Questions from children

Question: Gurudev, I want to ask you something. If I break an egg, can God put it together again?1

Sri Chinmoy: Certainly He can. God can do anything He wants.

Question: Can you do it?

Sri Chinmoy: No, sorry Shannon, your Gurudev cannot do it. But if God gives me the power, I can easily do it.

Question:Can I do it?

Sri Chinmoy: Why not? The moment God gives you the power, you can easily put a broken egg together again. A day will come when you, I and everyone will have the same power that God has now.
