Then he placed the Gita in my hands.His strength entered into me and I was able to do the Sadhana of the Gita.i was not only to understand intellectually but to realise what Sri Krishna demanded of Arjuna and what He demands of those who aspire to do His work,to be free from repulsion and desire,to do and become a passive and faithful instrument in His hands,to have an equal heart for high and low,friend and opponent,success and failure,yet not to do His work negligently.

About the Author:

Quotation The Spirit shall look out through Matter's gaze. And Matter shall reveal the Spirit's face. Sri Aurobindo (Bengali) Sri Ôrobindo) (born Aurobindo Ghose; 15 August 1872 5 December 1950) was an Indian nationalist, freedom fighter, philosopher, yogi, guru, and poet.He joined the Indian movement for freedom from British rule and for a duration became one of its most important leaders,[4] before developing his own vision of human progress and spiritual evolution. A central theme of Sri Aurobindo's vision is the evolution of human life into life divine. He writes: "Man is a transitional being. He is not final. The step from man to superman is the next approaching achievement in the earth evolution. It is inevitable because it is at once the intention of the inner spirit and the logic of nature's process." Sri Aurobindo synthesized Eastern and Western philosophy, religion, literature, and psychology in writings. Aurobindo was the first Indian to create a major literary corpus in English.[5] His works include philosophy; poetry; translations of and commentaries on the Vedas, Upanishads, and the Gita; plays; literary, social, political, and historical criticism; devotional works; spiritual journals and three volumes of letters. His principal philosophical writings are The Life Divine and The Synthesis of Yoga, while his principal poetic work is Savitri: A Legend and a Symbol.
