In this satsang, Ma elucidates that our life will continue to be burdensome as long as we do not apply the Spiritual Knowledge in our daily life and interactions, and yearn for divinizing every moment.
All problems start with our wrong identification with this limited body-mind personality. From it comes the feeling of 'I'-ness and 'Mine'-ness and from that arises desires and clinging to multitude of things. As long as this feeling of differentiation persists, we can never feel liberated. So, even while living at home and performing all responsibilities, internally we must have the conviction that our loftier aim in life is to become jivan mukta.
Ma tells us that home is not a place for enjoyment alone, it should become an abode for our sadhana. We should never become inattentive or waste our time on unnecessary things. Outwardly we should do everything with a lot of interest and concern, but at heart we must know that we are the Self; the non-doer. This feeling should gradually become natural in us like the bloodflow or breathing.
Ultimately, it is desires which constrict our mind. When all desires are dissolved, our mind becomes free, expansive, boundaryless and graceful!

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.
