Sadhana for the Earth Consciousness 
If the preparatory work for the supramental descent into the earth consciousness goes on so slowly, will it not be years before the earth consciousness is wholly transformed?
There is no proposal to transform the whole earth consciousness – it is simply to introduce the supramental principle there which will transform those who can receive and embody it.
