Guiding Light of The Month

O Lord, how ardently do I call and implore Thy love! Grant that my aspiration may be intense enough to awaken the same aspiration everywhere: oh, may good- ness, justice and peace reign as supreme masters, may ignorant egoism be overcome, darkness be suddenly illu- minated by Thy pure Light; may the blind see, the deaf hear, may Thy law be proclaimed in every place and, in a constantly progressive union, in an ever more perfect harmony, may all, like one single being, stretch out their arms towards Thee to identify themselves with Thee and manifest Thee upon earth. - The Mother

Question of the month

Q: It seems to me that the very land of Auroville aspires. Is it true, Sweet Mother ?

A: The Mother: Yes, the land itself has a consciousness, even though this consciousness is not intellectualized and cannot express itself.

(Shyam Sunder Jhunjhunwala, From the Editor’s Desk, ‘Some Socio-Spiritual Perspectives, Sri Aurobindo Action’, Pondicherry)

Q: What is the right thing that we should expect from You ?

A: The Mother: Everything.

Q: What have You been expecting from us and from humanity in general for the accomplishment of Your Work upon earth ?

A: The Mother: Nothing.
Q: From Your long experience of over sixty years, have You found that Your expectation from us and from humanity has been sufficiently fulfilled?

A: The Mother: As I am expecting nothing I cannot answer this question.

Q: Does the success of Your Work for us and for humanity depend in any way upon the fulfilment of Your expectation from us and from humanity ?

A: The Mother: Happily not.

(Note: On Feb 25, 1968 the New Age Association held a seminar given by the Mother: "What we expect from the Mother." ‘For a start the Mother herself was asked a series of questions, and pat came the answers.’ - K.R. Srinivasa Iyengar in ‘On The Mother’, Sri Aurobindo Ashram Trust, Pondicherry)
