Proper Intellect is a discourse given by Shrii Shrii Anandamurti on 1978 August 24 in Patna, India. This discourse is the 22nd chapter of Ananda Vacanamrtam Part 1.[1]

Synopsis

There should be only one prayer on the part of human beings – that their intellect might be guided along the right path. If the intellect is reformed, everything is attained. If the intellect goes astray, nothing is attained, even by attaining everything.

Shrii Shrii Anandamurti

In this discourse Anandamurti is clarifying that if one is to ask for anything at all, then one may ask for a buddhi (intellect) guided along the path of blessedness. We meditate upon the Supreme so that our minds will be guided toward Him and Him alone. If the intellect is awry, obtaining a great deal will ultimately amount to nothing.[1]
