Publisher's Note: "This article was first issued in May 1948. It is now separately printed as it may prove helpful in making clear the significance of Sri Aurobindo's work in the present world-crisis" -- in part, at least, the January '48 assassination of the Mahatma, referred to in the text as "the recent disaster"
