As we continue our spiritual journey, we must have an overwhelming feeling of blessedness and gratitude in our lives for having the rare fortune of treading this glorious spiritual path. Through each satsang, our spiritual masters are constantly inspiring us to go forward with full confidence - reminding us that the goal is absolutely within our reach.
This being an inner pursuit, the onus is on us to become completely open and sincere in assessing our own minds - identifying the qualities which are conducive to our progress, yearning for them, imbibing them and making them our own. At the same time we must be steadfast in rejecting all those traits which are hindrances to our progress.
Ma lovingly tells us that this process of self assessment, correction and sublimation should be a life long practice, as there is no limit to perfection. Yet, every small improvement we make is very sweet and enjoyable - there is great joy in dwelling on a quality, getting drenched in it and to become it. One has to love this pursuit, for this alone will lead one to eternal peace and happiness.

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.
