135 Perfunctory

Madal: Chinmoy, every day, being very busy, I meditate for fifteen minutes in a rather perfunctory manner. I wonder if my soul forgives me.

Chinmoy: Madal, your soul will forgive you, but a day will come when you will not be able to forgive yourself. If you meditate in a hasty and superficial way, your God-Realisation will always remain a far cry.
