Act XIII, Scene 4

(4 December 1950. Sri Aurobindo has not been keeping well for some time. But to-day he seems to feel better. He sits in a chair in spite of his attendants' objections.)

AN ATTENDANT: At last, our prayer has been heard! Are you not using your force to get rid of the disease?

SRI AUROBINDO: No.

AN ATTENDANT (failing to believe his ears): Why not? If you don't use the force, how is the disease going to be cured?

SRI AUROBINDO: Can't explain; you won't understand.
