Letters of Sri Aurobindo
Volume 1. 1933-34
Fragment ID: 16732
So far as we know all the Avatars came down here in order to deliver the world from falsehood, dark-ness, vices etc., at least to a certain extent. Each of them preached against these things.
I am not concerned with what the Avatars did or are supposed to have done (though in that case Krishna seems to have done some very queer and undivine things). My business is with rising above the human consciousness and not with fulfilling limited human ideals; and I look at things from that standpoint.
