Question: Guru, if some disciples regularly leave the Centre meditations before prasad, is it all right?

Sri Chinmoy: How long is the meditation?

Disciple: The whole programme takes one and a half or two hours.

Sri Chinmoy: If the whole programme is two hours, and they stay for two hours of meditation, recitation and other things and they do not want to take prasad, let them go. Those who stay can take more prasad!

Unfortunately, here in New York some disciples who have been with us for many years disappear after one hour. They never take prasad. I am happy that the people in your Centre spend two hours at the meditations.
