“Significance of the Relics” by Madhav P. Pandit

The special atmosphere created by the Relics must be tended, preserved by the devotees… It is vibrant focus of a special spiritual Force that has been brought down from the world of Light on Earth to guide and lead its Journey to the Sun of Truth.

Pilgrim of the Supermind – Tributes to Nolini-da. Part 3 by Arabinda Basu

“Nolini Kanta is a name to reckon with in the history of man’s spiritual evolution. In spite of being an amazingly versatile talent bordering on genius, he was first and foremost a seeker of the spiritual life. Under the luminous and effective guidance of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother he blossomed into a yogi of high stature and all-round spiritual growth. “

Pilgrim of the Supermind – Tributes to Nolini-da. Part 2 by Amal Kiran

“… none can serve as a third Guru in the domain of so rare a reach of Divine Consciousness. Neither did Nolini ever claim to be such. But nobody deserved as richly as he to be a potent helper on the way… He has also figured admirably as a guardian of the Ashram by his wide reputation for deep mystical experience and a many-sided wisdom.”

“From the beginning of November 1926 the pressure of the Higher Power began to be unbearable. Then at last the great day, the day for which the Mother had been waiting for so many long years, arrived on 24 November…..

The Mother’s Withdrawal – a Talk by M P Pandit

“… on the morning of 17th November at about nine o’clock, a particular friend of mine — he has certain grounding in occult experience, occult knowledge, and normally when we meet, we exchange notes — told me, “I have seen The Mother’s body of light.” I got interested. He said, “The new body is full of light but it is not yet dense enough to function in the earth conditions….. ” And he added, “Those who are capable of seeing the Mother’s halo, aura, they will be able to see that luminous body.”
