All the beings you see here are manifestations of the Cosmic Form. This means that all are inherently Divine. What is that state of Cosmic Consciousness, the ultimate awareness called variously - enlightenment, nirvana, satori, samadhi, self-realization, rapture, salvation, ascension, unity consciousness, voidness, and many other terms by many various religions?

Darjeeling was a centre of British life in India and the school was run by Irish nuns, through which the boys would have been exposed to Christian religious teachings and symbolism. To achieve this it was necessary that they study in England and so it was there that the entire family moved in This was a prerequisite for admission to good English schools and, after two years, inthe elder two siblings were enrolled at Manchester Grammar School.
Aurobindo was considered too young for enrolment and he continued his studies with the Drewetts, learning history, Latin, Frenchgeography and arithmetic. Although the Drewetts were told not to teach religion, the boys inevitably were exposed to Christian teachings and events, which generally bored Aurobindo and sometimes repulsed him.

This meant that only Aurobindo might fulfil his father's aspirations but to do so when his father lacked money required that he studied hard for a scholarship.

He linked up with resistance groups in Bengal and Madhya Pradeshwhile traveling to these states. He established contact with Lokmanya Tilak and Sister Nivedita. Aurobindo often travelled between Baroda and Bengal, at first in a bid to re-establish links with his parent's families and other Bengali relatives, including his sister Sarojini and brother Barin, and later increased to establish resistance groups across the Presidency."Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa born Gadadhar Chattopadhyay was a Hindu religious teacher and an influential figure in the Bengal Renaissance of the Nineteenth century.
