Question: When an Avatar or a realised Master is in a human body, what's the limitation of the knowledge available to him. I'm not asking about occult power, but normally, in day-to-day life with his disciples, how much does he know?

Sri Chinmoy: I do not know how many calories or vitamins you take each day. These things I don't have to know at all. But in a second I can ask your soul whether you are properly nourished or not. The soul will be able to tell me just as a bird will be able to tell if his cage is beautiful and strong enough. Inside the cage is the bird, and if I ask the bird whether it is satisfied with the cage, if the cage is in proper form, then if the bird is not satisfied immediately it will tell me.
