Act XIII, Scene 5

(Sri Aurobindo's passing. Date: 5 December 1950. Ashram premises. Inmates in tears. A disciple comes down with a message from the Mother and reads.)
"To grieve is an insult to Sri Aurobindo, who is here with us conscious and alive."

(A profound stillness falls over all. Into drooping spirits passes the force of the Mother's words. An air of assurance reigns. Tears give way to confidence.)
