When I came this time those past emanations came back again from all sides—the Mother

by on April 13, 2012

Before I met Sri Aurobindo those past emanations would come and come to me, night after night and sometimes during the day—a mass of things! Afterwards I told Sri Aurobindo about it, and he explained to me that it was quite natural. And indeed, it is quite natural: with the present incarnation of the Mahashakti, whatever is more or less bound up with Her wants to take part, that’s quite natural… 

I said one day that in the history of earth, wherever there was a possibility for the Consciousness to manifest, I was there; [1] this is a fact. It’s like the story of Savitri: always there, always there, always there, in this one, that one—at certain times there were four emanations simultaneously! at the time of the Italian and French Renaissance. And again at the time of Christ, then too… Oh, you know, I have remembered so many, many things! It would take volumes to tell it all. And then, more often than not (not always, but more often than not), what took part in this or that life was a particular yogic formation of the vital being—in other words something immortal. [2] And when I came this time, as soon as I took up the yoga, they came back again from all sides, they were waiting. Some were simply waiting, others were working (they led their own independent lives) and they all gathered together again. That’s how I got those memories. One after the other, those vital beings came—a deluge! I had barely enough time to assimilate one, to see, situate and integrate it, and another would come. They are quite independent, of course, they do their own work, but they are very centralized all the same. And there are all kinds—all kinds, anything you can imagine! Some of them have even been in men: they are not exclusively feminine. 

At first, I used to think they were fantasies.

Before I met Sri Aurobindo they would come and come to me, night after night and sometimes during the day—a mass of things! Afterwards I told Sri Aurobindo about it, and he explained to me that it was quite natural. And indeed, it is quite natural: with the present incarnation of the Mahashakti (as he described in Savitri), whatever is more or less bound up with Her wants to take part, that’s quite natural…

 

[1] Since the beginning of the earth, wherever and whenever there was the possibility of manifesting a ray of the Consciousness, I was there. 14 March 1952.

[2] Each of these formations had an independent, immortal existence.
