An interactive session with Dr Alok Pandey in Melbourne, Australia. Topics include the sense of I, Krishna, God’s play etc.
What does the future has in store for us? Certain events in our recent times may well indicate to us the working of the New Consciousness and the coming of the New Age. Yet humanity has to cover a large ground before we can be ready for the Promise of the Future.
This higher vital world is stirred by profound energies and forces sublime that draw their impulsion from some deep source. Yet it is a reflected Truth, not the One original Reality and Power.
You said, “What I write usually helps only the mind and that too very little, for people really do not understand what I write.”
It is because the mind by itself cannot understand things that are beyond it […] Each mind puts its own ideas in place of the Truth.
Practical aspects of human relationships and how to make them beautiful. We play with perceptions and thereby falsify the truth of our relationships.
A friend and yet too great wholly to know,
She walked in their front towards a greater light,
Their leader and queen over their hearts and souls,
One close to their bosoms, yet divine and far.
Death takes the position of the stark materialist who refuses to see what escapes the senses. He admits only what he can outwardly experience through the senses and declares all else as an imagination or a hallucination. He refuses to admit the soul, taking it to be just a figment of mental conception.
This book is a translation of a memoir written in Tamil by K. Amrita, an early disciple of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother. Amrita recounts the story of his childhood and student life, but always his central concern is his relationship with Sri Aurobindo and his efforts to come closer to him.

Death tries to twist the gospel of Peace to dissuade Savitri from changing the earthly laws. He uses truth to obstruct the coming of a greater Truth. But Savitri is determined. She knows her mission and calls the souls of the strong to this new Divine Work.
In this realm we find life turning towards higher and greater things than mere earthly existence or survival of the body.
The West has put its faith in its science and machinery and it is being destroyed by its science and crushed under its mechanical burden. It has not understood that a spiritual change is necessary for the accomplishment of its ideals. The East has the secret of that spiritual change, but it has too long turned its eyes away from the earth. The time has now come to heal the division and to unite life and the spirit.

“… spirituality is not a high intellectuality, not idealism, not an ethical turn of mind or moral purity and austerity, not religiosity or an ardent and exalted emotional fervour, not even a compound of all these excellent thing”
