"Be it a sacred saligrama or a broomstick, both are equally effective as tools in one's spiritual training", instructs Sri Jayalakshmi Mata, the mother and guru of His Holiness Sri Sri Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji, to her young 11 year old son, Satyanarayana. "In this Maha Yajna (Profound Ritual), called the Wheel of Life, each is given a duty to perform, the person's Swadharma. Performing that perfectly is in itself spiritual training. For a housewife, to manage her household efficiently is a Yajna. She does it because it is the purpose of her life and she is required to fulfill it. She should not care about others recognizing or praising her efforts." She also describes the magnificent spiritual scope and purpose of the incarnation of Lord Dattatreya as her son. Upasana=worship; Japa=chanting mantra or God's name repeatedly; Santarpana=feast (given at the successful conclusion of a spiritual austerity). The healing music heard in the background is from one of Sri Swamiji's concerts. These episodes are based on 'Ganapathy Sachchidananda' - a biography of Sri Swamiji written in Telugu by Sri Kuppa Krishnamurthy.
