Ma Gurupriyaji continues the discussion on vasanas (desires) – that are to be completely eliminated. The unbroken aspiration to realize the Truth removes all worldly desires, eventually leading us to transcend our perishable embodied identity and merge with our real imperishable Self.
Ma reminds us how blessed we are, having so many avenues available to us, for listening to and immersing in this Truth. At the same time, a sobering reminder that we must not take this gift for granted – we must be serious, steadfast and fully committed to this pursuit. When we give this Supreme Knowledge the Supreme position, we become that Knowledge.
Ultimately we must constantly look into our own mind and intelligence, all its modifications, be vigilant to all impurities and apply self-effort to be free of them. With Ma’s loving, motherly guidance, and the illuminating words of our scriptures, we continue to move along this glorious path. And all the while, at every point, fully aware that we are seekers.

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.
