Sri Aurobindo, the illumined and inspired seer-poet, has raised poetry to the level of mantra

Tributes To Sri Aurobindo

"Brahman defies description, mind and speech return baffled from it. Likewise Sri Aurobindo defies description, no adjective, no epithet, no appellation seems to be adequate. So universal is his genius, so many-faceted his personality, so varied his life and career that mind and speech are overwhelmed and fall silent when confronted by him, a being with peer, -- scholar, journalist, educationist, politician, statesman, revolutionary leader, nation-builder, poet, philosopher, lover of humanity, lover of God, Yogi, Guru and Master.

Sri Aurobindo the illumined and inspired seer-poet has raised poetry to the level of mantra and transformed English into a devabhasa, a language of the gods.
