Guiding Light of The Month

THERE is a great difference between being in the midst of active work, of external action, while keeping one’s thought constantly fixed on Thee, and entering into that perfect union with Thee which leads to what I have called “absolute Consciousness, true Omniscience, Knowledge”. - The Mother

On Music


Music brought down celestial yearnings, song
Held the merged heart absorbed in rapturous depths,
Linking the human with the cosmic cry;
(Savitri)


Mother Saraswati – Goddess of learning and music.

The world-interpreting movements of the dance
Moulded idea and mood to a rhythmic sway
And posture; crafts minute in subtle lines
Eternised a swift moment’
s memory
Or showed in a carving’
s sweep, a cups design
The underlying patterns of the unseen:
Poems in largeness cast like moving worlds
And metres surging with the ocean’
s voice
(Savitri)
