శాశ్వతము, సర్వగతమును అయిన వస్తువును గుర్తించుటకు అవరోధములుగా వున్నవానిని తొలగించుటయే సాక్షాత్కారము. వస్తువు వున్నది. దానిని ఒకచోటి నుండి మఱియొక చోటికి తీసికొని పోవలసిన పని లేదు."

200 Some Parsi Ladies asked for Maharshi's opinion of Sri Aurobindo's Yoga and his claim to have probed beyond the experience of Vedic Rishis and the Mother's opinion of the fitness of her disciples to begin with the realisation of the Upanishadic Rishis.
Maharshi: Aurobindo advises complete surrender. Let us do that first and await results and discuss further if need be afterwards and not now.
Devotees: What about bringing down Divine Consciousness from above.
Maharshi: As if the same is not in the Heart? "O! Arjuna, I am in the expanse of the Heart." says Sri Krishna. "He who is in the sun, is also in the Man" says a mantra in the Upanishads. "The kingdom of God is within" says the Bible, All are thus agreed that God is within, What is to be brought down? From where? Who is to bring what and why?
Realisation is only the removal of obstacles to the recognition of the eternal, immanent reality. Reality is. it need not be taken from place to place.
