Taking verses from the conversation of King Nimi and the nine Yogis in Srimad Bhagavatam, Ma discusses qualities and disciplines that will lead a seeker to liberation. The spiritual aspirant must learn from his Guru how to perceive the presence of the Supreme as the Lord of all, and as one’s own Self. Being unattached to possessions, he should be satisfied and contented with whatever he receives.

Contentment makes the mind restful and tranquil. Normally, we are not contented because we have a divisional outlook where we think we are different from others. We have a constant desire to acquire new things. But if we find God in every particle and atom, then there will be no desires or expectations in the mind and it will be contented. Reminding oneself of the ephemerality of the worldly pleasures, one must start looking for the permanent, imperishable Lord within.

Shraddha is the value or importance we give to things. A seeker must have complete acceptance and faith in the words of the Shastras and the Guru. Through this faith and acceptance, one will be led to the Supreme Truth.

Speaking about the greatness of Srimad Bhagavatam, Ma says that reading and listening to the text generates devotion, dispassion and love for God. Though the text contains the stories and lilas of the Lord, it is the essence of Vedanta. It expounds the truth about the non-dual Consciousness and speaks only about the oneness and unity of Atma and Brahman. It extols the state of Naishkarmya, Jnana, Vairagya and Bhakti and leads the sadhaka towards his Ultimate goal of liberation.
