Just as a sculptor creates his masterpiece through repeated chiseling, so too are our inner personalities shaped through repeated listening to the words of our Spiritual Masters. Ma Gurupriya ingrains the four-fold qualities of a true disciple deeper within us, by continuing the same topic with greater emphasis.
External austerities and disciplines will have little impact on our spiritual progress if not commensurate with the cultivation of sadhana chatustaya. Viveka (discrimination), vairagya (dispassion) and mumuksha (yearning for liberation), gradually free us from worldly attractions, but it is the 6-fold treasures that ensure our inner growth and keep us from veering off the path.
With Ma’s guidance we strive to become better students - learning with devotion, humility and openness, giving freedom to our Teachers to provide instruction and correction. Only then can we joyfully proceed with this sacred and divine adventure.

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.
