This powerful discourse exposes the dynamism and mechanism of the mind and its functions.
Quoting extensively from Yoga Vasistha and other texts, Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha ji highlights the fact that the mind is the fulcrum of all our experiences and interactions. Swamiji says, “All conflicts are born in, of and by the mind and the solution is also to be attained in the same mind. If you can refine, reform, enrich and enlighten the mind, you will attain the crowning glory of human life.”
Swamiji, exhorts us to understand that our ignorance (about our own inner resources) is the source of all our conflicts and suffering. With right orientation and sublimation, we can make the mind harmonious and stable.

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.
