Mercifully Sri Aurobindo stops there

The last two chapters of The Life Divine are defining moments in the whole project of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo; but the overall emphasis of one chapter is quite dissimilar to the other. One relies on the individual while the other is oriented towards the collective. One seems to stress the course of tapasya; the other, practice in joyful participation. With one, one faces a wall as it were; an insurmountable abstraction, whereas a happy humanization is encountered in the other. Mercifully Sri Aurobindo stops there. [TNM]
