fulfilled and has nothing more to attain in this world, remains intensely active to illustrate that inactivity has no place in life. Spirituality should not become an excuse to remain inactive. Swamiji says, the whole world is sustained by activity and contributions from everyone. If people chose to remain inactive, the society will lose its balance, cohesion and harmony and will ultimately perish.
So, just as people with delusional clinging work, exactly in the same manner the enlightened one also should work, but with Yogic orientation. Imbued with a universal vision, all their work should have a note of 'loka sangraha' - a contribution to the cohesion and welfare of 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.
