Guiding Light of The Month

THERE is a great difference between being in the midst of active work, of external action, while keeping one’s thought constantly fixed on Thee, and entering into that perfect union with Thee which leads to what I have called “absolute Consciousness, true Omniscience, Knowledge”. - The Mother

New beginnings for 2010: Editor's foreword

It is the hope of the editorial team that members of this Society as well as followers of the Integral Yoga of Sri Aurobindo take up a detailed study of any of the great texts of Sri Aurobindo and if inclined, share their ideas, views and insights with readers via this common platform of our Newsletter. This issue sees the advent of two new columns which promise to run for some months to come, through the contributions of Krishnamurthi and Sundari. In the first column below, the writer captures in writing his understanding of the magnificent text, “The Secret of the Veda” by Sri Aurobindo. A good amount of research coupled with the writer’s long-standing commitment to consistent chanting of Vedic mantras in the traditional fashion has given to this column a personal and practical value. The next column entitled “The Human Race in Light of Sri Aurobindo’s Integral Yoga”, by Sundari, bears the trademark of the writer’s study of Sri Aurobindo’s “Human Cycle” and other readings peppered by her invaluable experiences of ashram life in her earlier days, in Pondicherry. We encourage readers to read these columns closely and share their thoughts and views on the written passages with us by posting their comments on our website or writing to the Society’s email address or directly to the writer at the email address that follows at the end of the columns. This exercise will serve to open up valuable discourses on Sri Aurobindo’s works. We can also hope that a part of the path that our inner journey is set upon may receive some rays of light while contemplating on Sri Aurobindo’s works, thus.
