About us

The meeting of man and God must always mean a penetration and entry of the Divine into the human and a self immergence of man in the Divinity.
But that immergence is not in the nature of an annihilation. Extinction is not the fulfilment of all this search and passion, suffering and rapture. The game would never have been begun if that were to be its ending.

   SRI AUROBINDO, Thoughts and Glimpses.

Poetry, articles on love



     However long Night's hour, I will not dream
           That the small ego and the person's mask
     Are all that God reveals in our life-scheme,
           The last result of Nature's cosmic task.

     A greater Presence in her bosom works ;
           Long it prepares its far epiphany:
     Even in the stone and beast the godhead lurks,
           A bright Persona of eternity.

     It shall burst out from the limit traced by Mind
           And make a witness of the prescient heart ;
      It shall reveal even in this inert blind
           Nature, long veiled in each inconscient part.

      Fulfilling the occult magnificent plan,
     The world-wide and immortal spirit in man.



Sri Aurobindo

If mankind only caught a glimpse of what infinite enjoyments, what perfect forces, what luminous reaches of spontaneous knowledge, what wide calms of our being lie waiting for us in the tracts which our animal evolution has not yet conquered, they would leave all and never rest till they had gained these treasures. But the way is narrow, the doors are hard to force, and fear, distrust and scepticism are there, tentacles of Nature to forbid the turning away of our feet from less ordinary pastures.

Sri Aurobindo Love and Ananda inThe Transformed manifestation



On love From The Future Evolution of Man - The Life Divine

What is there new that we have yet to accomplish ? Love, for as yet we have only accomplished hatred and self pleasing; Knowledge, for as yet we have only accomplished error and perception and conceiving; Bliss, for as yet we have only accomplished pleasure and pain and indifference; Power , for as yet we have only accomplished weakness and effort and a defeated victory; Life, for as yet we have only accomplished birth and growth and dying; Unity, for as yet we have only accomplished war and association.In a word godhead; to remake ourselves in the divine image.

The prophet moment covered limitless space
And cast into the heart of hurrying Time
A diamond light of the Eternal's peace,
A crimson seed of God's felicity;
A glance from the gaze fell of undying Love.
A power leaned down, a happiness found its home.
Over wide earth brooded the infinite bliss.
