In this satsang, Poojya Swamiji tells us that the entire world survives on activity. The human body itself is ceaselessly active throughout the day. The energy that is generated by food, has to be spent by activity. This is the design of the nature. So an Enlightened and non-Enlightened person should have no difference at all as far the activity goes.
The difference however lies in the attitude of mind and intelligence while performing the activities. Just as an ignorant person acts in this world with delusional clinging, the enlightened one too should equally be active, but free of delusional clinging, as a contribution to the welfare of the society. Delusional clinging victimises our mind.
Swamiji enlightens us that nobody is a doer in reality. The Nature alone designs, shapes and executes all activity; we are an uninvolved witness. Imbibing this truthful insight and with a stable assessment, we should perform all our actions in a natural manner, just like the flow of a river!

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.
