In this beautiful talk, Poojya Swamiji defines and discusses devotion extolled so beautifully in Srimad Bhagavatam.
Narrating the sweet and inspiring story of Dhruva, Swamiji discusses the virtues that adorn the young 5-year-old boy and the majesty and devotion of his mother who sent him alone to the forest to propitiate the Lord.
Swamiji exhorts all the listeners to assess what they would have done in a similar situation. Swamiji asks us to introspect and understand that the power that protects us in the womb is the same power which always protects us in the world too. Rely upon the ultimate parent—God, says Swamiji.
Chanting and explaining a very profound hymn sung by young Dhruva, Swamiji extols the listeners to have complete reliance on the Supreme Lord who animates and enlivens our body.

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.
