As spiritual seekers, we may have acquired a great deal of academic knowledge about Atma. But will that suffice in making us stable and poised through all vagaries of life? Nutan Swamiji explains that the knowledge of Atma will become fruitful and beneficial only when we realize Atma as our own identity. By seeing Atma as our own identity - we attain eternal sukha.
Swamiji elaborates that this seeing is not an ordinary seeing through sense organs nor a comprehension through the process of inference - it is on the other hand a direct (aparoksha) knowledge of the Self. The sukha which accrues from it is eternal because it is not depended on anything else. It comes from being rooted in one's own real identity which is eternal, unchanging, and unaffected.
Swamiji says, it is an inestimable treasure available to anyone, provided one sincerely pursues for 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.

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.
