Sri Aurobindo

Meeting of Minds

The effect of such a conflu- ence was that they together undertook a formidable evolu- tionary experiment aiming at a most explicit One-ness, which exists not by suppressing variety but, instead, an infinitely wide and comprehensive conscious- ness takes up in itself, assimi- lates and furthers all manifesta- tions of multiplicity without los- ing itself in the process.

Revolutionary to Yogi

Sri Aurobindo affirmed ‘the harmony of all religions precisely on the basis of this non-sectarian Vedantic worldview‘, faithfully following Sri Ramakrishna and Swami Vivekananda. His actual revolutionary career spanned hardly four years. But his spiritual pursuit spanned four decades. Within this period he raised himself by intense sadhana to be an extraordinary yogi of distinctive character and epitome.
