Celebrating the Centenary of Sri Aurobindo’s arrival in Pondicherry on April 4, 1910.
Since this morning there is a warm intoxication fringed with cooler peace. What is this simultaneous experience of the two contraries?
It is the Agni and the peace together.
Why do I have a station in the forehead centre instead of in the heart?
The station in the heart centre is for the psychic opening. What you are at present doing is the upward opening to the Self and for that the inner mind centre is the proper station.
We started with the necessity and inevitability of death. Let us end with the certainty of the end of death and of all that it so far stands for; the end of ignorance and falsehood and with it the end of evil and suffering and pain.
The Soul and Nature are two poises of One Truth. Indeed Prakriti is the power of the Purusha. She builds for the soul the instruments needed for their play and gives the experiences necessary for the growth and fullness of the evolving soul in creation. This evolving soul is a portion of the Jivatma sent down into the bounds of Time and Space for the replicating the truth of Iswara and Shakti here, in the conditions of matter and earthly life.
In the perfect silence of my contemplation all widens to infinity, and in the perfect peace of that silence Thou appearest in the resplendent glory of Thy Light.

“Well, his body did not seem to be made of flesh and bone but of some ethereal substance, so supple, so elastic, so resilient that nothing offered any resistance to it. It could pass through like a beam of the invisible light.”
Without the emptiness there can be no fullness.
How is it possible to have fullness and emptiness at the same time?
I meant that in the higher consciousness that simultaneous experience was quite natural. It is the same with complete rest and full activity, — experience of infinite impersonality and of the true person. All these (and many other things also) are to the mind incompatible, but in the higher consciousness they go together.
A talk by Dr Alok Pandey at the Stress and Growth Seminar, organised by SACAR and NAMAH in Pondicherry in Sept 2017.
I am greater than the greatness of the seas,
A swift tornado of God-energy:
A helpless flower that quivers in the breeze,
I am weaker than the reed one breaks with ease.
A weekly sharing on Savitri by Alok Pandey (an audio recording in English).
Today I felt as if someone other than myself was carrying out my actions. Of course I was there, but in the background. Was it not the Mother’s Force?
What you say amounts only to some glimpse of the cosmic Force behind all the actions.
A talk and an interview by Georges van Vrekhem on Integral Yoga from 1998 and 2004, respectively.
As of now, Death is a temporary release from earthly joys and suffering; the joy that ends too soon into its opposite, the suffering that necessarily follows when the immortal soul assumes the mask of imperfection, ignorance and limitation. It will drop off and cease to exist when all life will become a wave of the Supreme Ananda.
