Swami Nirviseshananda Tirtha brings further depth and clarity to concepts introduced during his last Satsang. The three spheres of existence that we experience are Baahyaakaasha (objective outer sphere of body and world around), Cittaakaasha (subjective inner sphere that includes the objective sphere as well as our inner thoughts and emotions) and Cidaakaasha (transcendental sphere of Consciousness upon which subsists everything). Most important, Swamiji repeatedly emphasizes, is that these are not mere concepts for us to understand, but Truth that we must introspect on and realize for ourselves.
It is through our own practice of meditation and contemplation on the Self that we become what we pursue. The main point we must not miss, is that as long as we think of the Self as something separate to be attained, it will never happen. It is through looking inward and constantly bringing ourselves back to the awareness within us that reveals everything (including our own innermost thoughts) that this Truth becomes our own. This is the real samadhi. And then we can comfortably and confidently walk the razor's edge, without being pulled off by our worldliness, knowing fully well that the edge itself is nothing other than our own Self.

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.
