Notes on the Texts       Record of Yoga: 1-15 January 1914. The heading "1914. January.", followed by part of a verse from the Rig Veda (1.13.6), was written by Sri Aurobindo on an otherwise blank page of the exercise book begun on 22 December 1913.

Documents in the Life of Sri Aurobindo IN PONDICHERRY—1910 AND AFTER       LIFE IN PONDICHERRY   1       Extract from "Freedom Movement in India: Some Jottings from Old Memories", by S. Srinivasachari. Unpublished MS. [Hereafter Srinivasachari MS]   He [Sri Aurobindo] came there [to Shankara Chettiar's house] about April 1910 and remained till October when he removed to a separate house in the European quarters near the seashore. Though his stay there was only for five or six months, it was quite eventful. We kept his presence in Pondicherry a secret for a month or two, except for a few of our friends who saw him on the

India and the British Parliament         A great critic has pronounced that the aim of all truly helpful criticism is to see the object as it really is. The Press is the sole contemporary critic of politics, and according as its judgments are sound or unsound, the people whose political ideas it forms, will be likely to prosper or fail. It is therefore somewhat unfortunate that the tendency of journalists should be to see the object not as it really is, but as they would like it to be. In a country like England this may not greatly matter; but in India, whose destinies are in the balance, and at a time when a straw might turn the scale, it is of the gravest import

  Record of Yoga   1 January-14 April 1914 1914. January.     Let the divine doors swing wide open for him who is not attached, who increases in himself the Truth. Jan 1.       The day was chiefly occupied with the struggle of the manasa-ketu to survive as an active factor in the consciousness instead of a passive unreacting recipient. At first, all the justifications that could still be advanced for its survival had to be allowed to rise in order that they might be refuted & destroyed. Subsequently, the manasa element in the tapas had to be rejected. As a result the action of the Mahakali tapas has been cleared of its besetting difficu

Notes on the Texts   Record of Yoga: 1 March-10 April, 7-26 June 1920. NB R24: 1-37; NB R25: 1—20. The Record of this period was kept in two thin exercise books used only for this purpose. The Record was discontinued between 10 April and 7 June 1920, as noted and explained in the entry of 7 June. After 26 June, the only dated entries for the remainder of 1920 are those of 17—19 October.         Some of the terminology of this portion of the Record has been explained in an article in the last issue, "Planes of Vijnana in the Record of Yoga, 1919-20". The use of the word "revelatory" in the present instalment requires further clarification. Several of its occurrences

It is subject still to intrusions of the mental intuitivity from the environment mind, but these are compelled to see or to transform themselves. The stuff of mind in the physical conscience still contains unilluminated movements of obscure matter, but the pressure of the light on them is constant.         The lipi is the most perfect of the members of the vijnana, free in its action, free from the lower elements, established in the vijnana. T3 is now developing with a certain freedom in the lipi.         Thought and T3 in the thought are moving constantly to the sam
