Guiding Light of The Month

WHY all this noise, all this movement, this vain and futile agitation; why this whirlwind carrying men away like a swarm of flies caught in a storm? How sad is the sight of all that wasted energy, all those useless efforts! When will they stop dancing like puppets on a string, pulled they know not by whom or what? When will they find time to sit quietly and go within, to recollect themselves and open that inner door which screens from them Thy priceless treasures, Thy infinite boons? - The Mother

Flowers Speak…




Vital aspiration for the union with the Divine

It raises straight up in an intense and concentrated movement

All-love was hers and its one heavenly cord
Bound all to all with her as golden tie.

Savitri

Is it not a supreme sacrifice for the Divine to renounce the beatitude of His unity in order to create the painful multiplicity of the world?

Thus in the silent chamber of her soul
Cloistering her love to live with secret grief
She dwelt like a dumb priest with hidden gods
Unappeased by the wordless offering of her days,
Lifting to them her sorrow like frankincense,
Her life the altar, herself the sacrifice.
Savitri
