Question: What does power mean in the spiritual life?
Question: In the message for the New Year for 1974 you mention diving deep within. Could you please speak about that?
Question: Which is better: morning meditation or evening meditation?
Question: Can you tell us exactly what the psychic being is? Also, if it is useful for the aspirant to try to establish some kind of relationship with his psychic being, how can he do it?
Question: For the past year I have been practising concentration and meditation with my attention focused on my navel chakra. But I don't seem to be making as much progress as I would like in controlling my thoughts. Have you got any suggestions?
Question: Could you speak a little about the significance of dreams?
Question: What is the best way of obtaining peace in our inner life and in our outer life?
Question: Does the peace that you bring down during the meditations in the conference rooms have any effect on the delegates who do not attend these meetings?
Question: All around us we hear of wars and conflicts. I want to know if these conflicts are all part of the divine order?
Question: Sometimes when I meditate, I feel that I am about to go through some experience, but nothing happens. What is the cause of that?
Question: What is the difference between going high and going deep in meditation?
Question: Does the psychic being have certain fixed characteristics, like age, or does it grow and change along with the person?
Question: Is it right for spiritual Masters to take the suffering of their disciples? If the disciples do something bad and they do not suffer themselves, how will they learn the lesson?
Question: Does Christmas, the way it is celebrated, elevate the consciousness in any way?
Question: You have written an aphorism which says: "God is at once finite and infinite. He is space. He is beyond space. He is measured. He can be measured. He must needs be measured. He is measureless. He is boundless. He is infinite." Could you please explain this?
Question: Could you please tell us the best way to conquer the ego?
Appendix: these quotes, from other writings of Sri Chinmoy, were included in the first editions.
