In all these weeks narrating the singular devotion of little Prahlada, Ma Gurupriya’s fundamental aim is for us to get identified with his characteristics. For one endowed with such wholesome and exclusive devotion to pray that he never be swayed by desires and attachments, speaks volumes about what we all have to be extremely watchful over.
The basic point is that we must always remain connected to our inner Self. The starting point, is listening to words of the Wise Ones who remain ever connected. Yes, we are likely to get dislodged over and over again. But through repeated listening, Ma lovingly assures that the time spent away from our core identity will gradually diminish. Until we too, with the compassion and grace of our Spiritual Masters, become permanently and unshakably anchored in the Soul.

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.
