Guiding Light of The Month

Like a flame that burns in silence, like a perfume that rises straight upward without wavering, my love goes to Thee; and like the child who does not reason and has no care, I trust myself to Thee that Thy Will may be done, that Thy Light may manifest, Thy Peace radiate, Thy Love cover the world. - 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”.
