BELGAUM: Spending time with persons from different walks of life and social strata will mould one's personality said Sri Sri Ravishankar of the Art of Living. 

Speaking during the Guruvandana programme of Sri Murugharajendra Swami of Jidaga Mugalkod organized by Yallaling Swami of the Bruhanmath at the district Balbhavan here on Sunday, Sri Sri Ravishankar said, "If people spend a day with farmers in agriculture fields, with prisoners in jail, with patients in hospital and students in school, they can understand the society better. Apart from this, spending time in ashram by doing mediation will definitely keep people in good health." 

The seer also lauded the contribution of mutts to the society. "Mutts have done to the society more than what politicians have done," he said. Three former chief ministers Dharam Singh, HD Kumaraswamy and BS Yeddyurappa were also part of Guruvandana programme. Dharam Singh who spoke on the occasion said, "Mugalkod mutt is a different mutt. It is a secular mutt, not restricted to any particular caste." 

On the occasion Sri Sri Ravishankar was honoured with Siddashri award. The award comprises Rs one lakh, gold medal and a silver crown. 

Sri Sri Ravishankar also took part in the mass marriage of 101 couples and inauguration of central of building of the mutt.
