Sri Aurobindo Quotes

Delight is the secret. Learn of pure delight and thou shalt learn of God.

Sri Aurobindo

But that immergence is not in the nature of an annihilation. Extinction is not the fulfilment of all this search and passion, suffering and rapture. The game would never have been begun if that were to be its ending.

Sri Aurobindo

In a word, godhead; to remake ourselves in the divine image.

Sri Aurobindo

What is there new that we have yet to accomplish? Love, for as yet we have only accomplished hatred and self-pleasing; Knowledge, for as yet we have only accomplished error and perception and conceiving; Bliss, for as yet we have only accomplished pleasure and pain and indifference; Power, for as yet we have only accomplished weakness and effort and a defeated victory; Life, for as yet we have only accomplished birth and growth and dying; Unity, for as yet we have only accomplished war and association.

Sri Aurobindo

Thought is not essential to existence nor its cause, but it is an instrument for becoming; I become what I see in myself. All that thought suggests to me, I can do; all that thought reveals in me, I can become. This should be man's unshakable faith in himself, because God dwells in him.

Sri Aurobindo

Be conscious first of thyself within, then think and act. All living thought is a world in preparation; all real act is a thought manifested. The material world exists because an Idea began to play in divine self-consciousness.

Sri Aurobindo

To rotate on its own axis is not the one movement for the human soul. There is also its wheeling round the Sun of an inexhaustible illumination.

Sri Aurobindo

Impossibility is only a sum of greater unrealised possibles. It veils an advanced stage and a yet unaccomplished journey.

Sri Aurobindo

Transform the divided individual into the world-personality; let all thyself be the divine. This is thy goal.

Sri Aurobindo

When we have passed beyond individualising, then we shall be real Persons. Ego was the helper; Ego is the bar.

Sri Aurobindo

When we have passed beyond enjoyings, then we shall have Bliss. Desire was the helper; Desire is the bar.

Sri Aurobindo

When we have passed beyond willings, then we shall have Power. Effort was the helper; Effort is the bar.

Sri Aurobindo

When we have passed beyond knowings, then we shall have Knowledge. Reason was the helper; Reason is the bar.

Sri Aurobindo

God's servant is something; God's slave is greater.

Sri Aurobindo

The strangest of the soul's experiences is this, that it finds, when it ceases to care for the image and threat of troubles, then the troubles themselves are nowhere to be found in one's neighbourhood. It is then that we hear from behind those unreal clouds God laughing at us.

Sri Aurobindo

Canst thou see God as the bodiless Infinite and yet love Him as a man loves his mistress? Then has the highest truth of the Infinite been revealed to thee. Canst thou also clothe the Infinite in one secret embraceable body and see Him seated in each and all of these bodies that are visible and sensible? Then has its widest and profoundest truth come also into thy possession.
