In this Satsang, Nutan Swamiji continues to enlighten us on the important role of the background stories in our scriptures. Swamiji tells us that these stories give us a vivid picture of the mental, intelligential and characteral dimensions of the persona - from where these statements are coming from - so that we can ruminate over it, absorb it and bring about transformation of our being.
The ultimate aim of the scriptures is to expand our mind and make it universal - to embrace the whole world as our own. Swamiji cautions us that unless we are graced by bhakti - a strong emotional association with the truth, the scriptural knowledge will remain fruitless and unfulfilled. Only when the knowledge is amply complemented by bhakti, one will discover absolute freedom and liberation!
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.
