In this satsang, Nutan Swamiji summarises the essential points from the third and final chapter of Mundakopanishad.
Swamiji points out that as long as the taste for worldliness lingers in us, it is not possible to attain Atma. Only when we yearn wholesomely for Atma to the exclusion of everything else, Atma will reveal its Truth to us. It requires tremendous inner strength, unwavering attention and properly directed austerity, to remain fixed to the Truth always.
True knowledge will make us realize that happiness does not belong to the world and hence it is redundant to foster desires for anything. It is the desires, big and subtle, which keeps us constricted. The ultimate state is 'Vishuddha Sattva', when the seeker becomes absolutely desireless and flows in tune with the fundamental nature. He will not be bound by any of bondages created by gunas, even when they are functioning in his personality. In such a pure mind, all thoughts which arise will be like the thoughts of the Providence, they get fulfilled!
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.

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.
