In this satsang, Ma tells us how the close association with a realized soul is extremely beneficial and conducive for seekers to transform their being and realize the ultimate goal.
A jnani acts and interacts with the world just like any normal person, but inwardly anchored in Brahma Nishta. With the mind naturally steeped in samatva, he attends to everything without any preference or prejudice, just like a child. Ma says, one must observe how a knower behaves, talks and deals with people, how the mind is taintless like the sky and full of love for everyone. Whatever are the characteristics observed in the Knower, cultivation of those characteristics becomes the sādhana for a seeker.
Ma exhorts us to fine tune our attitude towards all actions and emotions. Instead of denying any event or situation, one must welcome them wholeheartedly with the aspiration to get enriched, elevated and strengthened by them - to ultimately become fulfilled in life.

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.
