Correspondence with Sri Aurobindo

The Complete Set

I enclose a poem. The philosophical conception expressed therein may perhaps be wrong, because the Purusha is supposed to be inactive only giving sanction to Prakriti. Isn't it so? I have represented the Lord with dynamism along with static poise.

That is the Sankhya Purusha – the Purusha of the Gita is Dishware also. The objection as philosophy is correct. Poetically – the opening is heavy, but the rest is good.

There is a notion that with the approach of Darshan there is a greater descent of Force. I don't feel any difference. But they corroborate their theory by the evidence of an upheaval of vital troubles etc. I think one should feel more calm and peace. Which view do you subscribe to? And is it a fact that there is such a descent?

There is usually a descent, but there is also a great opposition to the descent at these times. Some feel the descent only, some feel the opposition only, some feel both the descent and the opposition.
