Question: How can India retain its spirituality as it moves into the modern materialistic world?Sri Chinmoy: If you want to, you can maintain your consciousness even if you enter into a fish market. No matter where you go, you can keep your consciousness high provided you place your consciousness on the Supreme. If you are seeing the shrine and meditating on the living deity inside your heart, you can maintain your pristine spirituality no matter where you go.
