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


Supreme Artisan and Fashioner of perfection,
Atom by atom she builds up the world- she is slow, patient, faultless.
And by her consummate craftsmanship the universe- and each object
In the universe-
Is a marvel of pattern, a model of divine arabesque,
A carefully wrought jewel.
Hers is the keen eye, hers the deft finger, the sure handling
And they compel intractable Matter
To bend and bow down to her as to its sovereign Mistress.
She is the growing divinity within us that like inevitable fate
Is slowly taking possession of our human life,

She is moulding it as she wills it to be-
A vessel and an instrument - a visible embodiment
Of the Consciousness, the Power, the Bliss
Of the Divine Mother.
