Swamiji continues to discuss the very first profound and comprehensive verse. It speaks about the Source of creation, preservation and dissolution.
Creation is composed of the three gunas, Sattva, rajas and tamas hence illusory like a dream. But the substratum of creation is the eternal imperishable presence, which is all powerful.
Swamiji enjoins all listeners to contemplate on this truth so that the mind and intelligence are illumined. Swamiji beautifully elaborates on the contemplation process which is to enable listeners to comprehend and realize the Supreme Truth shining in their own within.
With the beautiful intelligence, contemplate on the eternal truth, the soul which permeates all, says Swamiji.

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.
