“The Ever-Living Presence” Part 03/10 The Two Goals

Questions such as did They complete Their Work etc are absurd in the first place. To begin with, we as a human race did not even know that there is such a Work undertaken by the Divine; that creation has a grand purpose and is on the road to its fulfilment. We became aware only because They shared it with us and they shared it so that we can consciously collaborate and have the joy of participating.

Weekly Readings in Savitri – an Invitation to a Journey

“… [Savitri], a revelation coming from the very highest summits of consciousness and embodying the sublimest and subtlest Wisdom and Power, is best received as a gift of Grace. It cannot be the subject of mental analysis and speculation, for the Truth it embodies comes from far above the mind. Hence we do not intend to offer any ‘explanations’ or ‘analytical understanding’ of Savitri through these pages.”

The Ever-Living Presence Part 02/10 Beyond Birth and Death

The Avatara leads, humanity follows; the Avatara builds the bridge, humanity walks over it. When the intended work is done, the Avatara withdraws behind so that humanity may prepare itself for the great walk. He does not die but simply withdraws just a step behind the curtain of material life. Blind are they who believe that the Avatara is no more. Even great Masters are not subject to Death.

The Ever-Living Presence Part 01/10 The Touch Divine upon Earthly Life

“If there is one joy that earthly beings can experience which is coveted even by the gods, it is the joy of feeling the touch of the embodied Incarnate Divine. This unparalleled joy is given to earth and humanity as a saving Grace….. This special Grace is given to Earth since unlike other gods and goddesses, she alone has chosen to submit herself to the great evolutionary adventure.”

Darshan Days at the Ashram – a Brief History and Significance

Coming to Darshan proper in its original sense, some people wonder why is it so difficult to see the Lord, the Divine who is the sole Omnipresent Reality behind appearances? It is clearly not a fault of the Deity within but a limitation of our own organ of sight. It is difficult for us even to behold the sun in our solar system except during sun rise and sunset…

The Mother

The mystery and magic of Sri Aurobindo’s life remains incomplete without mentioning the wonder whom the world knows now as the Mother.

A Brief Note on Sri Aurobindo

The details of Sri Aurobindo’s outer life are rather well-known and easy to search and find. But these outer details, informative though they are, do not tell us much about the person. They create an image, much like a mirror creates an image that captures the form but the essence, the soul escapes our discovery. Read More

What is Yoga

Yoga means union with the Divine, or for those who are afraid of the word, union with the eternal Perfection that is enclosed within and discloses itself over long unending Time. All creation is in fact a slow unfolding of this ‘Perfection’ that hides in our depths and as our seed and core, Source and Base. We search in through the events and experiences of our life, we seek through all our longings and hopes and aspirations. It is a slow and laborious process stretching through many centuries of earth-time and many lives lived in and experienced in different bodies, countries and climes.

Spiritual, Religious and Personal Beliefs

If we earnestly pursue the search for the spiritual dimension of man (and his health), we find ourselves far removed from current ideas on the subject. Firstly, we must understand the spiritual dimension as consciousness entirely different from the mind, as well as moral, ethical and religious values. The moral and religious state of mind Read More
