Experience and the Experiencing Consciousness

“… when the Avatara and the Divine Mother take upon themselves the role of a Teacher, then there are no limits to the possibilities, no fixed term to our growth and progress, no hedges that constrain our experience. She lowers Herself to our puny heights and carries us in Her arms of Love and Light towards the boundless beatitudes that await our discovery. The limits of religions and ideologies, systems and theories, cults and creeds that tie us forever down simply vanish before the growing Light.”

On Birth and Birthdays, – A moment of the Eternal in Time

“[birthday] is our moment with the Divine, when we are once again face to face with the Creator who pours into the human vessel to carry us further in the line of evolution we have chosen. This is the first gift with which we are all born and each birthday is a renewal of this gift.”

Love the Mother

Love The Mother

‘Love the Mother’, these three words summarise in a way the key to Integral Yoga. It is the base of all our efforts towards self-perfection, the sustaining force through all the trials and tribulations of sadhana, as also, the grand culmination and the crowning movement.

“The Ever-Living Presence” – The Unfailing Help (conclusion)

“The inner fruit of the Avatar’s coming is gained by those who learn from it the true nature of the divine birth and the divine works and who, growing full of him in their consciousness and taking refuge in him with their whole being […] in whatever way men accept, love and take joy in God, in that way God accepts, loves and takes joy in man. ” [Sri Aurobindo CWSA 19:176]

“The Ever-Living Presence” Part 09. The Work Before us: Are we Ready?

“Nothing can replace that touch-divine and the thrill of contact in the very physical. However, the yoga in itself does not depend upon that. Krishna’s departure from Vrindavan released the streams of devotion in the human consciousness.

“The Ever-Living Presence” Part 08 Towards the New Body (2)

“I spent a good part of the night (almost the whole night till 3 in the morning) with Sri Aurobindo, and he not only showed me and explained to me, but he himself was what he was showing me: he was preparing himself for the new creation. And last night he told me, he showed me how this or that thing would be, how the body would be. ” The Mother.
