Science has 'explained'nothing: the more we know the more fantastic the world becomes and the profounder the surrounding darkness.
But, if the knowledge of the occult powers of nature opens the spiritual sight of man, enlarges his intellectual faculties, and leads him unerringly to a profounder veneration for the Creator, on the other hand ignorance, dogmatic narrow-mindedness, and a childish fear of looking to the bottom of things, invariably leads to fetish-worship and superstition.Helena Petrovna Blavatsky
India is the guru of the nations, the physician of the human soul in its profounder maladies; she is destined once more to remould the life of the world and restore the peace of the human spirit. But Swaraj is the necessary condition of her work and before she can do the work , she must fulfil the condition.Sri Aurobindo, in Sri Aurobindo Mandir Annual (1947), p. 196
