Keys of Supramental Knowledge

The New Language of Form

“The New Language has various components which form its basic alphabet. These are principally the novemal (decimal) system, the calendar, the measuring system of space, the solar system—which includes the zodiac—and the treasure of myths and prophecies that have been preserved throughout the ages.

“A synthesis of all these constitutes our new language, for it can be immediately understood that on these lines the language that is born becomes…universal. But the synthesis is not a construed one. It is not arrived at through the mind…[It] can unfold only in a thoroughly spontaneous manner on the basis of real yogic experiences. The new language is a revelation which transcends Mind, and uses that instrument only for the organisational aspect of the seeing—which is its true function… The revelation comes through other channels and finds its response in the soul. It is from there that the body of the seed-truth, or the new language, arises.”

—The New Way, 1, pp 98-100

“The ascent of man into heaven is not the key but rather the descent of the Spirit into his normal humanity and the transformation of his earthly nature. For that and not some post mortem salvation is the real new birth for which humanity awaits.”

—Sri Aurobindo
