The Puppet, p. 162

There is in us a subconscious mind that acts stealthily in our actions. It is important to understand its mechanism. This forms part of the yogic knowledge necessary for action in the world as well as for the yoga of transformation.

Two Lines of Human Evolution – a satsang with Dr Alok Pandey

There are two lines of evolution along which humanity can advance. One is the Asuric line which is primarily towards the capacities of his mental, vital and physical life. Another is the line of the Devas, the godlike climb of man which is a change of human into a diviner, nobler human being.

Sri Aurobindo in Bengal, Part 22

Why should he bother about himself and what would happen to him when he knew in every fibre of his being that the Infinite Love had taken charge of him?

THE MOTHER’S SAVITRI: Book 2 Canto 7

Only were safe who kept God in their hearts:
Courage their armour, faith their sword, they must walk,
The hand ready to smite, the eye to scout,

The Victorious Power of Love (HH 101)

Words of the Mother: “You know, an ardent faith, a psychic aspiration, a fervor, a self-giving, instead of being forever turned in on oneself, turned in on oneself …. A self-giving, that’s what is needed to save the world! Mental faith isn’t enough, psychic fervor is necessary – self-giving, self-abnegation….”
