In this illuminating Satsang, Poojya Swamiji describes the final attainment in spirituality: Brahmi Stithi - The state of all embracing oneness.
To begin with a student of spirituality is taught to differentiate between the soul and the body. Once, the inner spiritual presence is unmistakably recognized, the seeker then pursues meditation - a process of getting immersed wakefully into the self. But this meditative absorption is also a state like other states and hence not final.
Swamiji tells us that the aim of meditative experience, is to expand our personality and lead us finally to a plane of introspectional perception - seeing the whole world as an expression of the Self or Consciousness. This Brahmi Stithi is evolved, strengthened and attained with the help of intelligence and inference alone!
Poojya Swamiji will be taking Bhagavad Gita Verse by Verse in this Satsang (Saturdays). Swamiji is now discussing the second chapter of the Bhagavad Gita.

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.
