Richard Pearson, editor of the book “Flowers and their messages”, the first book published by the ashram on spiritual significance of flowers, speaks on this very subject. Recording of 1990.
This is an audio recording of the first of two talks on flowers, which were delivered at Savitri Bhavan in December 2006 and January 2007. An excerpt from interview with Richard by Anie Nunnally is also posted.

Sri Aurobindo has reportedly written that “There are three ways of blessing of the Mother: by sight, by touch and through flowers. And it is through flowers that Her blessings are most effective.”
“Thy golden Light came down into my feet;
My earth is now Thy playfield and Thy seat.”
“… we are turned towards that light, and we read Savitri with veneration and devotion, and it gives us a great deal. So we have some work to do, a whole programme to work out, and we all share in the promise of which this Book of Promise is full. And we know what to do for the rest of our lives. Happy travels!”
