Question: According to the government of this country, are you considered a religion? Do you pay taxes or are you tax-exempt like a church?

Sri Chinmoy: Ours is not a religion; as I said before, ours is a path. We are heading towards a destination and you are also doing the same; only we are walking along different roads. But to come back to your question, ours is a tax-exempt, non-profit organisation.
