Such a time has now come again & such a sacrifice is demanded again

Tusarji, I am commenting here again because it has to do with another message of The Master, a message given a hundred years ago on 23rd August 1907 to the students of the Bengal National College, it continues to remain relevant & stirring & shall so remain for ages & as long as India's quest for developing spiritual nationalism continues:
"There are times in a nation's history when Providence places before it one work, one aim, to which everything else, however high and noble in itself, has to be sacrificed. Such a time has now arrived for our motherland when nothing is dearer than her service, when everything else is to be directed to that end. If you will study, study for her sake;train yourselves body and mind and soul for her service. You will earn your living that you may live for her sake. You will go abroad to foreign lands that you may bring back knowledge with which you may do service to her. Work that she may prosper. Suffer that she may rejoice. All is contained in that one single advice..." - 23 August 1907 (Sri Aurobindo)
I may say that such a time has now come again & such a sacrifice is demanded again, may all Savitri Erans rise to the demand & may the Savitri Era Party embody that message in this age & time. 6:49 PM, August 22, 2007
