Our scriptures provide innumerable descriptions about the qualities of a Knower, of one who is a real Guru. But, cautions Swami Nirviseshananda Tirtha, it is not for us to use these qualities to analyze a Knower – or anyone else for that matter. The onus is on us to ensure that we are worthy seekers.
Priceless insights into Swamiji’s own personal journey with his Guru, from the time they first met, continue to shower us in this beautiful Satsang. It is abundantly clear to all listening and watching that Swamiji himself was the embodiment of all the virtues a seeker must have in approaching the Guru – humility, simplicity, openness and most importantly, pure innocent love for the Guru and this path.

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.
