In this extremely delightful satsang on the new year's day, Poojya Swamiji explains to us the aim and utility of Spirituality in our lives.
Swamiji tells us that even though our body lives and moves around in this world, our life is actually lived in the mind alone. So the welfare and wellbeing of the mind should be our sole focus at all times. What we call mind is nothing but a functional expression of Consciousness. It is the source, the essence, the substratum and terminus of all thoughts, emotions, perceptions etc. Being so, nothing can ever taint or unsettle it.
Our mind has the unique ability to absorb and assimilate any input from the world and become enriched and empowered in the process. Swamiji tells us that spirituality is this very process of qualitative enrichment of our being. Every event, every moment in our life is for enriching us, provided we pay heed to it!
Poojya Swamiji will be taking Bhagavad Gita Verse by Verse in this Satsang (Saturdays). Swamiji is now discussing the second chapter of the Bhagavad Gita.

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.
