Guiding Light of The Month

Tell me, wilt Thou grant me the marvellous power to give birth to this dawn in expectant hearts, to awaken the consciousness of men to Thy sublime presence, and in this bare and sorrowful world awaken a little of Thy true Paradise? What happiness, what riches, what terrestrial powers can equal this wonderful gift! - The Mother

Reflections on the 4th of April 2010

Everyone who attended had a very solemn experience journeying through an hour-and-a-half- long programme, starting with readings from ‘Savitri’ and The Mother’s ‘Prayers and Meditations’.

The Vedic chanting of ‘Purusha Suktam’ and ‘Sri Suktam’ by Sri Krishnamurthy and Sri Ramanathan gave the listeners immense joy of feeling the PARAMA PURUSHA in their hearts where goddess Lakshmi resides to open the channels of love and devotion.

I perceive the ‘Durga Stotram’ by Sri Aurobindo to be a power-packed plea if chanted in real yearning, transforming us from Human to Divine.
‘Mother Awakens’ read by Smt. Sundari was very inspirational.

Bhajans by Smt. Padmini on Guru and The Divine Mother were a fitting finish to the sacred evening. The melodious music made us sway in ecstasy.
Overall, I felt the occasion was indeed a fertile moment to nurture the growth of God in us to transform our body, mind and the vital.
