Question: When a child incarnates into a family, is it possible that the child’s soul is less highly evolved than the parents’ souls?

Sri Chinmoy: Sometimes the parents are inferior, far inferior to the children, and at other times the parents are superior. But just as in the outer world parents try to make their children wise and well-educated, in the inner world, if parents pray and meditate on their children, the children will make progress and grow.
