Question: We know that the United States is very powerful militarily and politically on the world horizon. In God’s scheme of things, what is the role of the United States in the evolution of mankind’s spiritual development?

Sri Chinmoy: Militarily and politically the United States is very powerful. Your statement is perfectly true. In the Supreme Pilot’s scheme of things, the United States is going to play the role not so much of leadership as of friendship, nay, brotherhood, in mankind’s evolution. And evolution is another name for mankind’s spiritual development.
