It is often much easier and faster to act upon the illness from outside than from within. While doing so may be ‘natural’ for us, we should not be led to believe that it is the only or the complete way. What most of ‘treatment’ in modern medicine does very often is to put a check upon the symptoms.
Man …. wishes to be dazzled in order that he may see. And this impatience, this ignorance may turn into a great danger and disaster if …. we call in another distorting Force more satisfying to our impulses and desires and ask it to guide us and give it the Divine Name.
Study Camp we are concluding today marks the tenth year of our collective yajna in the form of the study of Savitri. I feel that the Divine Mother has amply rewarded our tapasya (askesis) by bringing into existence Savitri Bhavan and many, many receptive minds and hearts in Auroville.
Describing the atmosphere of the life heavens, Sri Aurobindo now gives us a glimpse of the high heavens of Beatitude and Bliss that border on the Empire of the Sun.

A weekly sharing on Savitri by Dr Alok Pandey (an audio recording in English).
In every age of mankind there have been great beings, luminous Masters who have shown the Path towards the Divine. This time the Divine coming as the Mother forged a new bond between the seeker and the Master.
