Correspondence with Sri Aurobindo
The Complete Set
I send a poem, rather a long one. It's addressed to P, can I send it to him?
Yes. The beginning of the poem seems to me to have some strength in it. The rest spins itself out rather thinly at too great a length. A more compact and original thought and expression are needed.
Is there not a difference between the sleep before 12 and after?
The sleep before 12 is supposed to be the best.
I had a very peculiar dream last night. I'm almost ashamed to write about it. I heard someone saying to me in Bengali, in Shiva's aṅśa is your birth, as soon as I got up I was in a flood of joy and devotion for Shiva.
Everyone's inner being is born in the aṅśa of some Devata.
Birth and tradition of this life are not everything – there have been previous lives also which one carries on into this one and a future also which is already existent in the present.
