Discussing the subject of devotion in this talk, Swamiji says, “Devotion should enlarge and expand the devotee’s mind.”
Swamiji gives the listeners a taste of the devotional Srimad Bhagavatam by taking up the conversation between King Nimi and the nine Yogis. King Nimi is told how a devotee’s mind should expand considering the entire earth, sky, water, fire etc as the body of the Lord. Swamiji exhorts the listeners to always have a linkage with the Universal Lord.
Swamiji also discusses the greatness and universal love of the saints who liberally distribute self-knowledge to spiritual aspirants.

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.
