Darshan Card - November 24, 2021

On the Darshan day of 24th November, we celebrate the anniversary of the descent of the Overmental Consciousness and the founding of Sri Aurobindo Ashram. The Card distributed in the Ashram on 24th November this year contains a beautiful letter of Sri Aurobindo on the Godhead immanent and above all disorder, ignorance, and contradictions, which is the basis of all spiritual endeavour.

“To  spiritual  experience it is not a speculation 
but  a  fact that there is a  Godhead immanent
within   behind   this   flawed   and   imperfect 
human nature …. It is also a part of spiritual 
experience   that   there  is  something Beyond 
in  which  this  Divinity   ̶   or  whatever  other 
name    you   may   give  to  it   ̶   is  above   the 
contradiction  offered  to  it  by  this  world of 
disorder  and  ignorance;  that is the meaning 
of    the   Transcendence.    Whatever   wide 
differences  there   may be   between different 
ways   of  spiritual   experience   or   whatever
 names   may   be   put   on  these  things,   so 
much   is   fairly  universal.  If there were not 
these   certitudes,  there  could  be  no  assured 
spiritual life or endeavour.”

                                                         Sri Aurobindo
