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

May - June Sunday Activities at the Centre - A glimpse

May 20th – Savitri: The Glory and Fall of Life
Chhalamayi, with her extensive research and meditation, enthralled us with a beautifully woven snippets from Savitri, Book 2 focusing on Life and through that touching a deeper and a wider canvas. The central focus was on the Canto 3, ‘The Glory and Fall of Life’ – Aswapati’s Journey into the kingdom of Life. The Book 2 is about his journey into the various planes of Consciousness - of Subtle Matter, Life and Mind and last into the Spiritual Worlds.
May 27th – Self-Dynamising Meditation using Savitri and Huta Paintings
We continued with our deep dive on the Book 3, ‘The Book of the Divine Mother’, Canto 2, ‘The Adoration of the Divine Mother’. It was a Divine Delight experiencing momentarily ‘The Flame Discovery of God’ – though this discovery is explicitly touched upon in the Canto 3, as a prelude, we could feel the voice that chants to the creator fire. The flames of Divine Mother take on infinite forms to accomplish the eternal dynamic Divine Delight uniting behind The One. Through this canto, we too can get a glimpse of Aswapati’s Darshan of The Mother which is far and beyond Vishwaroopa Darshan of Krishna to Arjuna.

‘His spirit was caught in her intolerable flame.
Once seen, his heart acknowledged only her.’

June 10th – Poems and paintings of Niranjan Guha Roy
Jared navigated us through the selected poems and the corresponding paintings of Niranjan Guha Roy (1920 to 2005). Niranjan was a pilot in the Royal Air Force during the war and was an Ashramite from 1945 to 1984. We could feel the deep aspirations of Niranjan so vividly expressed through his poems and paintings. We briefly glimpsed at the Elan, The Shrine and The House of the Mother.
