Question: Do you expect to go back someday?

Sri Chinmoy: It may happen. I have no expectation, no anticipation. I only live in the Eternal Now. Just at this moment if I get a command from Him, then I will be more than happy to go to the foot of the Himalayas or live inside a Himalayan cave, which I did in some of my previous incarnations.

My life is now a life of service. If the Supreme asks me to be of service here or in any other part of the world, then I shall gladly do it. I do whatever He wants from my life. I have no personal choice. It is He who is manifesting in and through us in His own way. When one becomes a seeker, he realises that he is a mere instrument and the Supreme Musician is playing on that instrument. But if he becomes a conscious instrument, then the Supreme Musician can utilise him fully in the best possible way.
