Spiritual knowledge is easy to understand, easy to “know”. But to realize the Truth of our Self, to actually become That, is where most of us struggle. Why? Because we continue to be pulled outward, wanting to enjoy something different from our real “I”. The only way out of this trap, says Ma Gurupriya, is through the might of vairagya (dispassion).
Dispassion is not about coming away from the world. Yogavasistha Ramayana shows us that dispassion is the means to live effectively in this world, remaining active externally, while internally being graced by supreme peace and quiet. Ma skillfully weaves the silken threads of shlokas from this monumental scripture, together with those from other texts discussed during previous satsangs, to bring us back to the divine tapestry of what this life is – a beautiful journey back to the abode of tranquility and fearlessness, our very 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.
