Guiding Light of The Month

THERE is a great difference between being in the midst of active work, of external action, while keeping one’s thought constantly fixed on Thee, and entering into that perfect union with Thee which leads to what I have called “absolute Consciousness, true Omniscience, Knowledge”. - The Mother

Question of the month

In the entry dated 24.8.1914 in ‘Prayers and Meditations’ Mother speaks of “the Dawn that never ends.”


Thy grace is with us, Lord, and it never leaves us, even when appearances are dark; night is sometimes necessary to prepare more perfect dawns. But perhaps this time Thou hast placed us in the presence of the Dawn that does not pass away.

- The Mother, ‘Prayers and Meditations’, August 24th 1914


“What spiritual state does this marvellous dawn represent?” I asked her.

She answered: “Perpetual renewal.”
