Questions and answers on the soul, part II

Question: Does the soul cry when it is unhappy?

Sri Chinmoy: No. The real soul which is a portion of the Cosmic Self is all Delight. Since it cannot be unhappy in the human sense of the term, it does not cry. It is the unsatisfied and demanding vital, which we often take for the soul, that suffers unhappiness and cries pitifully.
