Today is August 16th, the day after the 140th anniversary of Sri Aurobindo’s birth and also the 65th anniversary of Anandia’s independence of sorts from foreign rule.  We will talk today about the powerful significance of this non-coincidence.

From previous broadcasts here and from The Age of Ananda and website, many of you know by now that we are evolutionary beings of an eternal cit-shakti. Cns-energy.   Ananda, the bliss of pure consciousness, is the source, sustenance and goal of this universal saga of evolution. Evolution comes in two strands -- physical and spiritual -- and we have to both ascend and descend on the double helical elevator that traverses our spinal cord. Spiritual knowledge and realization has to be followed by a descent of the higher consciousness and its bliss to the cellular level to heal and transmute the body to a disease-free indefinitely long-living Homo anandicus form. As these transformations happen, society also gets automatically divinized.

This is the manifesto of living joyously and evolving consciously to the Life Divine, revealed and practiced by Sri Aurobindo and the Mother.  On the occasion of the anniversary of the MahaYogi, Brahmarishi, and Avatar JagadGuru Sri Aurobindo, let us remember his momentous message to all of humanity all over the world.

And it is uniquely given to Anandia, the dharmakshetra of the planet, to have this knowledge be carried in the bosom of the Vedas, nurtured and supported by the culture of the land of the rishis and siddhas, and to be re-revealed to us to meet the need of the times by SAM based on their own yogic explorations and discoveries at the highest levels of consciousness at one end, and the lowest stratum of life energy at the cellular level at the other.

The destinies of Anandia and Sri Aurobindo have been thus intertwined by the forces guiding our evolution.
