Question: How can a person write a spiritual play?

Sri Chinmoy: First you have to read a few spiritual books. Then you pray to the Supreme to give you the necessary inspiration and necessary capacity. If you read a few spiritual plays, your physical mind will be trained to some extent on how to use the form of the play. That does not mean that you are copying somebody else’s play. No! You learn the style, the form, but form is not life; form is the body. Inside the body the soul has to come, spirit has to come. Then if you pray to the Supreme for the capacity, which is inspiration, when you get capacity you will already know the form. Then you have to give it spirit. In order to add spirit from above, you have to invoke the Light of the Supreme or invoke the Supreme. When spirit enters the form, it is like life entering the body.
