Sri Aurobindo Center of Los Angeles

When I was a child of about thirteen, for nearly a year every night as soon as I had gone to bed it seemed to me that I went out of my body and rose straight up above the house, then above the city, very high above. Then I used to see myself clad in a magnificent golden robe, much longer than myself; and as I rose higher, the robe would stretch, spreading out in a circle around me to form a kind of immense roof over the city. Then I would see men, women, children, old men, the sick, the unfortunate coming out from every side; they would gather under the outspread robe, begging for help, telling of their miseries, their suffering, their hardships. In reply, the robe, supple and alive, would extend towards each one of them individually, and as soon as they had touched it, they were…

After his studies in the…

Sri Aurobindo Studies

The current chapter is focused on the transformation of our surface human being to its divine fulfillment and realisation through accomplishment of the inner opening, and the consequent impacts the psychic, and eventually the spiritual and supramental influences resulting therefrom have on the surface personality and action. Sri Aurobindo describes a powerful technique to facilitate this inner opening, which he calls the separation of Purusha and Prakriti. This is one of the signature practices to implement the yogic effort.

“If one stands back from the mind and its activities so that they fall silent at will or go on as a surface movement of which one is the detached and disinterested witness, it becomes possible eventually to realise oneself as the inner Self of mind, the true and pure mental being, the Purusha; by similarly standing back from the life-activities, it is possible to realise oneself as the inner Self…

SELF posits a model of counselling and communicative action as an instrument in order to stimulate the public sphere. The model aims at supplementing the individual’s struggle for a successful social adjustment with more aspirational inputs so as to help one take an informed and balanced attitude towards life as well as society.
