"Self-realization is meant to ensure fulfilment for one’s own self. It is not reaching somewhere or getting at something external, like going to the peak of a mountain. The attainment is in dissolving the mind and intelligence, and getting into the very core of oneself. In other words, it is like multiplying everything with zero."

This discourse by Swami Nirviseshananda Tirtha is based on Narayanageeta -- notes taken by Baba Gangadhara Paramahamsa (Poojya Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha's Gurudev), at the satsangs of his Param Gurudev, Swami Narayana Tirtha. Baba has described 'surrender' (sharanaagati) as the Fifth Purushaartha. Swami Nirviseshananda Tirtha explains how to develop true surrender, how it works on our mind and how when we really surrender we become self-sufficient, confident and unaffected in any situation. This discourse was conducted during 10th Sreemad Bhaagavata Tattva Sameeksha Satram in Kerala in 2011.)
In this short video, Poojya Swami Nirviseshananda Tirtha ji explains what prayer is and its benefits. The prayer may be directed to anyone or any powers that may be, but ultimately it is directed to the inmost Self within us. Prayer bestows upon us purity, which is fundamental to the success of the saadhana.
