The exploration into sthitaprajna – of being absorbed in the Self – continues with Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha. Drawing from Bhagavad Gita and other scriptures, Swamiji not only describes further this glorious state, but more importantly, leads us along the path to that state and shows us very clearly what follows.
Swamiji addresses a comment by a viewer that too much Sanskrit is being used in the Satsangs. In a mesmerizing combination of blazing confidence and joyful lightness, Swamiji emphasizes that our Spiritual Masters only live and speak of that which is in our ancient texts. When we observe how Swamiji answers any query and handles any situation, with a vigour and brilliance that is weaved all the way through with full love and delight, we need no convincing that imbibing the Knowledge ingrained in the scriptures indeed makes us experience life as nothing but an enjoyable sport.

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.
