Sri Aurobindo Ashram , Puducherry

One of the influential place in Pondicherry, this ashram was evolved for spriritual realisation founded by the Sri Aurobindo , one of the leaders of the Nationalist movement as well as a spiritual leader along with his collaborator the Mother. After Sir Aurobindo,The Mother carried on his work until November 17, 1973 and till now by many other spiritual peoples of the ashram

As depicted by the Mother, Sir Aurobindo was quite in both heart and mind, has a very observational  power and a strong positive vibrational force that he has achieved through Internal Yoga .

All quotes are from the Collected Works of the Mother.

Sri Aurobindo came upon earth to teach this truth to men. He told them that man is only a transitional being living in a mental consciousness, but with the possibility of acquiring a new consciousness, the Truth-consciousness, and capable of living a life perfectly harmonious, good and beautiful, happy and fully conscious. During the whole of his life upon earth, Sri Aurobindo gave all his time to establish in himself this consciousness he called supramental, and to help those gathered around him to realise it.
from Volume 12, On Education, p.116
(24 July 1951)

I have seen Sri Aurobindo doing this in somebody's head, somebody who used to complain of being troubled by thoughts. It was as if his hand reached out and took hold of the little black dancing point and then did this (gesture with the finger-tips), as when one picks up an insect, and he threw it far away. And that was all. All still, quiet, luminous...
from Volume 9, Questions and Answers 1957-58, p.254
(8 January 1958)
