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

Wisdom in the Physical Mind


A first step towards the Supramental manifestation upon earth.
-          The Mother

Leaving earth’s safety daring wings of Mind
Bore her above the trodden fields of thought
Crossing the mystic seas of the Beyond
To live on eagle heights near to the Sun.
There wisdom sits on her eternal throne.
-          Savitri

The Japanese have a picturesque way of expressing their idea of prudence.
They have in one of their temples an image of a meditating Buddha seated on a lotus-blossom. In front of him are three little monkeys, one with its hands over its eyes, another over its ears, and the third covering its mouth. What do these three monkeys signify? By its gesture the first one says:
“I do not see evil and folly.
The second one says:
“I do not hear them.
And the third:
“I do not speak them.
In the same way, the wise man is prudent in what he looks at, in what he listens to, and in what he says.
He considers the consequences, thinks of the morrow, and if he does not know his way, he asks.
