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

December - January Sunday Activities at the Centre – A glimpse

December 20th and 27thMeditations on Savitri and Savitri reading circle:

In our final two sessions of the year, we reached the last canto of Savitri: “The Return to Earth”. On earth, though from heaven, Savitri began her life. Now returned to earth, after wrestling with Death and God in Night and supernal Day, Savitri stands before Satyavan, and the whole earth, as the embodiment of supramental Grace and Life:

“A power dwelt in her soul too great for earth,
A bliss lived in her heart too large for heaven;
Light too intense for thought and love too boundless”

Yet the mystery of human love is not cancelled but fulfilled by their ordeal. Still is she Savitri, the sweet Madran, and the wife of Satyavan, her beloved:

“Our love has grown greater by that mighty touch
And learned its heavenly significance,
Yet nothing is lost of mortal love's delight.”

Hand in hand, they walked. And from far off came the cry of the human world: For Savitri had won many boons from Death, not least the restoration of Dyumatsena’s sight and kingship. Savitri and Satyavan rejoined the kingly party, opening up a new chapter on earth just as one has already opened up in heaven.  In her, a priest and sage saw the embodiment of a ‘greater dawn’ but she herself simply answered:
“Awakened to the meaning of my heart
That to feel love and oneness is to live
And this the magic of our golden change,
Is all the truth I know or seek, O sage.”

Thus, the final word, and perhaps the first, is Love.

We meditated on this canto through listening to the Mother’s readings, full of the power of her voice. We concentrated on Huta’s paintings and we read the mantric verses. Each time we read Savitri, the Truth grows in us, bringing understanding, peace and every blessing. 

January 3rd - Readings from AIM Magazine The Mother’s Yoga:

In this session we delved into the incredible details of the Mother’s Yoga after the supramental descent in 1956. We read various passages detailing the yoga the Mother was performing for the earth – opening her body and being up totally – as a representative and example for all of us - to the Supreme. 

We also read about the descent of the Overman consciousness in 1969 – which has brought powerful new possibilities to humanity, and further accelerated the spiritual evolution of the earth.
