Question: How are we to combat the obscure, dark emotions which wrack the world today?

Sri Chinmoy: There is only one way to deal with these. We must feel that the world is not around us or in front of us, but deep within us; therefore, we have to try to achieve our own purification and the transformation of our nature. The more we are inwardly purified and transformed, the sooner the world's transformation will take place.
