Whenever we begin to interact with the external world, we find that we completely forget the supreme Truth and identify ourselves with the body-mind personality. This wrong identification results in the feeling of 'I'-ness and 'Mine'-ness, likes and dislikes and we ultimately suffer because of it. Ma reminds us that as Spiritual Seekers, the whole aim of our sadhana is to remain established in the Self.
While we are awake, there is no scope for remaining inactive. So Ma tells us that every activity of ours should be performed for the purity of mind and intelligence alone - to remove the feeling of doer-ship and enjoyer-ship. The truth is that the entire world including our body and mind is a display of God. So giving up all possessiveness and desires, we should offer all our actions as a worship to God - just like the Gopikas of Vrindavan!

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.
