The New Creation I
A new creation from the old shall rise…. [Bk 3 Co 3 Savitri]
A New Creation from the old shall rise … so says Sri Aurobindo. The old humanity, the old earth, shall yield to the New Humanity, the new earth, which shall be on the way towards conquest of all darkness and divisions and decay and death, all ignorance and inconscience and inertia, all falls and failures and frustrations. The New Consciousness, the Supramental Consciousness, shall transform the mankind towards Light, towards Oneness, towards Knowledge and Wisdom and Truth, towards Perfection and Immortality.That is the consequence of what Sri Aurobindo and The Mother have done for the humanity and the earth.
Sri Aurobindo has said in Savitri :
A mightier race shall inhabit the mortal man’s world.
On Nature’s luminous tops, on the Spirit’s ground,
The superman shall reign king of life,
Make earth almost the mate and peer of heaven
And lead toward God and truth man’s ignorant earth
And lift towards godhead his mortality.
Let us ever remember Sri Aurobindo and The Mother and renew our Aspiration and our Hope for the New Way, for the New Consciousness and Being, for the Progress and Transformation towards the New Man, the New Race.
Sri Aurobindo is the Person, who has given the most hopeful meaning of the human existence, of the Creation. He has given us the greatest Hope, the greatest Dream, of Joy and Bliss and the Widest Consciousness and of an eternal, immortal existence. He was not satisfied with Moksha or Nirvana, nor did He ask us to be so satisfied. We will be transformed into an immortal Race, a new Race, who will not live in Darkness or in Ignorance or in Transience and Death.
He, the Avatar of the Supreme, granted with His signature of Tathastu [So be it] to the Vedic prayer of a few millennia:
Asato maa sadgamaya
Tamaso maa jyotirgamaya
Lead me from non-existence to Existence,
Lead me from Darkness to Light,
Lead me from Death to Immortality.
Sri Aurobindo said : So be it. And it is becoming So. He showed us the Way, the New Way, transcending and surpassing Moksha and Nirvaana. You need not leave the World, the Manifestation — for everything is He, the All-Existence. The Creation, the Manifestation, is His Will — can anyone go beyond His Will? For, in everyone, He is manifest and He is hidden.
