Mr. Schonfeld: Sri Chinmoy, I didn't notice today at your meeting any collection of money or anything like that. How do you make a living?Sri Chinmoy: Collection is forbidden at all my Centres. When I go to Britain, if I ask them first for food stamps and then I tell them I am going to give them Peace, Light and Bliss, they will just turn away. Fortunately, I do have sincere, devoted students who meet with my outer expenses and my outer needs. I meet with their inner needs. I help them in their meditation.
