Letters of Sri Aurobindo
Fragment ID: 8455
Is it possible for another being to take birth in a human being’s কারণ দেহ [kāraṇa deha] and see everything from that standpoint?
The কারণ দেহ may be simply a form answering to the higher consciousness (overmental, intuitive etc.) and I suppose a being could be there working in that consciousness and body. It is not likely to be the supramental being and supramental body – for in that case the whole consciousness, thought, action subjective and objective would begin to be faultlessly true and irresistibly effective. Nobody has reached that stage yet, even the overmind is, for all but the Mother and myself, either unrealised or only an influence mostly subjective.
