How to remain unaffected by the vicissitudes of life? - has been an eternal quest of human beings. In this inspiring and thought provoking satsang, Swamiji nudges us to think deeply as to what is life?
Quoting slokas from Bhagavad Gita, Swamiji defines life as a constant interaction between the senses in our body and the objects of this world. Each one of these interactions inevitably produces either happiness or sorrow in the mind. These are the only possible outcomes of interactions and they are transitory.
Swamiji says the mastery in living life is to develop tolerance in the mind and wholeheartedly accepting both sukha and dukha with an even attitude - knowing well their complementary nature. To develop this evenness is like winning over the world, because the whole world can produce only these two outcome in our minds. Knowing that all efforts to pursue sukha and ridding dukha is redundant, we should live joyfully and comfortably - as Masters of this world.

Narayanashrama Tapovanam, an Ashram located in Thrissur, Kerala, embodies the unique tradition of Guru-shishya Parampara, disseminating Brahmavidya (Science of Self-knowledge) through regular classes, satsangs, and above all, through learning in the association of a realized spiritual master.
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.
