19 hours ago - Sri Aurobindo said, "What is destiny? Evidently, it can't be the will of the individual. Then you have to accept that it is the working out of a Cosmic will. Then the question is whether the Cosmic Will is free or is bound?
Finally, we can conclude with what Sri Aurobindo said in Savitri, "Fate is a balance drawn in Destiny's book./ Man can accept his fate, he can refuse".
