Why Sri Aurobindo Is Cool
by Craig Hamilton

"Well, what I think Sri Aurobindo has to say to humanity today, which I think will be relevant until the day the entire world has indeed become divine down to the quarks, is that evolution needs our participation. In a way, this is the most inspiring and empowering part of his vision: That through the choices we make every day, we can help to move evolution forward toward this glorious, divine end he spoke of. It's as if he was saying, in some sense, that the direction is already set, but the power to bring it about lies entirely in our hands. And that's the good news. We can bring it about. In fact, given the state the world is in, we have to. There's so much that's possible. So for any of us who still think enlightenment is about waiting for the big blast that will get us out of here, he's saying, 'Wake up and join the revolution. The revolution of consciousness. The revolution of evolution.' Because there's something to bring into being here that the world hasn't seen yet. And that, to me, is where Sri Aurobindo is going to be relevant for a long time to come."

Savitri - The complete text

"It was the hour before the Gods awake.
Across the path of the divine Event

The huge foreboding mind of Night, alone
In her unlit temple of eternity,
Lay stretched immobile upon Silence' marge."

"You will see that every time you read it,  something new will be revealed to you.  Each time you will get a new glimpse, each time a new experience; things which were not there, things you did not understand arise and suddenly become clear.  Always an unexpected vision comes up through the words and lines.  Every time you try to read and understand,  you will see that something is added, something which was hidden behind is revealed clearly and vividly.  I tell you the very verses you have read once before, will appear to you in a different light each time you re-read them.  This is what of happens invariably.  Always your experience is enriched, it is a revelation at each step."
