The concluding talk on Bhagavad Gita by Swamiji is followed by a thought-provoking question and answer session.
The questions asked during the session:
How can one know whether one is doing his own Svadharma? What is the yardstick to know that we have completely surrendered to the Divine and to our Guru?
In Vicharasethu (Ashram’s monthly journal), in the article “Science of inner Redemption” Queen Choodala says “The process of ceaseless desire is called the mind”. In another place in Vicharasethu it was said, “Mind is nothing but Consciousness itself”, In another place it says, “Mind is a mere delusion”. Please clarify.
Why would Brahman even create such a complex cycle of existence? What was the purpose? How did Brahman come into existence in the first place? Where did all the energy in the universe come from?
Although the questions are raised by a few individuals, Swamiji’s replies resonate with all the listeners. Listening to Swamiji’s commentary on the mind, one feels compelled to introspect on it and understand the workings of the mind.

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.
