115 Lugubrious

Madal: Chinmoy, there are some spiritual Masters who constantly think of and talk about their ex-disciples. Is this not a lugubrious pastime for them?

Chinmoy: Madal, it is true that it may be sad or overly mournful when the spiritual Masters talk of their ex-disciples. But one thing you do not know and perhaps will never know is that the souls of the ex-disciples cannot and do not leave the Masters so easily. That is why the sincere concern and compassion of the Masters extend to their ex-disciples.
