Last time King Aswapathy was changed by the secret hand of the cosmic Worker. Now he reaches higher and higher states of consciousness. Windows of inner sight opened. A vision came of higher realms than ours. All now his bright clairaudience could receive. The Supreme’s gaze looked out through human eyes and saw all things and creatures as itself. Wisdom transcendent touched his quivering heart. His soul stood free, a witness and a king. Sri Aurobindo told about some of his own yoga in the story of the yoga of King Aswapathy. Again this week, Richard Hartz from the Ashram Archives has given us some of Sri Aurobindo’s own diary entries in the Record of Yoga which correspond to things that happen to Aswapathy.
