This is the concluding address by Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha in the “Global Bhagavad Gita Convention—2022” held from 19th to 21st of February.
In this inspirational address, Swamiji says that the performer will be able to attain magnificence only when he is able to handle his own mind. The key for the best performance is to make the mind harmonious.
Swamiji reminds us that all interactions proceed from the mind, subsist on the mind and conclude in the mind. The mind has to become immensely resourceful if one wants to be a magnificent performer.
Quoting various verses from the Bhagavad Gita, Swamiji emphasizes that a seeker will have to cultivate Samatva (Equanimity) which will make the mind accommodating, assimilative, inclusive and Universal.
Swamiji exhorts all the youth to understand the infinite resources of the mind and intelligence and by that Knowledge remove all fear, doubts, apprehensions from the mind. He reiterates that it is only the harmony of the mind that makes one a magnificent performer by which one becomes a tower of strength, inspiration, confidence and inclusiveness.

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.
