“The Yogi is regarded as superior to those who practice ascetism, also to those who have obtained wisdom (through the shastras). He is also superior to the performers of action, (enjoined in the Vedas) therefore, be thou a Yogi, O Arjuna”. – Gita VI-46

Kanwarram never got a formal education like schoolchild. He got a religious education from the childhood. He was a wonder child, born and brought up with wonder, grew up under the spell of the Saints and holy men.

‘Both in perception and discernment, first
In every capability of rapture,
Through the divine effect of power and love,
As more than anything we know, instinct
With God head, and by reason and by will,
Acknowledging dependency sublime.

– Wordsworth
