Here are some of Sri Chinmoy‘s thoughts on these subjects:

POLITICS AND SPIRITUALITY
“Spirituality
Can enter into politics.
Spirituality
Does not dismiss politics.
Politics can claim spirituality.
Likewise,
Spirituality can claim politics.
Politics and spirituality
Are branches of the same life-tree,
And this life-tree
Is all oneness-peace.
Spirituality is the heart.
Politics is the body.
These two are at once
Interdependent
And indispensable to each other.
The body is the flower.
The heart is the fragrance.
The flower charmingly reminds us
Of our universal beauty. v The fragrance breathlessly reminds us
Of our transcendental divinity…”
-Sri Chinmoy
