In this talk, Ma reiterates that a sadhaka (the spiritual practitioner) must have unswerving faith in the words of the scriptures and in the words of the Guru.
Ma underlines the importance of reflection and self enquiry in spiritual practice.
Ma urges us to constantly assess ourselves and evaluate our progress. We must question ourselves whether we have the requisite intensity and yearning to reach the goal. Ma warns us that we must not get complacent thinking that we have made good progress in the spiritual path.
In this exposition, Ma gives us clues on how to cultivate dispassion towards the transitory world. She encourages us to take the help of slokas to enrich our minds and experience Godliness all around us.
Most importantly, Ma reminds us that we must feel a sense of blessedness and gratitude for the presence of the guiding hand of the Guru in our lives. A Guru alone will unconditionally purify us and facilitate our spiritual progress, 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.
