VI SIGHT BEHIND THOUGHT "All that escaped conception's narrow noose Vision descried and gripped; their seeing thoughts Filled in the blanks left by the seeking sense." Sri Aurobindo, Savitri, Book II, Canto XI, p. 268. "The impersonal truth of things can be rendered into the abstract formulas of the pure reason, but there is another side of truth which belongs to the spiritual or mystic vision and without that inner vision of realities the abstract formulation of them is insufficiently alive, incomplete. The mystery of things is the true truth of things; the intellectual presentation is only truth in representation, i

INTRODUCTION: A View, in Advance, of What the Book is About The book From Man Human to Man Divine bears an unusual title and, as the title indicates, it deals with the evolutionary destiny of man. Man's past, present and future have been thoroughly discussed here in the wide perspective of the total earthly existence. Some cardinal problems besetting man's advance in his present evolutionary status have been put into focus, analysed in all their ramifications and then their probable evolutionary solutions delineated, based on the revelations made by the great seer-philosopher Sri Aurobindo. Nothing is here offered as mere dogmatic assertions to be either accepted or reject

VII THE ASCENT OF THOUGHT AND THE ASCENT OF SPEECH "In a complete silence only is the Silence heard; in a pure peace only is its Being revealed. Therefore to us the name of That is the Silence and the Peace." (Sri Aurobindo, The Synthesis of Yoga, p. 302.) "There sight attains not, nor speech attains, nor the mind... That which remains unexpressed by the word, that by which the word is expressed, know that indeed to be the Brahman..." (na tatra cakṣur gacchati na vāg gacchati no mano... yad vācānabhyuditaṁ yena vāg abhyudyate tadeva brahma tvaṁ viddhi...) (Kena Upanishad, 3, 4: Sri Aurobindo's translation.

VIII SRI AUROBINDO AND THE CRISIS OF MODERN MAN The Age of Anxiety The twentieth century has been called the 'Age of Human Predicament'. The man of our epoch has been suffering from an all-pervading sense of anxiety with its background of frustration, maladjustment and inner disintegration. The art of the time, and more comprehensively its literature, reflect in various ways manifestations of this constant undercurrent of anxiety. Thomas Hardy's novels have given a poignant picture of mankind's predicament in the universe. Hardy saw mankind 'swept from darkness to darkness, like a straw on a torrent, by a ruthless, mysterio

APPENDIX SRI AUROBINDO ON THE TASK BEFORE HUMANITY "The salvation of the human race lies in a more sane and integral development of the possibilities of mankind in the individual and in the community. The safety of Europe has to be sought in the recognition of the spiritual aim of human existence, otherwise she will be crushed by the weight of her own unillumined knowledge and soulless organisation. The safety of Asia lies in the recognition of the material mould and mental conditions in which that aim has to be worked out, otherwise she will sink deeper into the slough of despond, of a mental and physical incompetence to deal with the facts of life

X MAN, THE INDIVIDUAL AND SOCIAL BEING (The Malady and its Cure) "A Bliss, a Light, a Power, a flame-white Love Caught all into a sole immense embrace; Existence found its truth on Oneness' breast And each became the self and space of all. The great world-rhythms were heart-beats of one Soul, To feel was a flame-discovery of God, All mind was a single harp of many strings, All life a song of many meeting lives; For worlds were many, but the Self was one." (Sri Aurobindo, Savitri, Book III, Canto III, p. 323) Earth-life appears to us to be a vast arena where individuals and c
