The Ashram the World and Individual m

“The Ashram, the World and the Individual” – Nolini Kanta Gupta

“…the pressure from above has come to change things and for that purpose all the dark points, all that has to be changed and rejected, have been exposed. They have been exposed everywhere — in the Ashram and also outside the Ashram, in the country in general — the same defects and weaknesses, the same wrong movements.”

“The Ashram: Inner and Outer” – Nolini Kanta Gupta

“… this ashram that I saw was in fact the inner reality of our ashram here, the inner ashram which is within us all; what we see at present is the outer form, the material form, which is a good deal deformed and even falsified in many ways. … Now our task is to come more and more in contact with that reality even in our waking moments, to be conscious of that which is nothing but the Mother’s Presence. “

A review of our Ashram Life

“A Review of Our Ashram Life” – Nolini Kanta Gupta

“Consciousness […] has to come down and break the hard block of inert matter, striking and scattering and throwing up, as it were, its myriad disparate bits, turning them into particles of Light and Consciousness. These free sparks at the outset become erratic, errant conscious units, free but fighting against each other […] but that is the way towards a purer, higher, wider, integrating consciousness. We are thus in a transition period; it is an interregnum, beset with great difficulties, but they are also great opportunities.”

“I bow to the Mother” – Nolini Kanta Gupta talk transcript

“Not only has She been concerned with human beings, but the animal creation and the life of plants too have shared in her direct touch. The Veda speaks of the animal sacrifice, but the Mother has performed her consecration of animals in a very novel sense […] She took a few cats as representatives of the animal world.”

The Ideal Centre – a talk by Nolini Kanta Gupta

“Work done as prayer is the best means of effecting an ascent in consciousness […] Work is not meant to show or express one’s capacity or skillfulness or cleverness, nor is it a mere mechanical execution of outward acts performing certain duties. It is indeed a ritual of prayer and self-dedication, adhesion and surrender of the most dynamic and material parts of our being […] to the One Divine Will.”
