AlOchanaamR^itaM

AlochanaamR^itaM India-greatness In the noble heroic age of the Aryan people there was not so much shouting and gesticulating, but the endeavour they set in motion lasted many centuries. The Indian's endeavour [nowadays] lasts for a day or two.
You say what is needed is emotional excitement, to fill the country with enthusiasm. We did all that in the political field during the Swadeshi period; but all we did now lies in the dust....

Therefore I no longer wish to make emotional excitement, feeling and mental enthusiasm the base. I want to make a vast and herioc equality the foundation of my yoga; in all the activities of the being, of the aadhaar [vessel] based on that equality, I want a complete, firm and unshakable Shakti; over that ocean of Shakti I want the vast radiation of the sun of Knowledge and in that luminous vastness an established ecstasy of infinite love and bliss and oneness. I do not want tens of thousands of disciples; it will be enough if I can get as instruments of God a hundred complete men free from petty egoism. I have no faith in the customary trade of guru. I do not want to be a guru. What I want is that a few, awakened at my touch or at that of another, will manifest from within, their sleeping divinity and realise the divine life. It is such men who will raise this country.

- Sri Aurobindo (India's Rebirth, pp. 153)
