Guiding Light of The Month

I knew well that none could invoke Thy presence in vain and if in the sincerity of our hearts we commune with Thee through no matter what organism, body or human collectivity, this organism in spite of its ignorance finds its unconsciousness wholly transformed. - The Mother

To the heights

Faint Heart! Kindle your faith and take courage!
Stupendous obstacles block the way.
But omnipotent is the Power that awaits you,
And under her ensign you will conquer-
Conquer all that looks unconquerable
And much more besides,
Worlds now beyond reach and out of sight.

The little being within appears so small and so helpless!
And yet it is the diamond-point
That cuts through even the hardest matter as through water,
It is the streak of light that easily pierces
The densest sway of darkness.

There is a breath that moves mountains,
There is a touch that makes the dead arise,
There is a voice that is the doom of Yesterday.
And the radiant herald of Tomorrow.

- Nolini Kanta Gupta (26-May-1933)
