Savitri, B. III, C. II

Savitri, Book III, The Book Of The Divine Mother, Canto II, The Adoration Of The Divine Mother

King Aswapathy has attained the consciousness of the infinite, eternal, sole Supreme Master. He has reached the silence of the Self, but only half God’s cosmic work is done. The Divine Mother can now reveal something of herself to his seeking soul, and once he has seen her he only wants to draw her presence and power into all of his being. He wants her healing touch for the suffering world. His soul is freed and given to her alone.

Mother's Q & A – 25/7/56

Mother’s Questions And Answers, July 25, 1956

Mother speaks about the three things we need to do to make our physical acts of worship into living spiritual experience. She also describes the right way to listen to spiritual teaching and how to have a spiritual experience. Then she tells the students how necessary it is that they make the effort not to fall back into the old ways of the outside world if they want to profit from their stay in the Ashram, because they are in a place where work is being done to bring something new into the world. The original French recording of Mother’s class will play after the English reading.

Savitri, Book III, The Book Of The Divine Mother, Canto I, The Pursuit Of The Unknowable

The Great Yogi-King reached the top of all that can be known, and finds it is not enough. Now he must pursue the Unknowable, He must have the realization of the infinite, eternal, Supreme Master of Creation along with the realization of the Divine Mother. The king reaches a height where he must make a tremendous choice; “All he had been and all towards which he grew must now be left behind or else transform into a self of That which has no name….The separate self must melt or be reborn into a Truth beyond the mind’s apeal”. Then the yogi-king can realize the One by whom all live, who lives by none.

One of the chief functions of the physical mind is to doubt. If you listen to it, it will always find thousand reasons for doubting. But you must know that the physical mind is working in ignorance and full of falsehoods.

Mother's Q & A – 18/7/56, Part 2

Mother’s Questions And Answers, July 18, 1956

Mother gives advice on what we can do to be able to meditate and pray for long periods of time. Then she speaks about people who choose to be an enemy of the Divine. She explains the reality of what it is that a person thinks is his enemy when he believes himself to be an enemy of the Divine. Then she continues explaining about what would happen if the whole universe identified perfectly and completely with the Divine. She explains why the Divine created His manifested universe to be a progressive universe and what it means for us to think of the universe as a progressive manifestation instead of a static perfection. The original French recording of Mother’s class will play after the English translation.

Savitri, B. II, C. XV

Savitri, Book II, The Book Of The Traveller Of The Worlds, Canto XV, The Kingdoms Of The Greater Knowledge

King Aswapathy awakens in the colorless purity of his own soul. All once perceived and lived was far away. He had risen out of the sphere of Mind and he saw the undivided splendor of the Spirit in its complete unity of all things. This canto describes the overmind consciousness and Sri Aurobindo writes that the king scanned the secrets of the overmind. King Aswapathy’s finite parts approached their absolutes, his actions framed the movements of the Gods, his will took up the reigns of cosmic Force.

Mother's Q&A – 18/7/56, Part 1

Mother’s Questions And Answers, 18 July, 1956, Part 1

Mother says Krishna, the the Divine flute player, is the supreme power of attraction of the immanent and universal Divine, who is all beauty, and Radha, who responds to the call of the Flute player is our individual soul, our psychic being. She explains that when we are fully responsive to the Divine we are in a state of consciousness which is a protection and a help. She explains why the Supreme becomes the manifested universe.

Synthesis of Yoga

Chapter 4 Concentration continued to its completion; pages 321 – 325, of Part II, The Yoga of Integral Knowledge.

Sri Aurobindo explains: ” ….. concentraiton proceeds by the Idea, using thought, form and name as keys which yield up to the concentrating mind the Truth that lies concealed behind all thought, form and name ….. “

” ….. the mind is a thing that dwells in diffusion ….. it can only concentrate on one thing at a time and when not concentrated runs from one thing to another very much at random.”

” ….. The first step in concentration must be always to accustom the discursive mind to a settled unwavering pursuit ….. on a single subject ….. undistracted by all lures and alien calls on its attention ….. common enough in our ordinary life ….. difficult when we have to do it inwardly ….. this inward concentration is what the seeker of knowledge must effect.”

Savitri, B. II, C. XIV

Savitri, Book II, The Book Of The Traveller Of The Worlds, Canto XIV, The World Soul

The great Yogi-King is called by a mysterious sound which is all sounds in turn and yet the same, and he enters a mystic passage to the deep heart of the world. There, where all is soul, he finds the silent soul of all the world, and he sees the fashioning chamber of the worlds where souls return to rest between births. Along a road of pure interior light his soul passes on towards the end which ever begins again. There he sees, for the first time in his long, long journey, the Divine Mother.

Sri Aurobindo: Synthesis of Yoga

This reading picks up on page 312, middle of Chapter 3 The Purified Understanding of Part II: The Yoga of Integral Knowledge.

” ….. what we mean by the understanding and by that higher faculty ….. which stands, to the developed intellect, much in the same relation as that intellect stands to the half-animal reason of the undeveloped man…… the nature of the purification necessary before the understanding can rightly fulfill its part in the attainment of right knowledge ….. All impurity is a confusion of working, a departure of dharma (sankara) the right action of things ….. pure and helpful to our perfection …..usually the result of ignorant confusion ….. “

“The second cause of impurity in the understanding is the illusion of the senses ….. A third cause of impurity in the understanding ….. an improper action of the will to know ….. a more or less obstinate will to ignore the truth in other ideas and opinions, cling to fragments of a truth ….. “

” ….. necessary to have the power of dismissing all thought ….. to think not at all ….. a power ….. a profound and pregnant stillness…. silence from which all words are born …..”
