Poojya Swamiji beautifully chants and explains the four scintillating verses of Abhijnana Shakuntalam written by the great poet Kalidasa - reminding us that these verses contain in them the entire culture of our motherland. After all, it is only the pure heart of a human being, which can voice out the deeply ingrained values and qualities of our cultural heritage.
Swamiji eloquently describes the compassionate and selfless nature of the Ascetic heart, which melts at the very sight of another's grief. For them, their entire life is a service to fulfill the need of others. They have no hesitation or lack in doing whatever is needed at the right time - as amply demonstrated by Kanva Maharshi in accepting and taking care of the abandoned child Shakuntala. The willingness shown by sage Vyasa to keep aside his vow of celibacy inorder to meet the emergent need of Kuru Dynasty also reveals to us the lofty dimensions of the Ascetic mind!
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.
