The Pure Self

” At the gates of the Transcendent stands that mere and perfect spirit described in the Upanishads, luminous, pure sustaining the world…, without flaw of duality, without scar of division, unique, identical, free from all appearance of relation and multiplicity, – the pure Self…the inactive Brahman, the transcendent Silence. And the mind when it passes those gates suddenly…receives a sense of the unreality of the world and the sole reality of the Silence which is one of the most powerful and convincing experiences of which the human mind is capable. “

– From The Life Divine, Sri Aurobindo
