In 1989, Sri Chinmoy gave an interview to Westchester Newsline where he talked about many aspects of meditation, spirituality and his endeavours for a more harmonious world. In this excerpt from that interview, he explains that “It is the mind that divides, and the heart that unites. But we have been unfortunately using the mind infinitely more times than using our hearts.”

Sri Chinmoy is also asked about optimism and the inner source of man.
