Guiding Light of The Month

OH, let Light be poured on all the earth and Peace inhabit every heart. . . Almost all know only the material life heavy, inert, conservative, obscure; their vital forces are so tied to this physical form of existence that, even when left to themselves and outside the body, they are still solely occupied with these material contingencies that are yet so harassing and painful. . . - The Mother

March Sunday Activities at the Centre – A glimpse

March 1st- Readings from the Bases of Yoga

This book is a compilation of Sri Aurobindo’s answers to queries of his disciples to enable understanding and practice of the yoga. This passage is about our dreams of various hues and colours. Sri Aurobindo says our dreams can arise from any of the planes like vital, mental, even from non- human forces or beings from other planes. Dreams can be symbolic and some that indicate existing movements and propensities in us. If we are observant and could interpret them correctly we can get rid of the many unwanted stuff which will hinder our journey to a higher consciousness.

March 8th- Readings from The Synthesis of Yoga

In this book the Mother answers to the questions of the disciples to give them a clear understanding of Sri Aurobindo’s  The Synthesis of Yoga, ”The Four Aids”. This question is about what is the meaning of the period of divine movement in the instrumentality of Time (Kala) which has the cycle of their action and a period of the divine movement?

Sri Aurobindo and the Mother have introduced us to the deeper meaning of Time like the previous thought on Dreams. Generally our awareness of time does not go beyond our routine activities. The Mother has explained that like the seasons of the year which has a rhythm, so too in our life, Time has a rhythm or pattern of thoughts, actions and  reactions, inspiration and understanding unique to each individual. If we are attentive we can break the rhythm to progress for betterment, though the rhythm in our various planes is criss-crossing and complicated.
