The Last Prayer
(Dilip Kumar Roy)

Not this way, Lord! Not that way, now
Your way alone, Love! I shall walk.

Not these words, Lord! Nor those words, now
Of you alone, Love! I shall talk.

Come, clasp my hand, I call to you
Light of my life, lead on, lead on.

I ask for naught, I give my all,
My heart’s aflame, all shadows gone.

How to Read Sri Aurobindo

I advise always to read a little at a time, keeping the mind as tranquil as one can, without making an effort to understand, but keeping the head as silent as possible, and letting the force contained in what one reads enter deep within. This force received in the calm and the silence will do its work of light and, if needed, will create in the brain the necessary cells for the understanding. Thus, when one re-reads the same thing some months later, one perceives that the thought expressed has become much more clear and close, and even sometimes altogether familiar.

It is preferable to read regularly, a little every day, and at a fixed hour if possible; this facilitates the brain-receptivity.

Q: What should be the final aim of a Sadhak? Should it not be to become a Yogi?

To be in full union with the Divine is the final aim.’ When one has some kind of constant union, one can be called a yogi, but the union has to be made complete. There are yogis who have only the union on the spiritual plane, others who are united in mind and heart, others in the vital also. In our yoga our aim is to be united too in the physical consciousness and on the supramental plane.
