Re: The Death of Man or Post-Humanism 101 by RY Deshpande
We have a letter from Sri Aurobindo about Shelley, the British romantic poet. When Amal asked him if Harindranath Chattopadhaya was the reincarnation of Shelley, he replied: “I imagine Shelley was not an evolutionary being but a being of a higher plane assisting the evolution.” Could that not be the reason also for his suffering here in a very poignant way?—“I fall upon the thorns of life, I bleed.” It is said that at the beginning of the Indian independence movement, about a hundred years ago, special souls had come down to participate in it. Sri Aurobindo has spoken about the necessity of India’s freedom for his spiritual work. Are these not connected with it?
