Love and Vairagyam

“a deep spiritual calm and peace that is the only stable foundation for a lasting Bhakti and Ananda. In that new consciousness there would be a new basis for relations with others; for an ascetic dryness or isolated loneliness cannot be your spiritual destiny […] Therefore do not be discouraged; wait upon the purifying movement of Shiva.”

A Cosmic Battle pp. 12-13

After giving us a brief account of the karmic law that holds in its grip all humanity by the noose of Ignorance, Sri Aurobindo reveals to us the secret that would liberate us from its clutches. But man cannot do it by himself. Savitri has come to open the doors to a New Power, a Power that has not yet manifested in creation.

“Too hard the gods are with man’s fragile race;
In their large heavens they dwell exempt from Fate
And they forget the wounded feet of man,
His limbs that faint beneath the whips of grief,
His heart that hears the tread of time and death.”

“Life’s meanings fled from the pursuing eye.
Life’s visage hides life’s real self from sight;
Life’s secret sense is written within, above.
The thought that gives it sense lives far beyond;
It is not seen in its half-finished design.
In vain we hope to read the baffling signs”

The Choice of Destiny, pp 423-425 (SH 219)

“Savitri has chosen Satyavan for her partner in the game of life. This choice has implications upon future that is yet sealed to human view. But there, in the court of King Aswapati, are seated two great beings – King, a yogi and seer, and Narada, the demigod, who has privy to the book of Fate. A brief exchange between three of them follows.”

7.2 Manipulating Human Nature

“Illness like suffering holds out before our sight the points that need to be shaped and reshaped under the transforming action of Grace. The final remedy also lies in this — to respond whole-heartedly to the pressure of transformation and to consent willingly in all our parts to the action of Grace.”
