Spiritual Individuality


January 01, 2002

  • By this it is meant the evolving spirit should replace the organised mental person in his aspect of individuality.
  • Individuality is defined by Him as the activity of the Purusha which by its universal spread contacts the world's experience and works out a vision for the individual to express in his personal life.
  • Initially it is enmeshed in the ego.
  • What emerges, then, in the place of individuality is an egoistic person in the society.
  • From the point of view of creation, it is transcendence expressing the universe in the inner life of a single person.
  • From man's point of view, he forms into a physical body, vital being, mental person and a spiritual Purusha by stages.
  • This is partial as it is in the ascent.
  • In the descent, it starts from the Supermind above and goes down to discover the spiritual being in each successive layer until it reaches the body.
  • History and the great souls of various periods can be traced along these lines.
  • The progress is not on a vertical line, but rises in a pyramid and the descent too is in another pyramid upside down.
  • Trying to place the Indian Rishis, Jesus, Buddha, Socrates, Hamlet, Shankara, Rama, Krishna, and every great man like Caesar, Napoleon, Alexander, etc. in this scale is possible.
  • Martin Luther is a landmark.
  • He was a pure spirit in the mind.
  • Now we need the Individuality of the evolving Spirit in the vital at the first stage and the mental in the second stage.
  • The supramental being is the last stage of this movement in the body of which mind is two steps away.
