    The Greater Plan.

    On 12 September 1939, Sri Aurobindo wrote the following sonnet; THE GREATER PLAN I am held no more by life’s alluring cry, Her joy and grief, her charm, her laughter’s lute.

    The Descent into Night – Savitri

    His name the index of a failing hope, The position of a dead remembered star.
