Ma Gurupriya's Satsang is at once sobering and soothing. Taking us deeper into understanding the stranglehold of raaga-dvesha (clinging to likes and hating dislikes), Ma gives us the means to break free of this ultimate source of mental anguish.
In every interaction, the root of all expectation, irritation, blaming tendencies and any kind of mental agitation, is nothing other than raaga-dvesha. It is this twin evil that is inherent in all of us, seated deeply in undiscovered crevices of our being. But, as Ma points out so lovingly, there is a way to eliminate this source of sorrow. Taking us by the hand, teaching us the verses from scriptures that describe the path as well as what happens once the goal is reached, Ma shows us how to live and become those verses. What keeps us going is Ma's reassurance that yes we will fall - perhaps over and over - but we will, finally, reach.

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.
