Sri Aurobindo — Unknown addressee
December 19, 1934
Q: In an article written by a Swami on your book “The Riddle of this World”, he has remarked that you have the boldness to say that you have done what the Vedic Rishis could not do. What is the truth in this criticism?
A: It is not I only who have done what the Vedic Rishis did not do. Chaitanya and others developed an intensity of Bhakti which is absent in the Veda and many other instances can be given. Why should the past be the limit of spiritual experience?
