Question: How important is peace in transforming our human nature?Sri Chinmoy: It is light that is of paramount importance in transforming our human nature. But if we do not have peace of mind, we shall not be in a position to invoke light. If we are anxiety-stricken, we will always remain a victim to negative forces. Then how are we going to involve light? Again, if we have light, then we have peace. Peace and light are inseparable but if you want to know which brother is more important for the radical transformation of human nature, then I have to say that it is light.
