Sri M Sayings

Bhakti or devotion cannot be understood by intellect alone. Bhakti goes where the intellect cannot reach. It is something the heart accesses. Everything in life cannot be rationalized or put into structures. When we understand this something thing will happen.

It took ten chapters for Sri Krishna to speak of Bhakti to Arjuna. So Bhakti is not so easy to practice or understand. It is only when you feel true and sincere Bhakti you can hope to experience the divine.
Who is a good devotee? One who wishes everyone well; he is the good devotee. The one who can see the divine in every other being is the good devotee.
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.
