Sri Aurobindo — Nahar, Prithwi Singh
... Do the gods then come as in the days of old to accept your Guidance Supreme and, by manifesting themselves when the ground will be ready, help in the work of reconstructing the world in accordance with your Divine Will?
With deep devotion
What you say is correct – it is for that the gods come and not for transformation. While the gods cannot be transformed, for they are typal and not evolutionary beings, they can come for conversion – that is to say, to give up their own ideas and outlook on things and conform themselves to the higher will and supramental Truth of the Divine.
