Fate may bring life's situations to us, but at every turn we have to exert our self-will and make our own choices. Swami Nirviseshananda Tirtha not only drives home this point in this Satsang, more importantly, he equips with the tools to make the right decisions.
Drawing from some of the most beautiful verses from Kathopanishad, Swamiji takes us through the two kinds of choices we are always handed. Explaining the chariot model of the human personality and how to anchor the intelligence to the Soul, Swamiji finally shows us the key to living a smooth and enlightened life.
Kathopanishad 1.1.26, 1.2.2, 1.2.14, 1.2.18, 2.3.14, 1.2.20, 1.2.23, 1.3.3, 1.3.4, 1.3.14
Bhagavad Gita 6.22, 3.27, 3.28
Svetasvatara Upanishad 6.8

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.
