Questions and answers

These questions were asked at the New York Centre Church on 1 May 1977

Question: In the pictures I take of you blessing people I see you blessing them at various places on their heads. Are you giving them different types of blessings?

Sri Chinmoy: Usually, when I put my finger on the third eye, I try to open it a little — whatever it can — because the third eye in most cases is rusty and dusty. So I try my best.

When I bless on the top of the head, I try to raise the person’s consciousness to the highest possible height for him.

When I bless someone on the back of the head, I try to make that seeker see how good he was once upon a time and how bad he has become, or to show him how bad he was once upon a time, and how good he has become.

These are the main reasons for blessing at different places. There can be other occult reasons, but these are the usual ones.
