Question: Since suffering is all around us, does it not contribute something to the soul?

Sri Chinmoy: No, suffering does not contribute anything to the soul. We do not go into the light through darkness and suffering; instead, the light transforms our darkness and suffering. The soul overcomes all suffering when it is enlightened.
