Is it possible to remain calm and tranquil in the midst of activities? Can our restless mind become peaceful? Can we remain unaffected whatever be the external situation?
Drawing parallels from Young Rama's questions to Sage Vasishtha at the picturesque Court of Ayodhya to her own seeking and dispassion during her young days which led her to Guru Baba Gangadhara Paramahamsa and Poojya Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha ji, Ma Gurupriya ji reiterates that a burning desire for liberation and association with self-realized saints is the only way to eternal peace and happiness.
Let us get inspired by Ma's own spiritual journey and the examples she had vividly expounded from our sacred texts - the young Nachiketas at Yama's abode and Sage Suka in King Janaka's palace, and strive to follow the radiant path of light led by our Guru.

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.
