Life upon earth is an adventure and has its own share of charm and dangers. The seeking for safety and security in this ‘delightful and dangerous world’ is therefore quite a legitimate need. As always, Nature has already provided for us certain safety measures. However we are often unaware of these inbuilt means of our defence. In addition there are inner means that can be developed methodically which can further augment our protection. Finally, to someone who has turned towards the Divine making his whole life an offering at the sacred altar, there is a further and special protection that helps his journey. Nevertheless, all these means act usually within limits and except for rare instances need certain inner conditions for their full working. In this issue we share the Light that the Mother and Sri Aurobindo have shed on this complex subject of Protection.
