Act IV, Scene 5(Evening. Barin, with some of his friends, experiments with a Planchette. Aurobindo keenly observes it. They invoke the spirit of Ramakrishna. The Planchette moves.)
BARIN: Thakur, Thakur, through your infinite kindness you have appeared before us. Please tell us whether our freedom movement will be a success or not.
(The spirit of Ramakrishna remains silent.)
BARIN: Thakur, pray give us your advice. We shall obey you.
(Ramakrishna continues silent.)
BARIN: It seems you are displeased with us. We are helpless, blind human beings. Show us the way to fulfil our ideal.
(The Planchette writes out the sentence: Mandir gado, mandir gado [Make temples, make temples]. The spirit disappears.)
BARIN: Sejda, Ramakrishna has at last said, Mandir gado, mandir gado. What does it signify?
AURO: I believe Ramakrishna Paramahansa wishes us to establish temples in our hearts.
BARIN: What for?
AURO: Barin have faith in Ramakrishna. He was the dearest child of Mahakali. He was God manifest in a human being. We shall in the years to come realise the significance of making temples in the inmost recesses of our hearts.
