Question: What about the place of women in the spiritual life at this time of "women's liberation" and all that? What is the woman's real place in a spiritual sense and a man's real place?Sri Chinmoy: In God's Eye, there is no man, there is no woman. In God's Eye they are one. Man is the face; woman is the smile. Without the face, how can there be a smile? Again, if there is no smile, what good is the face? So both are equally important.
