Q: The other day you spoke of the fundamental personality. I couldn’t quite understand you.
There are two things here—the personality and the Person— which are not the same. The Person is the eternal Divine Purusha assuming many personalities and thrown out into Time as the Cosmic and as the Individual for a particular purpose, use or work. Even as the Individual, this Purusha is all the time conscious of identity with the Cosmic. That is why liberation of the Individual is possible.
– Sri Aurobindo
