In this talk, Nutan Swamiji elucidates the importance of rituals as well as the upanishadic knowledge, described in the Vedas.
While it is the realization of Supreme Truth which brings everlasting happiness, the reality is that an overwhelming majority of population is not fit or interested in taking up spiritual enquiry. One has to cultivate good virtues, purify the mind, emotions and buddhi inorder to pursue the final goal. The vedic rituals when performed in accordance to prescriptions, are intended to discipline, purify and transform our personality.
Swamiji tells us that all yagas, yajnas or worship are intended to inculcate these virtues alone. Without them the knowledge will remain like a picture of fire, it will not serve any practical purpose. So, the rituals in reality beautifully compliments the upanishadic declarations of vedas!
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.

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.
