Significance of Prayers: Words of Sri Aurobindo and The Mother
Description
From the Book

To entire into relations with God is Yoga, the highest rapture & the noblest utility. There are relations within the compass of the humanity we have developed. These are called prayer, worship, adoration, sacrifice, thought, faith, science, philosophy. These are other relations beyond our developed capacity, but within the compass of the humanity we have yet to develop. Those are the relations that are attained by the various practices we usually call Yoga.

How To Pray
…the prayer must well up from the heart on a crest of emotion or aspiration.

You have laid stress on the Bhakti theory that one has only to call his name and he must reply, he must at once be there. Perhaps, but for whom is this true? For a certain kind of Bhakta surely who feels the feel of the Name, who has the passion of the Name and pup it into his cry. If one is like that, then there may be the immediate reply — if not, one has to become like that, then there will be the reply.

I had already hinted to you that to be able to wait for the Divine Grace (not in a tamasic spirit but with sattwic reliance) was the best course for you. Prayer, yes — but not prayer insisting on immediate fulfilment -but prayer that is itself a communion of the mind and heart with the Divine and can have the joy and satisfaction of itself, trusting for fulfilment by the Divine in his own time.
