Although I am sure that this is my Path and I get intense joy in my heart from my devotion to You and Mother, sometimes I feel a strong longing for a quiet, monastic life. Where does that longing come from and if it has a negative origin, how can I best overcome it?
Is the longing for achieving Nirvana, that is, the total annihilation of the soul-existence, instead of aspiring for the ever-transcending manifestation of the Divine on earth, also an attitude of the deceptive vital?
Guru, I wish to share with you an experience I had a few weeks ago. It was an afternoon while I was taking a bath in the river near my house. A voice seemed to call out my name. As I searched for the direction of the sound, a Christ-like figure was sort of delineated in my mind, yet my heart welcomed the vision by saying: "Brother Jesus, I do not need you, your brother Chinmoy is my Master."

Sometimes the more I realise the benefit that the activity will give me, the more the resistance presents itself. Why?
Of all the undivine qualities that I have, there are two that bother and worry me most: impurity and lack of patience that brings bad temper to me. When we come to meditate with you and you look into our souls, do you get a general feeling of impurity or negativity, or do you know exactly if it has been bad temper or impurity?
