In this satsang, Ma meticulously describes the aim of sadhana for all of us seekers. The sadhana should lead us to a state, where the mind is laden with God - in all our perceptions, thoughts and activity. It should firmly establish us in Oneness of existence - free of all differentiation and never fall from it. When that happens, the mind begins to rejoice in the ceaseless joy, welling forth from the infinite nature of our being.
But, why do we find it difficult to be seated in the truth once and for all? Ma says, it is due to our long standing habit of identifying ourselves with the body. By identifying with the body, a feeling of 'I-ness' and 'mine-ness' develops in the mind and this mistaken identification is the root cause for all our sufferings.
A seeker of truth should therefore repeatedly listen to, ruminate over and meditate on the supreme reality. Ma points out that it should not be a mechanical process, rather we must joyfully and effortlessly think about the all pervading presence, allowing it to make a deep impression in our mind and feel flooded by its infinitude.

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.
