Question: Is it possible to obtain spiritual realisation through some other process besides meditation?

Sri Chinmoy: Yes, through prayer you can also do it. In the Western world, people give more importance to prayer than to meditation. If you find it difficult to meditate, then you can pray. In the West it is very easy to pray, because right from the beginning people are taught to pray in church and at home. So if you pray most soulfully, then you are bound to realise God.
