Question: If we feel elated or depressed and we don't know why, can there be an inner reason for it?Sri Chinmoy: There is always a reason, but the mind has not grasped it. Sometimes outwardly we do not know the reason, but something has actually taken place to cause it. Sooner or later we will get the reason on the mental plane.
