As I see it, the decisive action direct from the Supreme is the manifestation of the Supramental on earth. For this, the assignation with the Night, the bearing of the wounds that are slow to heal and the assertion (through identity) of divinity in the heart of the falsehood may be a part.
This aspect of avatarhood is actually not found in the Indian tradition and only appears in the Christian mythos. RY has brought out this possibility through his consideration of Sri Aurobindo's lines from Savitri and other poems and related these to a symbolic understanding of the Veda.
But equally an aspect of this manifestation is the legacy of the Word of integrality, the marvelous mantra which is not a representation but a self-presentation, swayambhu darshan. In my article, it is this aspect that I touch on. I try to point out that Sri Aurobindo's written work bears the mark of an integrality which is not constructed and which orders the partial truths of the human search for meaning attempted in the past. Such a darshan is to me as much a decisive action direct from the Supreme.
Trying to assert what is primary and what is secondary or worse, irrelevant, is a play of mental judgement which is not very interesting except to theologians. To acknowledge the incomprehensible and derive what insight we can in our growth towards its consciousness, is what matters. Reply
