We often wonder if it is possible to remain completely established in Atmic Dimension while interacting with the world. Swami Nirviseshananda Tirtha tells us that it is indeed possible by realizing that all ‘vrittis’ (manifestations) are simply writings in the Consciousness - there is no material difference.
Swamiji reveals the secret of spiritual sadhana to us – “Perceive all the differences as a ‘svagata bheda’ of Atma. This seeing of Atma everywhere is the real Sadhana to be pursued”. Swamiji further enlightens us by stating that ‘āvṛttacakṣuh’ is not exactly meditation, but a shifting of focus from the perceived world to the ‘I’, the perceiver. The happiness derived internally from the Self in meditation, is obtained in an interminable measure by identifying with the Atma (universal consciousness). As we continue to get enriched by Swamiji’s Satsangs, let us make a resolution to follow his guidance earnestly.

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.
