Religion and Occultism RELIGION God gives Himself to His whole creation; no one religion holds the monopoly of His Grace.                       Instead of excluding each other, religions ought to complete each other. The spiritual spirit is not contrary to a religious feeling of adoration, devotion and consecration. But what is wrong in the religions is the fixity of the mind clinging to one formula as an exclusive truth. One must always remember that formulas are only a mental expression of the truth and that this truth can always be expressed in many other ways. 6 December 1964 * You express your faith in Sri Aurobindo with certain words

DOCTORS AND MEDICINES Illnesses             Truth is supreme harmony and supreme delight.             All disorder, all suffering is falsehood.             Thus it can be said that illnesses are falsehoods of the body and, consequently, doctors are soldiers of the great and noble army fighting in the world for the conquest of Truth.             If we take the human body as a tabernacle of the Lord, then medical science becomes the ritual of worship and doctors the priests who officiate in the temple.             Thus considered, the medical career is priesthood and should be treated as such.             A broad mind, a generous heart, an u

and all its movements if the goal is at all to be attained. 18 April 1932 *             No quarrels: a very important condition to fulfil in order to facilitate the advent of the Supramental.             A consciousness luminous without obscurity, turned towards the supramental light and full of a supramentalised plasticity are the conditions for the manifestation of the supramental light upon earth.             We must never forget that our goal is to manifest the Supramental Reality. 25 May 1954 *             The Force is there waiting to be manifested, we must discover the new forms through which It can manifest. 12 June 1954 *

3 April 1962 After several weeks of grave illness which threatened the Mother’s life. Just between 11:00 and 12:00 last night, I had an experience by which I discovered that there is a group of people − purposely their identity was not revealed to me − who want to create a kind of religion based on the revelation of Sri Aurobindo. But they have taken only the side of power and force, a certain kind of knowledge and all that could be utilised by Asuric forces. There is a big Asuric being that has succeeded in taking the appearance of Sri Aurobindo. There is only an appearance. This appearance of Sri Aurobindo has declared to me that the work I am doing is not his. I

4 November 1958 Do the gods of the Puranas and the gods of Greek and Egyptian mythology have any real existence? Between the gods of the Puranas and the gods of Greek and Egyptian mythology, all kinds of similarities are found; it could be an interesting subject for study. To the modern Western world, all these divinities − the Greek gods and other “pagan” gods, as they call them − are simply a product of human imagination and correspond to nothing real in the universe. But this is a gross error.       To understand the mechanism of universal life, even that of terrestrial life, one has indeed to know that all these are real and living beings, each in its own

22 November 1958 KARMA       This sort of fatality that one sometimes feels weighing heavy on one’s life, which is called Karma in India, is the result of past lives; indeed, it is something that has to be exhausted, something that weighs on one’s consciousness.       This is how things happen: the psychic being passes from one life to another, each life on earth being the occasion and means for a further progress, for a further growth. But it can happen that the psychic takes birth with the intention of going through a certain experience, of learning a certain thing, of developing a certain faculty through a definite experience. Then, in that life, in the life in w

is removed, the cooking will be as regularly good as it was before.       24 December 1937 *       I have heard so many contradictory reports on the effects of food, spices, etc. that logically I have come to the conclusion that it must be − like all the rest − a personal affair and consequently no general rule can be made and, still less, enforced. This is the cause of my leniency.       Nothing was told to me about the aluminum vessels of which I do not approve because aluminium is not good for cooking. I am speaking of my own experience.       You know that I am not enthusiastic about servants handling the food − but many people seem to like it, throug

WILL TO CONQUER ILLNESS             Wake up in yourself a will to conquer. Not a mere will in the mind but a will in the very cells of your body. Without that you can’t do anything; you may take a hundred medicines but they won’t cure you unless you have a will to overcome the physical illness.             I may destroy the adverse force that has possessed you. I may repeat the action a thousand times. But each time that a vacuum is created it will be filled up by one of the many forces that try to rush in. That is why I say, wake up the will to conquer. 20 October 1957 *             Do not love your ill health and the ill health will leave you. 28

      It is true that “we” are passing through a difficult period (“we” means the world) but those who remain steady will get out of much stronger than before.             We are definitely not living at a time when men have been left to their own means.             The Divine has sent down His consciousness to enlighten them.             All who are able to do so, should profit by this.             Truth will conquer in spite of the turmoil.             Even within the confusion, there is the seed of the Divine order. Inwardly things seem to be improving; outwardly a sort of disintegration seems to be at the door. Where do we stand?
