Questions asked by Dulal, President of the New York Sri Chinmoy Centre
Question: Can true meditation ever become an escape from Reality?Sri Chinmoy: No, true meditation can never be an escape from reality, for true meditation is the real acceptance of life-reality. And it is only in the manifestation of the divine consciousness totally and integrally in the life-reality that God-Satisfaction can and will take place on earth.
