"Let not world-objects be your mind’s master. Let them be, if at all, subservient to the mind. To be spiritual is not to look for one’s delight and fulfillment in the objects of the world. The mind that causes delight through any object can also provide delight without such an object. Delight in reality belongs to the mind alone. It is verily mind’s own gift."

One significant aspect of Swamiji's Loka-sangraha is the religio-cultural revolution brought about in Kerala by organizing mass-movements to stop some of the age-old derogatory and superstitious practices prevailing in the name of religious rituals and festivals.

Besides freeing some famous temples from barbarous or vulgar indulgences, and removing from some others the unfair caste discrimination, these movements have wrought a revolutionary change in the attitude of people by cultivating a rational view - supported fully by the scriptures - towards the socio-religious practices.

The Various Religious Reforms:
