AlOchanaamR^itaM

AlochanaamR^itaM God and Kaliyuga God always keeps for himself a chosen country in which the higher knowledge is through all chances and dangers, ... continually preserved, and for the present, in this Chaturyuga at least, that country is India. Whenever he chooses to take the full pleasure of ignorance, of the dualities, of strife and wrath and tears and weakness and selfishness, ... of the play of the Kali [not Kaali], he dims the knowledge in India and puts her down into weakness and degradation so that she may retire into herself and not interfere with this movement of his Lila. When he wants Narayana in man to become once again mighty and wise and blissful, then he once more pours out the knowledge on India and raises her up so that she may give the knowledge with its necessary consequences of might, wisdom and bliss to the whole world.

When there is the contracted movement of knowledge, the yogins in India withdraw from the world
and practise yoga for their own liberation and delight or for the liberation of a few disciples; but when the movement of knowledge again expands and the soul of India expands with it, they come forth once more and work in the world and for the world. Yogins like Janaka, Ajatashatru and Kartavirya once more sit on the thrones of the world and govern the nations.

- Sri Aurobindo (Yoga and its Objects)
