In this satsang, Swamiji tells us that as spiritual seekers, we should keep away from all religious concepts which are non-experiential and focus on that which will lead us to the direct realization of our immortal Self.
The Atma in spirituality is the revealer of the whole universe, which includes our individual body-mind personality. It shines as the 'I' in us. Though revealing the infinite variety of objects, it remains untouched by them. The moment 'I' gets identified with an individual body-mind identity, it becomes constricted and mortal.
Swamiji explains that, being the subject, Atma cannot be known as something different from us. It is our own identity. However, due to the objectivising tendency of our mind, it always slips off our comprehension. So, we should apply our viveka-buddhi and dedicate it to the ultimate truth and finally get fused in it.
Swamiji will be discussing 'Voice of Upanishads'. The Global Satsang will be based on Kathopanishad and Mundakopanishad. | Live Satsangs with Spiritual Masters on Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday at 8 pm IST/10:30 am EDT/ 10:30 pm MST.

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.
