Aurobindo Ghosh

" God descending into materiality is what we call humanity, with Matter as the lowest principle and Absolute Being as the highest " , wrote Aurobindo. He was also one of the greatest writers of all time. In his epic poem, " Savitri ", he depicts the victory of Mortality by Immortality or Self Actualisation.

Everything is done by the divine Conscious Force

A luminous heart of the Unknown is She
A power of Silence in the depths of God
She is the Force, the inevitable word,
The magnet of our difficult ascent,
The Sun from whom we kindle all our suns,
The Light that leans to us from the Unrealised vasts,
The Joy that beckons us from the impossible " ( Savitri)

It is said that at the time of samadhi, his body became golden !
