Though creation appears to our senses as a number of separate objects hung in Space and connected through the play of Time, behind all its variations and multiplicity, there is the One. It is the One Reality that has become the Many. This is the great secret we are here to discover.

“Concentrate in the heart. Enter into it; go within and deep and far, as far as you can. […] A fire is burning there, in the deep quietude of the heart. It is the divinity in you — your true being. Hear its voice, follow its dictates.”
“… the Infinite, the Vast lies behind and at the heart of all, without it nothing can exist or move. That is the supreme agent for creation and new creation—the Grace Divine. All the different elements are but varied formulations of one and the same divine Creative Energy. Therefore the Vedic Rishi declares: It is all one single reality, the sages give it different names.”
The fourth conversation of the series
Dr Alok Pandey addresses a young audience at the Beach Office of Sri Aurobindo Society. Recorded in September 2017.
A Questions and Answers Session, following a talk by Dr Alok Pandey at the Workshop on Integral Counselling, 10-12 November 2017, at SACAR (Sri Aurobindo Centre for Advanced Research).
A day will come when the harmony shall be achieved and all the country shall be, by its very life, the bearer of Thy word and Thy manifestation. But meanwhile my pen is mute to chant Thy praise.
Aspiration is intense in the morning, then diminishes, and in the evening the consciousness becomes calm and quiet. Is this the rule in such matters?
It is quite usual to have such periods in the day. The consciousness needs time for rest and assimilation, it cannot be at the same pitch of intensity at all times.
“Passing, passing,” said Sri Sastriar twitching his brow. “Who passed away and where? Not certainly Sri Aurobindo. The Master оf Integral Yoga is here, as intensely and as concretely as ever.”
O worshipper of the formless Infinite,
Reject not form, what dwells in it is He.
Each finite is that deep Infinity
Enshrining His veiled soul of pure delight.
A prayer written by Kapali Sastry and recited by Vasanti Rao.
“Victory to Him, our Lord Sri Aurobindo, of entire parts!
Victory to the Sustainer of the worlds, the Mother Mira of white radiance!
To Their Integral Yoga all victory – may it manifest fully on earth!”
“I shall leave my dreams in their argent air,
For in a raiment of gold and blue
There shall move on the earth embodied and fair
The living truth of you.”
