Q: In The Life Divine there is a quotation where you have said, “May the restrainers tell us to go to other fields and conquer them.” Anilbaran thought “restrainers” refers only to Yogis and Tapaswis.
“Restrainers” is perhaps not the right word. “Binders” would have been better. The obstacles bind you down and point out your imperfections. When you have overcome they tell you as it were, “Now you have got the right to conquer other fields.”
– Sri Aurobindo
