A seeker on the path of realizing Brahman, finding changefulness as the very basis of creation and finding everything to be perishable, quickly develops dispassion towards the objective universe. Knowing well that the 'causeless' - Ultimate Truth, cannot be obtained by performing any action, his entire focus shifts from doing to Knowing.
Nutan Swamiji enlightens us that gaining mere theoretical knowledge is not Realization. This is a knowledge of our own Real Identity - it has to be directly experienced and lived. So, the seeker has to approach a Guru and seek his guidance to realize the Supreme Truth.
To such a seeker who is anxious to know the Truth, who is desireless and who has approached him with humility, the Guru gives refuge. Ever established in Brahman and having crossed the worldly ocean himself, the Guru, out of mercy, imparts the essence of Brahmavidya to the seeker and helps him cross the ocean of samsara!
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.
