Guiding Light of The Month

O Lord, how ardently do I call and implore Thy love! Grant that my aspiration may be intense enough to awaken the same aspiration everywhere: oh, may good- ness, justice and peace reign as supreme masters, may ignorant egoism be overcome, darkness be suddenly illu- minated by Thy pure Light; may the blind see, the deaf hear, may Thy law be proclaimed in every place and, in a constantly progressive union, in an ever more perfect harmony, may all, like one single being, stretch out their arms towards Thee to identify themselves with Thee and manifest Thee upon earth. - The Mother

April-May Sunday Activities at the Centre - A glimpse

April 22nd – Self-Dynamising Meditation using Savitri and Huta Paintings
After the last month’s overall view of all the Cantos of Book 3 (‘The Book of the Divine Mother’), we took a deep dive – first in ‘The Pursuit of the unknowable’ and next the pursuit for the symbol OM. Ashwapathy’s darshan of ‘The God Head of the Whole’ after entering through the space between the slayer and saviour fires endows him with the apprehending consciousness of the Supermind but still misses its fully comprehending consciousness – the hidden all-encompassing voice that chants to the creator fire, the symbolled OM, the great assenting Word. We continued our attempt to weave using the threads of the last ten months of glimpses into a Spiritual fabric. This Book provided us the perfect framework for aligning with the Future Poetry Jared is navigating us through. Here we can discover the essence and secret of the whole creation of which poetry is just a part.

May 6th and 13th – The Future Poetry
Jared navigated us through the key points of Chapter VI: The National Evolution of Poetry and Chapter VII: The Character of English Poetry I. Greek poetry was singled out for its powerful influence through its perfection while taking life from a whole large view-point. It worked always from the inspired reason, used a luminous intellectual observation and harmonized all it did by the rule of an enlightened and chastened aesthetic sense. Jared also highlighted some passages from Sri Aurobindo’s Illion. This is set in quantitative hexameter which He had admired - the chosen vehicle of Homer, Virgil and other great Greek and Latin poets. We also discussed about the influence of the national soul on the poetry and the other artistic expressions.
