For all embodied beings who are tormented by the scorching fire of worldliness, Guru alone is the sure refuge. Having crossed the boundless ocean of samsara himself, the Guru lovingly guides the seekers who approach him with humility. Like the spring season, he is intent on doing good to others without any motive, purely out of his compassion and mercy.
Ma enlightens us that constant reflection on our real nature - Brahman, its attributes, is the effective means to shake off all our delusions and become illumined and fulfilled in life. Like the mirror which reveals our face clearly when the dust on its surface is removed, the mind too must be constantly rubbed with the thought of the Self. When the mind becomes calm and pure, the Self reveals itself.
When the disciple treads the path and attains the illumined state - that is the greatest joy and festivity for the preceptor!

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.
