All that is found in the higher states is recreated here as its dark imitation, thereby trapping the fallen beings in a web of lies and propaganda, mixed with terror and fear and the perverted joy of a fallen state.
Dr Alok Pandey meets with students of Gopinathpur, Odisha, in 2018. The talk is about some of the important questions we must ask and see how their answers change.
Is it not possible to know the universe in its reality as it is in itself, independently of the observer or thinker?
Yes, there is a way: it is by identification. But obviously it is a means which eludes absolutely all physical methods.

Aswapati now reveals to us how Darkness and Hell have a hold on the human consciousness and influence our lives, creating here too a reign of Hell. Sri Aurobindo reveals to us what really is Evil and how it operates under the garb of organized religions and creeds.
After two days of the higher state, inertia comes, covering up my consciousness. Then the restlessness becomes so overwhelming that I cannot even meditate. Can nothing be done to prevent this reaction?
The peace and silence have to come into the physical and replace the inertia.
Sri Rama and Sri Krishna are fulfilled in Sri Aurobindo, as with this New Force is the power to transform the animal in us into a vehicle of the Divine Force and convert the Asura in us through the one and only all-powerful agency of the Divine Mother’s Love.
