During a 1990 boat trip with his students in Berlin, Sri Chinmoy answers questions on the topics of purity and patience. In particular, Sri Chinmoy talks about the importance of patience in cultivating spirituality – making reference to his own childhood.

“How do you get purity? There are many, many ways to get purity, to create purity, to increase purity.

The easiest way is to look at a flower and feel that a flower is inside your heart. Nothing can be purer than a flower. You try to feel the flower inside your heart and afterwards you try to feel the flower that is inside your heart has grown into your heart itself.”

– Sri Chinmoy, (excerpt from video. Unofficial transcript)
