Even if the being is not entirely purified, varieties of inspirations and powers may come down from above but this may lead to serious errors. Inspirations from above mixing with the impurities from below get all muddled up and the sadhak takes this for an absolute command. Many a sadhak has thus fallen into danger. Therefore, one must particularly lay stress on the purification of the being.Sri Aurobindo Aurobindo Sayings By Sri Aurobindo: Even if the being is not entirely purified, varieties of inspirations and powers may come
The psychic being and the mental being, Manomaya Purusha, are not the same. The psychic being is behind the mind, it is what the Westerners call the soul.

The knowledge of the psychic being is deeper.Sri Aurobindo Aurobindo Sayings By Sri Aurobindo: The psychic being and the mental being, Manomaya Purusha, are not the same. The psychic

What you call the psychic being is the mind of the vital. The heart is the seat of this mind. And this mind is the essence of the senses. It receives things from outside, acts upon things that are outside - knows, gives consent, takes interest in them. But this mind cannot be the Ishwara, but it is the knower, the giver of the consent.Sri Aurobindo Aurobindo Sayings By Sri Aurobindo: What you call the psychic being is the mind of the vital. The heart is

Suffering makes us capable of the full force of the Master of Delight; it makes us capable also to bear the utter play of the Master of Power.

The deeper we look, the more we shall be convinced that the one thing wanting, which we must strive to acquire before all others, is strength strength physical, strength mental, strength moral, but above all strength spiritual which is the one inexhaustible and imperishable source of all the others.

Sri Aurobindo Aurobindo Sayings By Sri Aurobindo: We are sons of God And must be even as he.
Every square inch of Delhi is claimed by gangs of stray dogs who vociferously defend their turf. There is a whole political structure to their world: the Hauz Khas Howlers guard the market against territory incursions by the Aurobindo Maulers while maintaining a dumpster-sharing agreement with the Green Park Greyhounds; the former are allowed access to the discarded chapattis on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and alternating Saturdays, during which time the latter take over to ensure that no passing autorickshaw goes un-barked at. The stray dogs live, love and lie on the street; but their docile daytime trotting gives way to snarls and warfare at night, and the evening streets echo with their power struggles.Anonymous Aurobindo Sayings By Anonymous: Every square inch of Delhi is claimed by gangs of stray dogs who vociferously defend

All religions have some truth in them, but none has the whole truth; all are created in time and finally decline and perish.

Everyone has in him something divine, something his own, a chance of perfection and strength in however small a sphere which God offers him to take or refuse.

Those who have advanced rise to the mind which is in the head, - they have the play of their mental movements in the head itself.

I say, of the Congress, then, this that its aims are mistaken, that the spirit in which it proceeds towards their accomplishment is not a spirit of sincerity and whole-heartedness, and that the methods it has chosen are not the right methods, and the leaders in whom it trusts, not the right sort of men to be leaders; in brief, that we are at present the blind led, if not by the blind, at any rate by the one-eyed.Sri Aurobindo Aurobindo Sayings By Sri Aurobindo: I say, of the Congress, then, this that its aims are mistaken, that the spirit

The ascent to the divine Life is the human journey, the Work of works, the acceptable Sacrifice. This alone is man's real business in the world and the justification of his existence, without which he would only be an insect crawling among the ephemeral insects on a spec of surface mud and water which has managed to form itself amid the appalling immensities of the physical universe.Sri Aurobindo Aurobindo Sayings By Sri Aurobindo: The ascent to the divine Life is the human journey, the Work of works, the

It is true that the subliminal in man is the largest part of his nature and has in it the secret of the unseeen dynamisms which explain his surface activities. But the lower vital subconscious which is all that this psycho-analysis of Freud seems to know, - and of that it knows only a few ill-lit corners, - is no more than a restricted and very inferior portion of the subliminal whole ... to begin by opening up the lower subconscious, risking to raise up all that is foul or obscure in it, is to go out of one's way to invite trouble.Sri Aurobindo Aurobindo Sayings By Sri Aurobindo: It is true that the subliminal in man is the largest part of his nature
Death fosters life that life may suckle death.Sri Aurobindo Aurobindo Sayings By Sri Aurobindo: Death fosters life that life may suckle death.

The true and full object and utility of Yoga can only be accomplished when the conscious Yoga in man becomes, like the subconscious Yoga in Nature, outwardly conterminous with life itself and we can once more, looking out both on the path and the achievement, say in a more perfect and luminous sense: "All life is Yoga." (Aurobindo 1976, 4)Georg Feuerstein Aurobindo Sayings By Georg Feuerstein: The true and full object and utility of Yoga can only be accomplished when the

What sort of politics you people do? Such is the way of all parliaments: one can sense even beforehand the trend of voting, in which direction it will turn.Sri Aurobindo Aurobindo Sayings By Sri Aurobindo: What sort of politics you people do? Such is the way of all parliaments: one

To play with baubles is our ambition, not to deal with grave questions in a spirit of serious energy. But while we are playing with baubles, with our Legislative Councils, our Simultaneous Examinations, our ingenious schemes for separating the judicial from the executive functions, while we, I say, are finessing about trifles, the waters of the great deep are being stirred and that surging chaos of the primitive man over which our civilised societies are superimposed on a thin crust of convention, is being strangely and ominously agitated.Sri Aurobindo Aurobindo Sayings By Sri Aurobindo: To play with baubles is our ambition, not to deal with grave questions in a
This universe an old enchantment guards; Its objects are carved cups of World-Delight Whose charmed wine is some deep soul's rapture-drink: The All-Wonderful has packed heaven with his dreams, He has made blank ancient Space his marvel-house; He spilled his spirit into Matter's signs: His fires of grandeur burn in the great sun, He glides through heaven shimmering in the moon; He is beauty carolling in the fields of sound; He chants the stanzas of the odes of Wind; He is silence watching in the stars at night; He wakes at dawn and calls from every bough, Lies stunned in the stone and dreams in flower and tree.Sri Aurobindo Aurobindo Sayings By Sri Aurobindo: This universe an old enchantment guards; Its objects are carved cups of World-Delight Whose charmed

Spirituality is the master key of the Indian mind. It is this dominant inclination of India which gives character to all the expressions of her culture. In fact, they have grown out of her inborn spiritual tendency of which her religion is a natural out flowering. The Indian mind has always realized that the Supreme is the Infinite and perceived that to the soul in Nature the Infinite must always present itself in an infinite variety of aspects.Sri Aurobindo Aurobindo Sayings By Sri Aurobindo: Spirituality is the master key of the Indian mind. It is this dominant inclination of
Propaganda is necessary only for the sake of money!Sri Aurobindo Aurobindo Sayings By Sri Aurobindo: Propaganda is necessary only for the sake of money!
A total spiritual direction given to the whole life and the whole nature can alone lift humanity beyond itself ... It is only the full emergence of the soul, the full descent of the native light and power of the Spirit and the consequent replacement or transformation and uplifting of our insufficient mental and vital nature by a spiritual and supramental Supernature that can effect this evolutionary miracle.Sri Aurobindo Aurobindo Sayings By Sri Aurobindo: A total spiritual direction given to the whole life and the whole nature can alone

The seers of ancient India had, in their experiments and efforts at spiritual training and the conquest of the body, perfected a discovery which in its importance to the future of human knowledge dwarfs the divinations of Newton and Galileo , even the discovery of the inductive and experimental method in Science was not more momentous ...Sri Aurobindo Aurobindo Sayings By Sri Aurobindo: The seers of ancient India had, in their experiments and efforts at spiritual training and
If India is to survive, she must be made young again. Rushing and billowing streams of energy must be poured into her; her soul must become, as it was in the old times, like the surges, vast, puissant, calm or turbulent at will, an ocean of action or of force.Sri Aurobindo Aurobindo Sayings By Sri Aurobindo: If India is to survive, she must be made young again. Rushing and billowing streams

A thinking puppet is the mind of life:
Its choice is the work of elemental strengths
That know not their own birth and end and cause
And glimpse not the immense intent they serve.
In this nether life of man drab-hued and dull,
Yet filled with poignant small ignoble things,
The conscious Doll is pushed a hundred ways
And feels the push but not the hands that drive.
For none can see the masked ironic troupe
To whom our figure-selves are marionettes,
Our deeds unwitting movements in their grasp,
Our passionate strife an entertainment's scene.
Sri Aurobindo Aurobindo Sayings By Sri Aurobindo: A thinking puppet is the mind of life: Its choice is the work of elemental
The Person is a bubble on Time's sea.Sri Aurobindo Aurobindo Sayings By Sri Aurobindo: The Person is a bubble on Time's sea.
One can see light above the head; that indicates a consciousness outside the body. But that itself is not the Truth-Consciousness or Vijnana. But much light descending from there illumines this consciousness.Sri Aurobindo Aurobindo Sayings By Sri Aurobindo: One can see light above the head; that indicates a consciousness outside the body. But
An incense floated in the quivering air, A mystic happiness trembled in the breast As if the invisible Beloved had come Assuming the sudden loveliness of a face And close glad hands could seize his fugitive feet And the world change with the beauty of a smile.Sri Aurobindo Aurobindo Sayings By Sri Aurobindo: An incense floated in the quivering air, A mystic happiness trembled in the breast As

God does work through both pure and impure vessels but that does not mean that one should keep nature impure for ever. When the vessel will become pure the urge for action coming from within will be a flawless, definitive action. As long as that does not happen one has to minimize one's activities.Sri Aurobindo Aurobindo Sayings By Sri Aurobindo: God does work through both pure and impure vessels but that does not mean that
As Aurobindo and Teilhard de Chardin knew, the future of humankind is God-consciousness.Ken Wilber Aurobindo Sayings By Ken Wilber: As Aurobindo and Teilhard de Chardin knew, the future of humankind is God-consciousness.

The desire of your vital being is towards work. And the vital being won't find any interest in yoga so long as you do not have any experience of the higher and fuller life that is in yoga.

Thus to act under the guidance coming from above, this is one side of the sadhana, the dynamic side. The other one is the discrimination between the Purusha and the Prakriti. The Purusha will calmly observe, give sanction, choose, but will realise that all this does not belong to him - all these are outside him. This is the static side of the sadhana. These two aspects constitute the basis of Yoga.Sri Aurobindo Aurobindo Sayings By Sri Aurobindo: Thus to act under the guidance coming from above, this is one side of the
