In this satsang, Nutan Swamiji recaps the essential points discussed during the series of satsangs on Mundakopanishad.
Swamiji beautifully lays out how the Upanishad, through its three parts (Mundakas), leads a seeker step by step towards Self-realisation. The first mundaka calls out the limitations of Rituals and decries those holding on to them as the Supreme. The Upanishad firmly declares that all types of knowledge are inferior except that with which the imperishable is realised, which makes us immortal. To gain that 'para vidya', one must humbly approach a Guru, who has realised the Truth, and seek his guidance.
The second mundaka describes Brahmavidya, the knowledge of the Transcendental Truth, how this knowledge is different from all other object knowledge, for it is non-dual. When brahmavidya is actualised, it confers all fold fulfilment in life. The last mundaka presents the supreme Vishuddha Sattva State, and unravels the highest pursuit, the sadhana of desirelessness, asserting that when all desires are dissolved, the mortal man becomes immortal in this very life!
Swamiji will be discussing 'Voice of Upanishads'. The Global Satsang will be based on Kathopanishad and Mundakopanishad. | Live Satsangs with Spiritual Masters on Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday at 8 pm IST/10:30 am EDT/ 10:30 pm MST.

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.
