In this satsang, Nutan Swamiji shares with us the lofty Yajnavalkya-Maitreyi story from the Brihadaranyaka upanishad.
Maitreyi who was devoutly given to Spiritual Pursuit from early life, wished to be under the tutelage of the revered knower Yajnavalkya, recognizing well that there is no better teacher than him to take refuge under. Swamiji beautifully describes how Yajnavalkya's wife Katyayani, impressed by the genuine yearning and intention of Maitreyi, accepts her proposal to marry her husband and how the three of them lived in loving companionship, complementing each other in their spiritual maturation!
It is our great fortune to be the heirs of this wonderful cultural heritage of our land, which upholds universal love and acceptance, and which confers supreme place and importance to the ascetic life!
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.
