Guiding Light of The Month

To Thee, supreme Dispenser of all boons, to Thee who givest life its justification, by making it pure, beautiful and good, to Thee, Master of our destinies and goal of all our aspirations, was consecrated the first minute of this new year. - The Mother

Mahalakshmi



Mother of Delight
Of Love that moves the sun and stars!
She is the Rapture that quickens our inmost heart,
She is Beauty’s self that enthrals our earthly senses;
In her is the whole meaning of existence.

She has come down close and intimate to a humanity avid of joy;
She casts her noose of charm and captures us even by our weakness;
Her radiant smile transfigures a whole world of gloom and pain

Into an Abode of Bliss-
And we know not when have we transcended our human frailities
In our eagerness to contemplate her gracious form,
To kiss those glorious feet of hers
That trail the Dawn!
Hasten to welcome her, O heart, hasten!
Lest she turn away-
For she will not force herself,
Our adorable and shy Mother!
