Correspondence with Sri Aurobindo
The Complete Set
I can't resist the temptation of disturbing your Sabbath, Sir; here is a poem. The forceps were indispensable, but I hope it will be an “Angel”!
It is not bad at all – can be accorded the “order of merit”. Traces of the forceps are visible. But if you go on, probably the forceps will not be indispensable.
One point, is there any truth in this “white flame” of the Purusha? The psychic being is supposed to be aflame, but it's also called the Secret Purusha. The image is then correct?
Of course the image is quite legitimate for the psychic being. The psychic being is a Purusha, not a flame – the psychic fire is not the being, it is something proper to it.
