A Talk by Dr Alok Pandey from the “Tuesday Talks” series (2011)
People do not touch upon such core issues of life as relationships largely because of ignorance and fear. They hardly invest time and energy in anything beyond their little area of work.
This Divine Presence hidden in the depths of creation, working even in the depths of the Inconscience is the hope for all things. The seed-idea has already been sown in the soil of nature and with passage of time it must bear fruits and flowers and disclose the divinity that is latent within it.
Sri Aurobindo wrote these poems in Baroda in 1901-1902 in a notebook, which was seized by the British police when Sri Aurobindo was arrested in 1908. This made it impossible for him to revise or publish them later.
Sri Aurobindo wrote this piece as a letter to Punamchand Shah, a disciple living in Gujarat, on 1 August 1927. In 1928 it was published as the third chapter of The Mother.

A common misconception prevails about the two terms which are often used interchangeably. They are occultism and spirituality. This talk is focused around this subject, the meeting points and the distinction.
This Reflection in English addresses the question “How to unify different parts of the Being”
A new journey begins, a new mountain climb. Aswapati has moved out of the vital worlds, seen its heights, sounded its abysses. Now he starts his climb through the mental worlds.
Sri Aurobindo had, … a high esteem for Nivedita on several grounds and has told us India cannot be too grateful to her for what she did for our country.
…to understand His play we must first free our minds of all conceptions and notions and even systems of beliefs and philosophies and ideologies that have imprisoned Him in cages of thought, painting the bars with colours of our fancies and desires.
