Today’s Quote:

“In the actual state of humanity, it is the individual who must climb to this height as a pioneer and precursor.  But if a collectivity or group could be formed of those who had reached the supra-mental perfection, there indeed some divine creation could take shape; a new earth could descend that would be a new heaven, a world of supra-mental light could be created here amidst the receding darkness of this terrestrial ignorance.”

— Sri Aurobindo
