There are several aspects and facets of Sri Aurobindo’s vast and complex personality, namely poet, philosopher, revolutionary, journalist, visionary, seer, yogi. But what is the essential core of his being, the central lever of his immense personality so to say? On one side we see him as an embodiment of tyaga (renunciation) and tapasya (concentrated spiritual endeavour). On the other hand we see his tremendous compassion for earth and humanity.
Complete and pure faith in the Truth is the best of all protections.
