15th August 2012: 140th Birth-Anniversary of Sri Aurobindo

by on August 15, 2012

Sri Aurobindo had come to tell us
It is not necessary to leave the earth to find the Truth.
It is not necessary to leave life to find one’s Soul.
It is not necessary to give up the world,
or to have limited beliefs
in order to enter into relation with the Divine.
The Divine is everywhere and in everything.
And if He is hidden it is because,
we do not take trouble to discover Him.

The Mother

Brahman defies description
Mind and speech return baffled from it.

Likewise Sri Aurobindo defies description, no adjective, no epithet, no appellation seems to be adequate.

So universal is his genius, so many-faceted his personality, so varied his life and career that mind and speech are overwhelmed and fall silent when confronted by him.

A being with peer,—scholar, journalist, educationist, politician, statesman, revolutionary leader, nation-builder, poet, Guru ,philosopher, lover of humanity, lover of God, Yogi, and Master.

Oh, Master, lay, lay thy hand on me
I am the tuneless one, transform me now
Put a song of melody in my heart.

Narendra Nadkarni
