32 Bestial

Madal: Chinmoy, in the past some Indian spiritual Masters were almost bestial. I simply cannot imagine how they could behave in that way towards their spiritual children. Please tell me why they were like that.

Chinmoy: Madal, unfortunately even now there are some Eastern and Western spiritual Masters who are extremely cruel and violent to their children. It is, as you said, incredible. However, the reason is very simple. These spiritual Masters do not care for the transformation of their own nature at all. A Yogi without the transformation of his outer nature will be able to manifest only very little of his inner divinity on earth.
