In this excerpt Sri Chinmoy talks about the significance of prayer – and how the inner light will one day illumine the present day darkness and difficulties we see all around us. Sri Chinmoy gives this short talk from his seated weightlifting platform.
“Our prayers, I strongly feel, are not going to end in vain… because the prayer that we do… the aspiring life that we have accepted…. The power of light will definitely illumine the darkness. Darkness tries to devour light, but light never devours. Light only illumines the darkness. You see at night how dark it is. Then, the day dawns, and the darkness disappears…”
