Question: Is the self-consciousness that we discover the same as God-realisation?

Sri Chinmoy: If we discover the self-consciousness that we keep only to ourselves, this self-consciousness is only the discovery of the ego. But if we discover the consciousness which is universal and transcendental, then naturally we have realised God.
