The Mystique of ‘M’
Ever since, he has remained a beacon light to many who have been tossing about in spiritual darkness. Today, he is a highly welcome speaker at many fora in India and abroad, though he prefers to have smaller groups of people to share his wisdom with. And with this in view, and eagerly encouraged by his friend, he has set up the Satsang Foundation, the aim of which is to act as a meeting point for spiritual seekers of all persuasions. This may be the primary aim or function, but M has underscored an equally important function for the Foundation; that of extending a helping hand to the less privileged of our society, like the destitute old.
For, as he emphasises, unless spirituality is buttressed with seva, self-less service to others, it will be self-defeating. Knowing well that ideas do not go beyond the blueprint stage, M on his own initiative (and with money borrowed from banks) has already built a modest old-age home for the poor near his residence in Madanapalle in Chittoor district of Andhra Pradesh. Enthused by his example, the members of the Satsang Foundation are engaged in raising funds for an extensive old-age home.
