Increase my fires and aspiration, make the surrender in me possible at once and in every way; widen my openness and receptivity; remove the coverings that delay the workings of psyche deep within; take away, O Mother, from me what I have and what I have not…..
This ‘Hymn to the Mother of Radiances’ was written by Amrita in January 1927. Later, Amrita’s drafts were revised by Sri Aurobindo and arranged to make a three-part hymn. The revised version was also copied out in Sri Aurobindo’s own hand.
Among the many mysteries that we encounter in our journey of life, one of them indeed is Death. Fortunately for us we have the vast experience of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother who have left for us a wealth of deepest understanding about all things, including death. We share today some of the Mother’s discoveries and revelations on Death and Rebirth.
