According to Aurobindo “Relics is vibrant focus of a special spiritual force that has been brought down from the World
of light to guide and lead its journey to the sun of truth”. If properly tended, the shrine grows in its radiation and remains ever new. Wherever the Relics are enshrined, there dwell immense peace and tranquility. Relics are the living Presence of Sri Aurobindo, imbued with the light and force of his lifelong sadhana, just as an atom contains an infinite power in itself -- this is the truth behind the Relics.
