Nolini da (Shri Nolini Kant Gupta) ranks among the foremost disciples of Sri Aurobindo. He had the rarest of privilege to have been with Sri Aurobindo right from the revolutionary days. We take up one of his essays on the New Humanity, of which he was surely one.
Broad and bright as the sun the message for India is written in the twofold momentousness that marks August 15.
November 24 is known as the Day of Victory, for, on it, Sri Aurobindo had the experience which promised complete fulfilment of his vision. It is significant that the last living darshan he granted was precisely on this day and in spite of grave obstacles. He declared through the occasion that his life was victorious, no matter what the appearance soon after.
An article by Amal Kiran, originally appeared in Mother India, November 1974.

Prof Ashok Aklujkar speaks on how the books written on history by K.D. Sethna—‘Ancient India in a New Light’ and ‘Problems of Ancient India’ gave a different chronology of ancient India with remarkable insights into the specific topic of the dating of the Ashokan edicts.
“… none can serve as a third Guru in the domain of so rare a reach of Divine Consciousness. Neither did Nolini ever claim to be such. But nobody deserved as richly as he to be a potent helper on the way… He has also figured admirably as a guardian of the Ashram by his wide reputation for deep mystical experience and a many-sided wisdom.”
“…It is only divine Love which can bear the burden I have to bear, that all have to bear who have sacrificed everything else to the one aim of uplifting earth out of its darkness to the Divine” – from a letter of Sri Aurobindo, 1934
Amal Kiran (K D Sethna), one of foremost disciples of Sri Aurobindo and The Mother, replies to questions and answers, as well as recites a fragment from Savitri. Recorded in 1971.
“…the transcendent and universal person of the Divine conforms itself to our individualised personality and accepts a personal relation with us …as our Master, Friend, Lover, Teacher, our Father and our Mother, our Playmate in the great world-game…”
The offered talk on Supramental Body gives a rare glimpse at Amal-da’s interpretation of this profound future development, which was predicted and described by Sri Aurobindo and The Mother, but is very difficult to grasp. The talk was recorded in 1971, and we are not aware of any printed transcript.
