Can the materialistic man be spiritual?

Following is an excerpt from a samvaad (dialogue) session with Acharya Prashant.

Questioner: Can a totally materialistic man is spiritual?

Acharya Prashant: The emphasis, then, will not be on ‘materialistic’, but on ‘totally’. The totality is important.

Totally, if you are anything, then you are spiritual. The totality itself is spirituality.
