As a student, is it important to focus on studies or should one be more devoted towards God?
Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji:
There should be an balanced mix of both. While you concentrate on your studies and prepare yourself for your future, you also need God's grace. The simplest way to invoke God's grace is by chanting the Mahamantra whenever you have time. So, chant the Mahamantra regularly in the mornings and evenings along with your regular prayers, and concentrate well on your studies.
