Question: What role does peace play in our evolution?

Sri Chinmoy: Peace plays a most considerable role in the evolution of a human being because peace means satisfaction. Only when we are satisfied can we make progress. If there is no satisfaction, there will be no progress. Satisfaction itself is an indication of progress because if I have made no progress, I will not be satisfied. But satisfaction will not be our ultimate achievement. Pleasing the Supreme in the Supreme’s own way will be our ultimate achievement. So in peace we make progress and in progress we have peace.
