Sri M Thoughts

You don’t have to leave home to surrender. My Guru would say if you meditate in a cave for 13 hoursaily for 13 years, how do you know you have overcome anger or jealousy? You cannot be jealous of a weed that is growing in a cave.
Only when you get on a bus and someone kicks you, you will know how much of your anger you have been able to control.
Control is learnt in this world, amongst people.
It is true that the mind needs rest, for if it is occupied with small things, it cannot soar. But you can rest even in a crowd. That is surrender which makes the Stitha pragya or person of equanimity.
Sri M, as he is popularly known, is a social activist, educationist and a crusader for inter-religious harmony with a deep knowledge of world religions.
