Om Sathguru Shri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae
A Mast is a God-intoxicated soul. Such a person is often, in his own individual way, in earnest search of God, or Truth, as the unfailing inward directive power. He is sincerely and wholeheartedly devoted to the Truth as it comes to him; he is divinely mad in search of eternal values. He has decided to take stakes in his desire to realize God. Such a person is not mad in the ordinary sense; he is desperately in love with God, and is known as a MAST.
