Question: Guru, do you remember when you gave us the daily prayers,2 you said that you were giving us an approach that was most compatible with the Western mind, which is "I must conquer, I must conquer."

Sri Chinmoy: We must conquer fear, doubt, jealousy — everything. Those prayers that I gave a few years ago, alas, alas, many of you do not do. Once again I am sincerely requesting you to offer those prayers on a daily basis.
