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

Gratitude Prayer

To Thee who hast been the material envelope of our master,
To thee our infinite gratitude, before thee who hast done so much for us,
Who hast worked, struggled, suffered, hoped, endured so much,
Before thee who hast willed all, attempted all, prepared, achieved all for us,
Before thee we bow down and implore that we may never forget even for a moment,
All we owe to thee.
-       The Mother (December 9, 1950)

(Prayer inscribed on the Samadhi at Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Pondicherry)
