In this satsang Ma talks about 'lack of intensity in seeking' - which is a common defect found in most seekers. This lack of one-pointedness in seeking is a significant hurdle in our path. Inspite of learning many shastras, spending many years practicing sadhana and even having an association with the Guru, we find ourselves far away from the goal.
Three types of vaasanas - deha, shastra and loka vaasana are inherently present in a small or large measure in all of us. Very often, our minds chase one or more of these vaasanas. Ma says, this happens because we do not give the Supreme, the supreme place in our lives. It means, we are not steadfast in our pursuit to realize our true identity.
Ma enlightens us that whether we are at home or in ashram, the sadhana is to observe the tendencies of the mind and introspect sincerely why it gets distracted so easily? Only when we have an intense yearning for Atma, in exclusion of everything else - will the Atma reveal itself.

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.
