How to grow to the dimension of a true devotee like Prahlada? We listen to Satsangs, feel deeply inspired and moved by what we hear, perhaps even read scriptures and make shlokas our own. But why are we not able to actually BE that supreme devotee? Ma Gurupriya sheds much-needed light.
Unless we actually love and yearn to be a supreme devotee, remaining ever connected to the Supreme Lord in every thought, word and action, it will never happen. We get derailed by our own foolish ideas and notions, desires and traits. As Ma says, complete transformation can only take place with patience and humility, seeing divinity in everything and operating from a heart full of love and gratitude. Indeed, we bow our heads in gratitude to our benevolent Spiritual Masters, for constantly illuminating the path.

Narayanashrama Tapovanam, an Ashram located in Thrissur, Kerala, embodies the unique tradition of Guru-shishya Parampara, disseminating Brahmavidya (Science of Self-knowledge) through regular classes, satsangs, and above all, through learning in the association of a realized spiritual master.
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.
