Savitri, Book II, The Book Of The Traveller Of The Worlds, Canto VIII, The World Of Falsehood, The Mother Of Evil and The Sons Of Darkness, Part 2, Pages 225 - 229
The Traveller is in the World of Falsehood where the giant sons of Darkness sit as in a studio of creative Death and plan the tragic drama of the earth. These are the subtle and enormous powers which fill Nature with evil and claim God's approval for their acts.The dark Adventurers, terrible agencies allowed by the Spirit, oppose the eternal Will and load the dice of Doom with wizard lies. This too the Traveller of the Worlds must dare. None can reach heaven who has not passed through Hell.
Mother's Questions And Answers, May 2, 1956
In this class, for the first time since the Supramental Manifestation of February 29, 1956, people begin to ask questions about it. Mother speaks about who can be aware of the new force in the atmosphere and why people might not be able to have any experience of the new force. She also speaks about what people can do to relate to and receive these forces which are now in the earth atmosphere. She explains the difference between a "descent" and a "manifestation".
Here is the completion of Chapter 2 Self-Consecration of Part One Yoga of Divine Works, page 78 through page 88.
" A constant and unfailing will of consecration of all ourselves to the Supreme is demanded of us, an offering of our whole being and our many-chambered nature to the Eternal who is the All ..... total fullness of consecration can only come by a constant progression when the long and difficult process of transforming desire out of existence is completed in an ungrudging measure......constant rejection of all that is not the true Truth of the Divine .....perfect self-consecration implies perfect self-surrender...."
Une série hébdomadaire de lectures par Gangalakshmi (en Français) de sélection d?oeuvres sur ou de la Mère et Sri Aurobindo, qui lui semble La Manifestation Supramentale.
A weekly series of readings by Gangalakshmi (in French) from selected works by or on the Mother and Sri Aurobindo.
This week selection Sri Aurobindo?s La Manifestation Suprmanetale - Le Corps Divin, Illuminated Mind
In this chapter, Self-Consecration, Sri Aurobindo begins by stating that all yoga is a birth out of the ordinary into a higher spiritual consciousness. According to the nature of the man a call comes for an inward change, which must be followed by a decision of the mind and will to a complete and effective self-consecration.
Who embarks on the path of Integral Yoga comes face to face with the complexity of his own being; he must go deep within himself, learn the secret stuff of his nature and create in it all a divine centre, a true harmony and luminous order....
This reading is from page 69 through page 78, the first half of the chapter. It will be concluded next week, ending with the assurance that a greater leading not personal to ourselves, is within and behind us.
Mother's Questions And Answers, May 9, 1956
Mother explains that the true spiritual life begins when we are in conscious communion with our psychic being and when we are conscious of the Divine Presence in us, and it governs our life. She explains what Sri Aurobindo means when when he says that materially we are nothing, spiritually we are everything. Then she answers a question about being influenced and helped by the new Supramental force that has just manifested. In this class, Mother's sense of humor comes to the fore.
