Divine Masters like Sri Aurobindo descend to Earth but once in several centuries. They come with the Divine Force to lift Man to his innate godhood, to establish the spiritual law of existence, to free the Divine in Man from the Asuric tyranny of the lower vital egoism. The birth of such a god-man is not an ordinary birth in ignorance. It is a soul-birth. It is the dual phenomenon of divinity and humanity. Calm, majestic, radiant, self-fixed, enthroned upon dynamic peace, the personality of Sri Aurobindo compels our adherence and adoration. Every aspect of his life shows the Superman in him.
Sri Aurobindo is a force, a presence, a manifestation. In this Iron Age of doubt and scepticism, dominated by the dollar and dagger of merciless brute forces, the advent of such a Master presages a new dawn, a new hope for humanity. Fixed in the tranquillity of a Flame-Trance, this Yogin of yogins sheds around his feet the blessings of a comforting peace and Truth-light.
