Sri Aurobindo's Ideograph

Apropos Samata (Equality)

By Samata, equality, is meant a certain attitude of the whole being towards the world and its happenings. The world is full of so many things which are horrible and terrible. Samata means that one should be able to look at them from a certain poise without being perplexed or moved...

Samata is an attitude of the whole being. Pity and sentimentalism are results of nervous repulsion, some movement in the vital being.
