While living as an individual in this world, how can we make our actions and interactions proper, meaningful and fulfilling? Poojya Swamiji explains that this will be possible only when our mind becomes Spiritual and Yogic.
The secret lies in gaining the right knowledge about oneself. Swamiji says, the feeling that we are the body is only a notion. The recognition of the true nature of 'I', that we are spiritual and not material, will instil in us a new perception and will bring about a transformation in our understanding of matters. The 'I' ever remains free and dissociated from all else.
We truly have no ownership over any activity - be it physical, mental or worldly. All actions are done by the Nature through its gunas. So, relinquishing the ego and possessiveness with regards to all activity, we should be active in the world, but with this new Yogic orientation of mind. It is this inner renunciation of ownership and possessiveness, which bestows peace, freedom and fulfilment 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.
