vaibhav's quotes

Test

vaibhav's picture



Humanity's true moral test, its fundamental test, consists of its attitude toward those who are at tis mercy: animals. And in this respect, human kind has suffered a fundamental debacle, a debacle so fundamental that all others stem from it.

— Sri Aurobindo



Intellect

Transcend

"Arise, transcend thyself. Thou art man and the whole nature of man is to become more than himself"

— Sri Aurobindo



The supramental

vaibhav's picture



The supramental transformation, the supramental evolution must carry with it a lifting of mind, life and body out of themselves into a greater way of being in which yet their own ways and powers would be, not suppressed or abolished, but perfected and fulfilled by the self-exceeding.

— Sri Aurobindo



Reason was the helper; Reason is the bar

vaibhav's picture



The Goal When we have passed beyond knowings, then we shall have Knowledge. Reason was the helper; Reason is the bar. When we have passed beyond willings, then we shall have Power. Effort was the helper; Effort is the bar. When we have passed beyond enjoyings, then we shall have Bliss. Desire was the helper; Desire is the bar. When we have passed beyond individualising, then we shall be real Persons. Ego was the helper; Ego is the bar. When we have passed beyond humanity, then we shall be the Man. The Animal was the helper; the Animal is the bar. Transform reason into ordered intuition; let all thyself be light. This is thy goal. Transform effort into an easy and sovereign overflowing of the soul-strength; let all thyself be conscious force. This is thy goal. Transform enjoying into an even and objectless ecstasy; let all thyself be bliss. This is thy goal. Transform the divided individual into the world-personality; let all thyself be the divine. This is thy goal. Transform the Animal into the Driver of the herds; let all thyself be Krishna. This is thy goal.

— Sri Aurobindo

The Mother

vaibhav's picture



"The One whom we adore as the Mother is the divine Conscious Force that dominates all existence, one and yet many-sided that to follow her movement is impossible even for the quickest mind and for the freest and most vast intelligence."

— Sri Aurobindo on The Mother (Mirra Alfassa)



Soul experience

vaibhav's picture



What the soul sees and has experienced, that it knows; the rest is appearance, prejudice and opinion.

— Sri Aurobindo



I

vaibhav's picture



Even in rags I am a god,fallen I am divine,high I triumph when down-trod,long I live when slain!

— Sri Aurobindo



Veda

vaibhav's picture



The language of the Veda itself is sruti, a rhythm not composed by the intellect but heard, a divine Word that same vibrating out of the Infinite to the inner audience of the man who had previously made himself fit fot the impersonal knowledge.

— Sri Aurobindo
