Questions and answers

The following questions were asked at the New York Sri Chinmoy Centre on 10 July 1976.

Question: What is the spiritual nature of the Bicentennial?

Sri Chinmoy: Only the Sacred Fire has brought forward the spiritual side of America’s Bicentennial. Other groups — even church groups and spiritual groups — don’t see any spirit behind it or create any spiritual atmosphere. If there is any true spirituality, any divine spirit behind this Bicentennial celebration, then I wish to say it has come from our Sacred Fire activities from the beginning to the end.
