Question: What is the light that you sometimes let me see right in front of your mouth when you smile?

Sri Chinmoy: If you see light around the mouth, that means darkness has been devoured. Disciples have brought darkness, so I have entered into the darkness and, like a thirsty person, I have drunk voraciously. When I drink darkness voraciously, then there is a tremendous victory for the light. And right after I have devoured darkness, then inside you or somebody else, or in the earth-atmosphere, you see a kind of satisfaction. When we drink poison, it means that poison will not disturb our dear ones, so it is a tremendous victory and a tremendous relief. The smile is the sense of relief and a kind of real satisfaction that comes from devouring darkness.
