In this satsang, Poojya Swamiji explains the importance of having clarity and enlightened assessment of activities and interactions, inorder to conduct them in a harmonious and fulfilling manner.
Behind all small and big activity that goes on in this world, the three gunas of nature alone are at work. It is the 'ahankara' or delusional ego feeling, which makes us say 'I am doing'. The gunas have their play in the sensory, bodily, mind and intelligence level of our personality, but at the core I level, we are a non-doer; no action transpires there and no effect befalls. It is our delusional association with activity, which produces agitation and worry.
Swamiji says, it is imperative that we have an enlightened assessment of all matters. We have to employ our intelligence, probe into our own inner personality and understand the true nature of life and interactions. In the light of this truthful assessment, we should not foster any relation with any activity at all; assimilating whatever comes and let go whatever goes, and remain harmonious and poised all the while!

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.
