In this extremely sublime satsang, Poojya Swamiji exhorts all of us to shift our focus from the external world to the 'I' - the subject presence.
Meditation is a process of getting absorbed into the Self within, in a state of absorptional stillness, when the body, mind and intelligence remains inactive. But this is a temporary state and we will eventually break away from it. So, how can one remain in state of fullness always? Swamiji enlightens us that, we must seek abidance in the Brahman - the universal Consciousness. Using self effort, we have to pursue the spiritual knowledge to such an extent that we firmly get lodged in Brahman.
Swamiji tells us that this happens through a process of understanding. Once we attain the supreme beatitude, there is no fall from there!
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.
