Question: Guru, I would like to ask about ex-disciples. How can we know if somebody is not favourable towards us?

Sri Chinmoy: You have ears; you have eyes. With your ears you will hear if somebody is speaking ill of our way of life, and you have eyes to see their conduct. Either you yourself will see it, or you will hear about it from your friends. Your friends should tell you. By this time you should know where people stand. You will not run after them; you will not chase them. And if you hear that some ex-disciples are not in favour of us, please be careful. If you know that somebody is criticising us, then you have every right to stop associating with that person.
