         “If you say to the Divine with conviction, “I want only You”, the Divine will arrange all the circumstances in such a way as to compel you to be sincere. Something in the being... “I want only You.”... the aspiration...and then one wants a hundred odd things all the time, isn’t that so? At times something comes, just... usually to disturb everything—it stands in the way and prevents you from realizing your aspiration. Well, the Divine will come without showing Himself, without your seeing Him, without your having any inkling of it, and He will arrange all the circumstances in such a way that everything that prevents you from belonging solely to the Divine will be removed from your path, inevitably. Then when all is removed, you begin to howl and complain; but later, if you are sincere and look at yourself straight in the eye... you have said to the Lord, you have said, “I want only You.” He will remain close to you, all the rest will go away. This is indeed a higher Grace. Only, you must say this with conviction. I don’t even mean that you must say it integrally, because if one says it integrally, the work is done. What is necessary is that one part of the being, indeed the central will, says it with conviction: “I want only You.” Even once, and it suffices: all that takes more or less long, sometimes it stretches over years, but one reaches the goal.”
The Mother

Seeker of Truth: (Jijnasu):

“He (Jijnasu) is a smallness trying to be great,
An animal with some instincts of a god, …
His hope a star above a cradle and grave.
And yet a greater destiny may be his, 
For the eternal Spirit is his truth.”

Savitri-78

“ There is no end to the world’s stupendous march,
There is no rest for the embodied soul (Jijnasu).
It must live on, describe all Time’s huge curve.
An Influx presses from the closed Beyond
Forbidding to him rest and earthly ease,
Till he has found himself he cannot pause…
And pure perfection and a shadowless bliss
Are this afflicted creature’s mighty fate.”

Savitri-339-40

 

Twice Born Soul (Dvija):

“One (twice born Soul) among many thousands (once born Soul) never touched,
Engrossed in the external world’s design,
Is chosen by a secret witness
Eye
And driven by a pointing hand of Light
Across his soul’s (Dvija’s) unmapped immensitudes.”
Savitri-80
“Even the many shall some (Dvija) answer make
And bear the splendour of the Divine’s rush
And his impetuous knock at unseen doors.”
Savitri-709
“ Abandoning the dubious middle Way,
A few shall glimpse the miraculous Origin
And some (Dvija) shall feel in you (Savitri) the secret Force
And they shall turn to meet a nameless tread, 
Adventurers into a mightier Day.”
Savitri-704
Some (Dvija) shall be made the glory’s receptacles
And vehicles of the Eternal’s luminous power.
These are the high forerunners, the heads of Time,
The great deliverers of earth-bound mind,
The high transfigurers of human clay, The first-born of a new supernal race.”
Savitri-705
 
 
Divine Instruments and Emanations:
          “A fire has come and touched men’s hearts and gone
 A few have caught flame and risen to greater life.”
Savitri-7
          “But few can look beyond the present state.”
Savitri-52
          “A few shall see what none yet understands;
        God shall grow up while the wise men talk and sleep;
For man shall not know the coming till its hour
       And belief shall be not till the work is done.”
Savitri-55
          “To a few is given that godlike rare release.
One among many thousands never touched,
Engrossed in the external world's design,
Is chosen by a secret witness Eye”
Savitri-80
          “Hardly a few can climb to greater life.
           All tunes to a low scale and conscious pitch...
          His force nears not even once the Omnipotent,
          Rare are his visits of heavenly ecstasy.”
Savitri-165
          “August and few the sovereign Kings of Thought
Have made of Space their wide all-seeing gaze
        Surveying the enormous work of Time:
A breadth of all-containing Consciousness
  Supported Being in a still embrace.”
Savitri-271
          “Only a few responded to her call:
Still fewer felt the screened divinity.”
Savitri-362
          “Immortal Powers sweep flaming past your doors;
         Far-off upon your tops the god-chant sounds
While to exceed yourselves thought’s trumpets call,
         Heard by a few, but fewer dare aspire,
         The nympholepts of the ecstasy and the blaze .”
Savitri-371
          “The gods are still too few in mortal forms.”
Savitri-372
          “A few and fit inhabitants she called
          To share the glad communion of her peace;
          The breadth, the summit were their natural home. .”
Savitri-381
          “Or opened the gates of freedom to a few.”
Savitri-383
          “Abrupt, jagged hills only the mighty climb
        Are here where few dare even think to rise;”
Savitri-425
          “A few are saved, the rest strive on and fail:
          A Sun has passed, on earth Night’s shadow falls.
          Yes, there are happy ways near to God’s sun;
          But few are they who tread the sunlit path;
          Only the pure in soul can walk in light ”
Savitri-448
          “There in the silence few have ever reached,
           Thou shalt see the Fire burning on the bare stone
           And the deep cavern of thy secret soul.”
Savitri-501
          “A few have dared the last supreme ascent
          And break through borders of blinding light above,
          And feel a breath around of mightier air,
          Receive a vaster being’s messages
         And bathe in its immense intuitive Ray.”
Savitri-659
          “Heaven and earth towards each other gaze
       Across a gulf that few can cross, none touch.”
Savitri-688
          “A few can climb to an unperishing sun,
      Or live on the edges of the mystic moon
And channel to earth-mind the wizard ray.   
     The heroes and the demigods are few
  To whom the close immortal voices speak
       And to their acts the heavenly clan are near.”
Savitri-689
          “Few are the silences in which Truth is heard,
          Unveiling the timeless utterance in her deeps;
          Few are the splendid moments of the seers.
          Heaven’s call is rare, rarer the heart that heeds;
          The doors of light are sealed to common mind
          And earth’s needs nail to earth the human mass,
          Only in an uplifting hour of stress
Men answer to the touch of greater things:”
Savitri-689
          “Abandoning the dubious middle Way,
         A few shall glimpse the miraculous Origin
         And some shall feel in you the secret Force
         And they shall turn to meet a nameless tread,
     Adventurers into a mightier Day.”
Savitri-704
 
           “I do not very readily accept disciples as this path of Yoga is difficult one and it can be followed only if there is a special call.”21
Sri Aurobindo
           “But the difficulty is to find the “someone” who knows Sri Aurobindo thoroughly to begin with, who is capable of receiving His inspirations directly (a very difficult condition), and has at the same time very strong character with a power—a contagious power—and a force that can arouse the inert masses… (and subsequently) What is needed (among the young people) is power combined with that breath of mind capable of understanding Sri Aurobindo’s inspiration and transmitting it; and along with that, vital power... (if possible) to have His genius20… For years I have been looking for that man, without finding him.” 19
The Mother
 
           “I do not want hundreds of thousands of disciples. It will be enough if I can get a hundred complete men, purified of petty egoism, who will be the instruments of God.”2
Sri Aurobindo
 
           “Even if one person could put himself faithfully at the disposal of the Truth, he could change the country and the world.”18
The Mother
 
           “There are very few people who carry with them an atmosphere which irradiates joy, peace, confidence- it is very rare. But these are truly benefactors of humanity. They don’t need to open their mouth.”
The Mother
 
           “All I would need is one man who had an absolute trust and was receptive, with a power of execution.”22

The Mother

 
           “That is exactly what Sri Aurobindo wanted and attempted; he used to say, “If I can find a hundred people, it will be enough for my purpose.”2

The Mother

           “Otherwise what will be ultimately accomplished is an achievement by the few initiating a new order of beings, while humanity will have passed sentence of unfitness on itself and may fall back into an evolutionary decline or a stationary immobility; for it is the constant upward effort (of the few) that has kept humanity alive and maintained for it its place in the front of creation.”23

Sri Aurobindo

           “In men, says the Upanishad, the Self-Existent has cut the doors of consciousness outward, but a few turn the eye inward and it is these who see and know the Spirit and develop the spiritual being”24

Sri Aurobindo

           “Many times in his writings, particularly in The Synthesis of Yoga, Sri Aurobindo warns us against the imaginings of those who believe they can do sadhana without rigorous self-control and who heed all sorts of inspirations, which lead them to a dangerous imbalance where all their repressed, hidden, secret desires come out into the open under the pretence of liberation from ordinary conventions and ordinary reason.”26

The Mother

 

           After the arrival of The Mother and Sri Aurobindo, the Supramental energy is active in earth’s atmosphere very close to the material world and this inner aid with constant miracle will replace the outer aid of Religion in generalising Spirituality in humanity and this personal contact with Supramental Consciousness will be initiated from individual prepared Soul Centres. So all can open themselves towards the Supramental Love and Oneness and receive its brief touch16 with miraculous result but the flow of this invisible Sunlight can be stabilised in the well built subtle and causal body of the prepared individual vessel or after one is thoroughly established in the intermediate Psychic and Spiritual plane through prolonged Sadhana. Intervention of this Force changes circumstances, brings very wide spread results and sooner or later the world will come under its direct influence. Thus the world appears to him with a different meaning, not a senseless and meaningless whirl in space but ‘A Presence and Greatness everywhere’17 transforming receptive matter to plastic and Spiritual Law and Divine Force can penetrate uninterruptedly into the material world through its conscious human vessel. Man’s future is ‘Decreed (to become God) since the beginning of the worlds.’15 An Avatara’s mission is fulfilled when the (consenting part of the) humanity arrives at a Consciousness in which He is fully established.

           Sri Aurobindo’s first and primary objective is accomplished if the surface personalities of few Sadhakas or ‘one hundred perfect instruments’2 reveal and establish the concealed Supramental Mahashakti and the secondary objective is with their help expedite the process of generalisation of Spirituality and revelation of Godhead in humanity.

           A relation between seeker of truth, traditional Yogi and integral Yogi is hinted in the Gita. “A seeker of truth, jijnasu, after many births of preparation, purification of impurity and sin, endeavouring with sincerity becomes a traditional Yogi and attains the highest goal of liberation of Soul or a Soul who fell from Yoga, yogabhrasta, from the past birth, in this birth strives with sincerity to overcome the samskara of many births in brief period of this life and attains the highest goal... After many births of preparation, a traditional Yogi, Jnani, attains My Purushottama or Supramental state of Consciousness. Before realisation of this highest Consciousness, he also realises the intermediate stair that all this existence is Divine, the Cosmic Consciousness, Vasudeva sarvamiti. Such great Soul with realisation of Vasudeva sarvamiti or integral Yogi is very rare, samahatma sudurlava.3

           A traditional Sadhaka, after realisation of Kshara, Akshara and Purushottama consciousness feels that this realisation cannot be reconciled6 with untransformed nature of three Gunas. So he has no unfinished task left and hence his blissful enjoyment of existence concentrates on the issue of freedom from rebirth and escapes into supreme abode of param dham through the passage of Purushottama state. In integral Yoga, after realisation of Kshara, Akshara and Purushottama consciousness or after realisation Psychic, Spiritual and Supramental Being, a Sadhaka’s difficult task prohibits blissful enjoyment of the fruit of his labour but begins of reconciling static Matter with dynamic Spirit and thus Divine Shakti pours into the material vessel and confronts with Subconscient dark forces. His Psychic, Spiritual and Supramental purification, transformation and perfection resumes action from firmly established Psychic heart centre and from firmly established Karma Yoga where Divine Will, Knowledge and Love are perfectly reconciled.

           Integral Yoga gives more importance to the emergence of Spiritual Instruments4 and traditional Yoga/Religion to the emergence of psycho-physical/religious Teachers;5 or “All religions and disciplines in India which use largely the psycho-physical method, depend more or less upon it for their practices.”1 The manifestation of some intermediate truth through traditional Yoga/Religion can draw large devotees and manifestation of highest and comprehensive truth through integral Yoga can draw few strong Souls. Traditional Yoga gives more importance to self-expansion and a traditional Teacher is weighed by number of disciples and devotees surrounded him. Integral Yoga gives more importance to Subconscient transformation through self-concentration and a Sadhaka of integral Yoga is weighed by his enhanced capacity to bear earth’s suffering and miseries and later transforming them into ecstasies. The perfect Instruments of integral Yoga with universalised Consciousness will preoccupy themselves for the benefit of individuals and humanity through concentration and illumination of their own subtle and causal body. They are nameless Spiritual leaders of humanity and their invisible world action through descent of Divine Force or reversal of Consciousness to resolve all problems of existence, are of far greater value than any religious movement can imagine.

           Those whose frontal surface nature is dominated by Courage and self-less Love, known as Kshetriya Soul Force and frontal Nature dominated by Truth and Wisdom, known as Brahmin Soul Force are recognised as superior human beings and are fit for collective Spiritual life. This work will be accelerated by the emergence of Kshetriya Soul force of courage and new adventure in the outer world and ceaseless battle against earthly opposition through activation of Psychic Being. The Mission will further spread by high nobility of Soul which is untouched by any littleness, narrowness and baseness and will move with a certain greatness of Spiritual conquest to confront with universal dark forces attached to present unstable creation and Supramental contagion to enter fierce battle with ‘giant sons of Darkness’7 of Subconscient/Inconscient world and bears ‘inner wounds that are to slow to heal.’8 This manifesting action further asks that state of reconciling Wisdom which can perfectly possess all the infinite variety of external circumstances and permeate the Divine Light and Love to all the nether, neglected and less explored domain and thus illumining the whole earth. This endeavour will drive forward towards the realisation of the vision as indicated in Savitri, “Mere men into spiritual beings grow And see awake the dumb divinity.”9

           The Synthesis of Yoga book (Principal Shastra) issues injunctions on a Sadhaka (Seeker of Truth) of integral Yoga that he should not remain indifferent to individual, collective and world imperfection and he should become accountable for his Sadhana (askesis) to his own Self, to the World and to the Divine25. Integral Yoga proposes that a developed Soul must not ‘look with a remote indifference on the’10 sufferings of the unblessed ordinary human being and blessed devotees and draws all of them towards Spirit’s freedom. Or ‘even if our personal deliverance is complete, still there is the suffering of others, the world travail, which the great of soul cannot regard with indifference.’11 ‘Accepting life, he (a Sadhaka of integral Yoga) has to bear not only his own burden, but a great part of the world’s burden too along with it, as a continuation of his own sufficiently heavy load. Therefore his Yoga has much more of the nature of a battle than others; but this is not only an individual battle, it is a collective war waged over a considerable country.’12 The forceful directive issued in the principal Shastra is to ‘leave nothing around it (liberated Soul Sadhaka) unchanged’13 superseding the previous stand ‘which will no way seek to change their outward appearance...and old human surroundings.’13 His personal and communal existence must ‘take full account of’14 present imperfection and he has to ‘see how it can be converted to the law of a possible perfection.’14
