Towards a New World – Work of the Dual Avatāra

In addition to exploring the attribute of ‘Goodness’ this issue is our offering for the special month of April. On April 4 in 1910, Sri Aurobindo arrived in Pondicherry, his “cave of tapasya”. In 1920 on April 24th, the Mother arrived in Pondicherry to be with Sri Aurobindo and collaborate in the Supramental Yoga to bring down a new consciousness on the earth.

The Human Aspiration – Deliberations on The Life Divine (2)

In this first chapter, we get an overview of the eternal human aspiration that has been there since the beginning and promises to remain until the end. This is followed by a review of the apparent contradictions in present human life at present, which Sri Aurobindo explains are Nature’s own method of moving towards a harmony that will fructify ultimately in the transformation of mind, life and body through the light and power of a new consciousness, the emerging Supermind.  

The Passing of Sri Aurobindo: Its Inner Significance – Part 3

The author writes: “A splendid heroism of selflessness is here, the vividest picture of a warrior Yogi who would take any risk, if thereby he could press closer to his objective and though the formula is “I conquer or perish” the frame of mind is one that might easily avail itself of a yet more audacious formula: “I perish to conquer.””

The Absolutely Perfect, the Absolutely Humble Divine

In India, since millennia, modesty or humility has been considered the one of the most noble virtues, one that is the ornament of all virtues. In present times when self-promotion is not only an acceptable practice but has actually become a highly sophisticated skill that one must master if one wants to be ‘successful’, humility often takes a backseat. But if we step back for a moment and reflect carefully we will find that it is exactly in times like these that we must sincerely begin to examine for ourselves what is true humility. And more importantly, how it is related to our inner journeys, our growth as conscious individuals with an aspiration to grow inwardly and walk the path that takes us closer to our highest Self within. This issue is dedicated to exploring Humility as one of the Twelve Powers which the Mother spoke of as necessary for the full manifestation of Her Work.
