Welcome to The New Horizon
Man lives with in a limited horizon, limited by ignorance, inertia, inconscience, falsehood, darkness, divisions, diseases and death. This has been so, since Man has appeared on the earthly scene, since the Homo Neanderthal stepped on earth.
However , he has been growing in spite of all these limitations. He lives with a Hope, with a Spiritthat has been fighting against all his difficulties, problems and shortcomings. He has come from the forest civilization to the civilizations of the Vedas, of the pyramids and the sphinx, of Harappa and Mohenjodaro, of Babylon, and from those moments to the One World civilization of the twenty-first century, It is also seen that Man has tried from the very beginning to grow some faith and Belief in a Higher Consciousness and Force, Who has been his Source and also his Help and Guide to lead him onwards against all these odds, trials andproblems, whether personal or social. And the result is his culture and civilization, his advancement in science and philosophy, his search of truth, beauty and goodness, of Satyam Shivam Sundaram, his progress in spirituality.
Man is, according to Sri Aurobindo, a transitional being. The human history is a story of a constant change and growth. But what he is now is a temporary phase, because his arrival on earth is a promise of a better, higher and much more conscious existence on earth.
There will be the advent of a being who will have conquest over ignorance and darkness and inertia, over divisions and all mental barriers, over the so-called fate and uncertainties, over diseases and death. The limitations of the present horizons will be broken, and man will pass on to The New Horizon. He shall have to pass onwards accordingly, or else he will have to face the Abyss. Man has to evolve into a higher being with a manifested divinity. This is the New Vision given to us by Sri Aurobindo and Mira Alfassa, whom we know as The Mother.
In order to march ahead towards The New Horizon, towards a world of a Higher Consciousness and Force and Joy, we shall have to believe in human progress and evolution. Man has the innate capacity to outgrow and master all his imperfections and darkness, and he should develop this and grow into a creative, constructive and divinized higher being.
The human society should also grow accordingly and conquer all darkness within and without, surpassing all racial, religious, linguistic, political and other artificial barriers.
Sri Aurobindo has said:
’Nature shall live to manifest secret God,
The Spirit shall take up the human play,
The earthly life become the life divine.’
Man has now the need to develop and increase his innate capacity to outgrow and master all his imperfections and darkness and grow into a creative, constructive and divinized higher being. The human society should also have to grow accordingly and conquer all darkness within and without, surpassing all racial, religious, linguistic, political and other artificial barriers, divisions and obstructions.
'Nature shall live to manifest secret God,
The Spirit shall take up the human play,
The earthly life become the life divine.'
And thus said the Mother [Mira Alfassa]:
'Man is the creation of Yesterday.
Sri Aurobindo came to announce the creation of tomorrow: the coming of the supramental being.'
This is your Destiny, your true Goal: to prepare yourself, to build yourself for the advent of the new world, new race, new Humanity, to march towards the New Horizon.
The Mother has told :
'A new world is born,
The things that were promised are fulfilled.'
If we aspire and endeavour, if we hope and have the dream, irrespective of our social division and differences based on castes, creeds, races, languages, states, religions and political ideas, we may accompany other aspirants to march towards The New World, towards The New Horizon.
Let us forget all the differences, all the divisions, and march onwards following The New Light.
Sri Aurobindo has told that a time will come, as early as we aspire
and endeavour and be worthy of, when a mightier race, a
supramental race, shall inhabit this earth. We shall have to
transmute and transform ourselves, so that we will grow into and
cause emergence of The New Race.
In the words of Sri Aurobindo:
'Then shall the embodied being live as one
Who is a thought, a will of the Divine,
A mask or robe of his divinity,
An instrument and partner of his Force,
A point or line drawn in the infinite,
A manifest of the Imperishable.
The supermind shall be his nature's fount,
The Eternal’s truth shall mould his thoughts and acts,
The Eternal’s truth shall be his light and guide.
All then shall change, a magic order come
Overtopping this mechanical universe.
A mightier race shall inhabit the mortal’ mortal’s world.'
If you are in search of Truth, of ever-growing Perfection, of the true
Art and Science of human life, in search of more light on the new
world, you are welcome here always.
The mankind, along with the earth, is now in a great turmoil and
chaos and disharmony. Everywhere, there is unrest and struggle
and warfare and violence. You are definitely aware of it. If you want
to be in search of the Light, if you want to discuss over the matter
and the problems and their solution, here you are welcome to find
and walk on the Way towards the solution, or to contribute your
The questions one may have about the future of the human beings,
about human progress and further human evolution, about our
striving towards more and more of perfection: one will find the
answers thereof in Sri Aurobindo and The Mother, and in the Light
They have presented before us on earth.
Let us march towards the New Consciousness, towards the New
Horizon, that Sri Aurobindo and The Mother have presented before us on earth.
Know Your Way
Know Your Destiny
Welcome to the New Horizon
The Man has the innate capacity to outgrow, overcome and surpass all his ignorance, limitations, imperfections and darkness, and he should develop and grow into a creative, constructive and divine higher being.
The human society should also grow in the same manner and conquer all darkness within and without, surpassing all racial, religious, linguistic, political and other artificial barriers, narrowness and limitations.
I believe in human progress and evolution. I believe that the Time has already come when Man should remould his life, individually and collectively, so that he can cross all his limitations and emerge as a higher, mightier, divine race, no more subject to ignorance and unconsciousness and mortality and diseases.
Sri Aurobindo says:
Abandoning the dubious Middle Way,
Few shall glimpse the miraculous Origin
And some shall feel in you the secret Force
And they shall turn to meet a nameless tread,
Adventurers into a mightier Day.
Ascending out of the limiting breadths of mind
They shall discover the world’s huge design
And step into the Truth, the Right, the Vast.
Sri Aurobindo again says:
A mightier race shall inhabit the mortal’s world.
On Nature’s luminous tops, on the Spirit’s ground,
The superman shall reign as king of life,
Make earth almost the mate and peer of heaven
And lead towards God and truth man’s ignorant earth
And lift toward godhead his mortality.
According to Sri Aurobindo, this earth, which so far has been a mortals’ world, shall be inhabited by a mightier race, the supramental race. And the earth shall be then transmuted to become almost an equal of the heaven. The very foundations of Darkness shall then be attacked by Light, and Divine Harmony shall then rule this earth.
He says again:
Then in the process evolving Time
All shall be drawn into a single plan,
A divine harmony shall be the earth’s law
And beauty and Joy remould her way to live :
Even the body shall remember God,
Nature shall drawback from mortality
And Spirit’s fires shall guide the earth’s blind force;
Knowledge shall bring into the aspirant Thought
A high proximity to Truth and God.
A time will then come, says Sri Aurobindo, when ultimately death will be conquered, and earth’s blind forces will also be controlled by the fires of the Spirit.
I say, following The Mother [Mira Alfassa]:
Man is the creation of Yesterday.
Sri Aurobindo came to announce the creation of tomorrow:
the coming of the supramental being.
And for this coming of the supramental being, Sri Aurobindo says that Man has to ascend from Mind to various higher levels of Mind, and then to the Supermind. Man has to go through the ways of Transformation. And when the human aspiration rises to a height, then only Supermind shall descend on earth.
The Mother [Mira Alfassa] declares that the Time has already come. Let me quote the relevant message from the Mother from Mother’s Agenda, vol.1 : FIRST SUPRAMENTAL MANIFESTATION [ From Mother’s Agenda, vol.1 ]
(During the common meditation on Wednesday
The 29th February 1956)
This evening the Divine Presence, concrete and material, was there present amongst you. I had the form of a living gold, bigger than the universe, and I was facing a huge and massive golden door, which separated the world from the Divine.
As I looked at the door, I knew and willed, in a single movement of consciousness, that ‘the time has come’, and lifting with both hands a mighty golden hammer I struck one blow on the door and the door was shattered to pieces.
Then the supramental Light and Force and Consciousness rushed down upon earth in an uninterrupted flow.
The Mother [Mira Alfassa] declares that the Time has already come. Let me quote the relevant message from the Mother from Mother’s Agenda, vol.1 :
FIRST SUPRAMENTAL MANIFESTATION
[ From Mother’s Agenda, vol.1 ]
This earth is a field of Evolution. Evolution is the history of life on earth. This has been well said by Darwin. According to him, man is the consequence of an evolution. But Darwin has stopped with the appearance of Homo Neanderthal. He was silent about evolution after the appearance of man on earth, or even about why man was evolved at all. And his view was a scientific truth, limited to the epistemology of Science. Science discovers and finds the Truth. But that is only a partial aspect of the whole Truth; it does not go beyond the senses, beyond the apparent. Its bases are experiences of the senses.
For explaining why He adopted the term "psychic being" Sri
Aurobindo has stated as follows:
"The word soul is very vaguely used in English- as it often refers to the whole non-physical consciousness including even the vital with all its desires and passions. That is why the word psychic being has to be used so as to distinguish this divine portion from the instrumental parts of the nature."
Regarding the psychic transformation and the first stages of the spiritual transformation, Sri Aurobindo has said that they are "well within our conception"; the perfection attained in the psychic transformation and the early stages of the spiritual transformation would be "the perfection, wholeness, consummated unity of a knowledge and experience which is already part of things realised, though only by a small number of human beings". But about the supramental transformation, he states that it "carries us into less explored regions". It "initiates a vision of heights of consciousness which have indeed been glimpsed and visited, but have yet to be discovered and mapped in their completeness".
He further states:
"The highest of these peaks or elevated plateaus of consciousness, the supramental, lies far beyond the possibility of any satisfying mental scheme or map of it or any grasp of mental seeing and description." [Relevant portions from Sri Aurobindo are quoted without any abridgement or distortion.]
Sri Aurobindo has further stated:
The supramental change is the thing decreed and inevitable in the evolution of the earth-consciousness; for its upward ascent is not ended and mind is not its last summit. But the change may arrive, take form and endure, there is needed the call from below with a will to recognise and not deny the Light when it comes, and there is needed the sanction of the Supreme from above.
The Mother has stated :
The Manifestation of the Supramental upon earth is no more a promise but a living fact, a reality. It is at work here, and one day will come when the most blind, the most unconscious, even the most unwilling shall be obliged to recognise it.
Thus, we can see that Mind has reached the its last ranges and is on the process of handing over the task of the Evolution to the supramental consciousness. This is the Truth. We should no longer remain limited within the ranges of our ordinary small ranges of the Mind, but should endeavour to transcend our mental selves and begin our inner journey to the New Creation taken up by the supramental consciousness. This is the Truth.
The Mother has given us a message in 1967:
Men, countries, continents!
The choice is imperative:
Truth or the abyss.
Let us always remember that the choice is imperative.
And that is the Destiny of this earth, of mankind. Man has to reach this Goal. We have to live for this Future.
The Mother gave us another message:
Blessed are those who take a leap towards the Future.
What is this Future?
The Supramental Manifestation on earth is the Future. This will be through the human beings, if they cooperate. If you cooperate, you serve the Truth. Or else, the Creative Force will pass by you, ignore you, and fulfill its Goal through some other means.
Supermind is not a higher mind. It is beyond all ranges of Mind. It is a Higher Consciousness, surpassing all the stages and planes of Mind. In between our ordinary Mind and the Supermind, Sri Aurobindo speaks of four stages of Mind: the Higher Mind, the Illumined Mind, the Intuitive Mind, and then, the Overmind. To begin with, Overmind is the highest stage where the mental consciousness could reach till the Advent of the Supermind. It is the Plane of the gods and goddesses. It is the plane, which the several Avatars of the Supreme manifested and represented on earth. It is the Consciousness of represented by Sri Krishna on earth, according to Sri Aurobindo. These planes need be defined and described further in details, but let us have patience ; we will look into this issue on another day.
Man has problems. He has sufferings, defeats, imperfections, incompleteness, failures, diseases, ignorance, darkness, inertia, animal hungers, dissatisfactions, sorrows and death. He is limited, imprisoned, in chains everywhere. And he finally succumbs to an unwelcome death.
But he questions his imperfections, incompleteness, ignorance, darkness, diseases, and even his death. He has an inborn aspiration to overcome all these and to have the conquest over all his imperfections and defeats. He has tried to fulfil this aspiration by his progress and growth in knowledge and use and application of sciences, foundation of philosophies and schools of thoughts, and researches into the spiritual domain, through political and social changes, reformations and revolutions, through economic changes, through industrial and agricultural reformations and growth, and through religions. There have been prophets, seers and sages from time immemorial, philosophers, scientists and socio-political thinkers, but Man find himself back at the square one. Some persons might have attained moksha [spiritual liberation] or nirvana or nearness to the heavenly Lord, but the trillions and trillions of human beings are at the same place, in front of the Sphinx.
As long as man continues to remain what he has been so long in the past fifty millennia or so, since the days of the Homo Sapiens, bound to his past and his limitations and imperfections and incapacities, his ignorance and darkness, there cannot be any hope for him.
He must solve the riddle of existence. He must surpass himself, cross his limitations, aspire to transcend himself and prepare himself for the new World.
Says the Mother :
Sri Aurobindo came on earth from the Supreme to announce the manifestation of a new race and a new world, the Supramental.
This is your true Destiny, your true Goal: to prepare yourself, to build yourself for the advent of the new world, new race, new Humanity, to march towards the New Horizon, to grow towards becoming the Supramental being.
The Transformation from the human being to the supramental being has three phases: the psychic transformation, the spiritual transformation and the supramental transformation. The psychic transformation is the indispensable and inevitable phase: to know yourself and to be yourself. The Apex of the aspiration to know yourself and be yourself is this psychic transformation. Unveil your psychic being, manifest it and then transform yourself with its light and knowledge and power and joy. This is the beginning.
