The Vaishya, Mitra, and Mahalakshmi

She is Mahalakshmi, the goddess of the supreme love and delight, and her gifts are the spirit's grace and the charm and beauty of the Ananda and protection and every divine and human blessing: Location: Home > E-Library > Works Of Sri Aurobindo > Synthesis Of Yoga Volume-21 > Faith And Shakti

The miracle of eternal beauty, an unseizable secret of divine harmonies, the compelling magic of an irresistible universal charm and attraction that draws and holds things and forces and beings together and obliges them to meet and unite that a hidden Ananda may play from behind the veil and make of them its rhythms and its figures. This is the power of MAHALAKSHMI and there is no aspect of the Divine Shakti more attractive to the heart of embodied beings.

The Divine is boundless consciousness, perfect in knowledge, pure and therefore luminously right in its discernment of things, perfectly harmonious and happy in its concordance of their law and nature; Mitra brings us this light and harmony, this right distinction and relation and friendly concord, the happy laws of the liberated soul concordant with itself and the Truth in all its rich thought, shining actions and thousandfold enjoyment.

The Purusha Sukta of the Rig Veda describes the self-sacrifice of Purusha by “quartering” Himself into the four varnas – Brahmins, Kshatriyas, Vaishyas and Sudras. The Pancharatra emanationaism follows this in seeing a Supreme Narayana emanate Himself into four descendants, the Vrishni heroes who can be identified as lords of the the four varnas – Vasudeva or Mahavira for the Brahmin, Sankarshana or Balarama for the Kshatriya, Pradyumna for the Vaishya and Aniruddha for the Sudra. For further details on Pancharatra, see Matsubara (Matsubara, 1994). [Sri Aurobindo seems to write in order to explain a...] [True intent of the caste system | Integral Yoga of Sri Aurobindo ...]
