In the eigen-basis (the basis formed by the complete set of eigen-vectors).

##M \hat{e}_k = \lambda_k {e}_k##

so ##M## must take the form of a diagonal matrix ##diag(\lambda_1,\lambda_2,\ldots,\lambda_n)##

If you cannot follow that then I suggest you simply do the math for a couple of concrete examples until it clicks.
