17 Anathema

Madal: Chinmoy, I am sure no disciple of yours drinks liquor, for alcohol is anathema to you.

Chinmoy: Madal, you are right. No true disciple of mine will ever drink liquor. It is not true that drinking is something detested by me, but I do feel that liquor is extremely harmful to the body and to the subtle nerves. That is why my disciples abstain from alcohol.
