In the domain of the Mind, Savitri encounters beings, representing different aspects of the higher mind of humanity. One of them approaches her, asking her to be part of his religion. But Savitri stops not, since what she is looking for is not a doctrine or belief system but her own soul.
What is the Yogic method of getting rid of a pain or illness?
To separate yourself from the thing and call in the Mother’s Force to cure it — or else to use your will force with faith in the power to heal, having the support of the Mother’s Force behind you. If you cannot use either of these methods then you must rely on the action of the medicines.
What difference is there between the human body and the body of a tree? In truth, there is none, the consciousness which animates them is identically the same.
Sri Aurobindo’s yoga makes many departures from traditional yogas, because with the experience and advent of the Supermind a new possibility opens for creation. It reveals that each and every element of creation not only has the Divine Presence within it but is actually moving towards a greater and greater divine becoming.
“In the greatness of a man, in music’s outspread wings, in a touch, in a smile,in a sound,
Something that waits, something that wanders and settles not, a Nothing that was all and is found.”
Nature demanded of [India] that she should discover a greater secret of human unity and through progressive experiments apply and establish it in fact.

A weekly sharing on Savitri by Alok Pandey (an audio recording in English).
Ignorance too is a mask of the Divine that He wears upon Himself for the play of multiplicity. The individual soul must go through it, until, growing from depth to depth of its own being, it discovers that We are That and that our individual Self and the Universal Self are one.
… when an impulse — desire for food or sex-urge or anything else — arises, should not one let it spread in full in oneself so that one might offer all of it to the Mother and aspire for its transmutation?
If you do that, the impulse may spread so far as to take hold of you and master you. If a wrong impulse comes, you must reject it as soon as you become aware of it.
The opening installment of the new series “The Creator and the Creation”
The fifth track from the “magnum opus” of Lucette Bourdin – the “Horse Heaven” album.
“A colloquy between the god of death and the spirit of Nachiketas, forms the quintessence of ancient Indian thought on the subject. It is symbolic that even Death can be persuaded to yield, even its inflexible law can change and its secret revealed if we know how to persist and persevere against the dark denial.”
Savitri passes onwards beyond the vital worlds concealed within us to the world of mind where rule and measure predominate over the wild freedom and passion of life. The Spirit does not find its freedom here since it is tied to rule and norm.
When you give us the red lotus which is the symbol of Sri Aurobindo, we receive from you the consciousness of the Supreme, don’t we?
I cannot give the consciousness of the Supreme, for who would be capable of receiving it? — When I give the red lotus I establish simply a relation between the sadhaks and Sri Aurobindo — or rather I renew this relation.
