In this satsang, Ma tells us that we can become liberated from the affectations of the world only when we give up the feeling of I-ness and Mine-ness and in its place, we start perceiving God everywhere, in everything, everytime.
Even if one is learned and knows about the Self, if he is unable to get over the divisive thoughts of 'Me' and 'Others', that bheda-buddhi will cause suffering. The differential notion makes one attached to one’s own family, friends and possessions and remain immersed in the thoughts about them. When the mind gets tied to people or even one’s own views and ideas, it becomes a bondage.
Ma says, it is this entanglement in family life, which produces restlessness of mind. Therefore, we must abandon all our clinging and take shelter at the feet of Supreme Lord - who is the treasure house of peace, joy and security. Outwardly, we must live as a normal person, but inwardly we should remain unattached, anchored in the Reality.

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.
