Guiding Light of The Month

In this immense heroic struggle, in this sublime struggle of love against hatred, of justice against injustice, of obedience to Thy supreme law against revolt, may I gradually be able to make humanity worthy of a still sublimer peace in which, all internal dissensions having ceased, the whole effort of man may be united for the attainment of a more and more perfect and integral realisation of Thy divine Will and Thy progressive ideal. - The Mother

Along the Way…

February 2015 - A Walk to remember.

This first Sunday of February 2015 let all the members of Sri Aurobindo Society be informed of the Event mentioned below. Almost 60% of members got together at about 8.45AM at the location of Big Splash-East Coast beach, B-5 Barbecue pit area. It was really a pleasant site for an outing and encouraged everyone with a sense of the windy morning to go for light exercises and walk. Activities started with a Prayer to Sri Aurobindo and the Mother and of course with a group photograph. All members have undergone few exercises standing in a circle on soft sands of the beach. After a little warm-up exercises, all were ready for the walk. Some were on Roller Skates. All started walking in few groups on the pavements of the beach for about an hour. All were advised to assemble at same place, where from all started.

Mr Kalu Sarkar from Pondicherry joined this walk. He gave the concept of decay in the muscles, tissues, ligaments and cartilages of the body and then the replenishing process through some special postures supported by breathing on our request. He voluntarily agreed to give us some of exercises, benefiting many of us. This session started at 10am and ended at 10.30am. At 10.30 am, we all walked to the host’s, Nisha Maheshwari’s home and after 15 minutes of walk, we entered their Flat on 12th Floor.

We started with meditation music. Five members read five prayers from The Mother’s Prayers and Meditations. Following prayers and wishes for those celebrating their birthdays in the month of March and some announcements, brunch was served by our gracious hostess. All relished the food so lovingly served. It was a complete lunch full of South and North Indian Dishes with a finishing touch of various beverages and sweet-dishes.

We all enjoyed each other’s company in the midst of an atmosphere full of The Mother’s blessings. We dispersed at about 12pm. In all, it was an excellent Event.
