Even though we have a good understanding of the Spiritual Knowledge and our interest in Spirituality is growing each day, why do we still feel bound by this world? Why does the simplest of happenings distract us? Ma tells us, it is because our mind remains scattered in manifold thoughts and not in Self.
Developing one pointed devotion for God should be our aim. Although house is an abode of worldly enjoyments and satisfaction, they are short-lived and changeful. When the mind gets attached to wife, son, wealth and possessions, all of which are changeful, it becomes restless. In order to have eternal peace, one must grow attachment to the Permanent; the ever-present God within.
Ma says, while remaining in household, we should take care of the family and also earnestly do whatever is necessary, but inwardly we should have a constant association with God. We must also develop a loving association with Saints and Knowers, who have realised the Truth. By giving Supreme value to this ‘satsanga’, the clinging to all worldly things will drop off in no time and one will feel liberated and free in life!

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.
