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

Birth of New Light

(Picture of Dawn – Sandhya)


Like a fire from cave depths
Like a chant of hymn from silence’ self
Like a living symbol from ocean-ness
Awakes the Dawn from Nature’s bosom.

She leans Her hands of blessing
As fresh pink hues on blue sky
Secretly knocks the petals opening
On the flame-flowers of ecstasy.

A welcome song for the day is Dawn,
A miracle birth of light in morn.
-          Sandhya

Dr. Prema Nandakumar, in her PhD thesis titled “Sri Aurobindo’s Savitri, A study of the cosmic epic”, gives a beautiful account of how Dawn is picturized in Savitri. She says:

“This sublime picture of Dawn is verily infused with the symbolism of growth in consciousness: that is, Woman inconscient waking up from her stupor and becoming slowly transformed into the superconscient goddess”.
