Today, December 5th, in 1950, at 1h26 am, Sri Aurobindo deliberately left his body for good.
He had foreseen for already a year that it might become necessary for him to do so, in order to complete soon enough the supremely important task he had given himself decades before: bringing the Supramental specific vibration from the Supramental world directly in contact with our physical world, so that it would activate in Matter the corresponding vibration, and in this way start a new evolutive step, the Supramental Era, upon Earth. The last of what still needed to be done would be done in an easier and faster way if out of a physical body.
Because of the increasing danger of a Third World War, this task had to be completed very urgently, establishing in an irreversible manner the beautiful evolutive Future promised ‘for Earth and Men’ to the princess Savitri, an incarnation of the Divine Mother in the great epic poem, symbol of terrestrial Evolution, that he had titled after her name, and which was the only writing of his he kept revising and adding to until the day he had fixed for his departure under the pretense of an illness he was actually able to control, coming in and out of coma at will.
So it has been on the part of Sri Aurobindo the sacrifice of his own body, relinquishing the individual transformation already visibly on its way in that body. The amount of consciousness accumulated there passed into the Mother’s body, who would continue after him towards that goal of transforming the physical body.
Today being one of the Darshan Days commemorated every year at the Ashram and in Auroville, the Message selected for the Card Distribution read thus:
To express our gratitude to Sri Aurobindo we can do nothing better than to be a living demonstration of his teaching.
As this is precisely what is attempted by Auroville as a whole and this individual Aurovilian among others, this Message resonated with particular intensity in my being, and I found it perfectly suited for this Research Blog as well, so I decided to publish it here today for all those who will be reading this new post.
With all my gratitude to Sri Aurobindo, indeed, from my entire being.
