Immediately behind this world of ours, we can discover the world of subtle forms, beautiful and charming. Sometimes it can show up in dreams or trance or even in thought and feelings. But our human organs are not yet trained to catch its murmur and subtle indications.
Behind the veil of our solid outer world and its forms that we see and touch there exists a Kingdom of subtle matter. It is this world that is just behind this material world as we know it, its beings and forces and action, function and influences, that is being described here in this Canto.
A weekly sharing on Savitri by Dr Alok Pandey (an audio recording in English).
An obedience from hope of gain or reward, or from fear of loss or punishment, is of little use. We must consciously and willingly offer our obedience to Thee, Mother. Thus, we shall grow into Thy own self, and our obedience will be ultimately merged in a blissful harmony and identification with Thee.
Ashramites, who participated in Auroville’s inauguration on Feb 28, 1968, share their memories. A video by Manohar (AV).
The Mother’s physical presence had come to an end, but the foundation for a new creation has been laid and whosoever is today living on earth, participates in it, whether he knows it or not, whether he wants it or not.
Savitri enters the gates of subconscient world and steps into the Night. There is threat and dread everywhere in that state where space collapses and time dissolves. But Savitri stays firm within her soul.
A talk by Dr. Sampadananda Mishra at the “LIVING WITHIN” Study Camp No 43, jointly organised by SACAR and NAMAH in April 2018
The proof of a higher consciousness comes from living experience of countless mystics, saints and seers. But the higher consciousness has not yet stabilized and generalised itself in humanity. Though individuals have time and again experienced these dimensions, for the vast majority it is still in the realm of possibility.
The voice of Night drew a response from the heights. This greater voice cautions Savitri as also reveals to her the great secret that will enable her to conquer or rather be conquered entirely and utterly by the greater Truth Above.
You wrote about the lower forces: “In the working out sometimes they rise, sometimes they disappear.” Cannot the lower forces be worked out easily in their own field without their rising up and disturbing the whole being?
I am not aware of any case in which the lower forces did not rise up. If such a case occurred I fancy it would be the first in human history.
A response by Dr. Mangesh Nadkarni to a letter seeking answers to questions regarding the impact of Relics on the larger collective atmosphere.
The Mother and Sri Aurobindo have given an entirely new sense to the yoga. Vast and complex in its all-inclusive totality, its process remains easy and simple. Today we shall take up one aspect of just one dimension of this yoga, the physical yoga.
Gold in the mind and the life-flame’s red
Make of the heavens a splendour, the earth a blaze,
But the white and rose of the heart are dead.
Flame-wind, pass! I will wait for Love in the silent ways.
