In this talk, Ma emphasizes the fact that the purpose of human birth is to realize God and to attain unbroken bliss, unaffectedness, stability and fearlessness.
Ma continues to underline the importance of living in the company of a Guru and serving him. Ma says that sadhana in a Guru’s association becomes wholesome when a seeker absorbs the instructions well, assimilates them and tries to apply them in his life.
Ma says that divinizing every moment and every activity is the final goal of spirituality. How to divinize all our activities and interactions? In answer to this query in all minds, Ma says that the regular practice of Japa, meditation and introspection on the soul dimensions are the methods to feel the Divine touch everywhere.
Ma urges seekers to purify and expand their minds by singing the glory of God and hearing about His excellences. Knowing the Lord and the Guru to be one, worship him with full devotion and gratitude, says Ma.

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.
