Correspondence with Sri Aurobindo
The Complete Set
Mother, in the pranam your looks vary so much from day to day that one cannot but realise at once that they have a significance. Today, I could make out that you wanted to tell me something but I could not understand what it was. I went over all the incidents of the day – no result!
It was only to keep yourself clear from all influences except the Mother's.
Can I have tea at Dilip's place, in the morning?
I hope there won't be any “encouragement of cravings”. Of course, I have not been able to trace any outward bad effects from such occasional indulgence.
If it is occasional and you have no attachment, it is all right.
I am trying, as you asked me, to give Sanjiban, a general idea of the surface of the body to help him in his painting.
Yes, that is it; especially the proportions and forms and the deformations coming by movement e.g. contraction of muscles in different positions etc.
