“There are beings who take birth from time to time, who come down upon earth to complete some experience or realisation, and your mother is one of them. She lives there, above our earth, but very close to us, in the world of Gandharvas; these beings are blessed with exceptional qualities.” – The Mother
“His intense love for the Mother, in whom he saw the embodiment of his Motherland, and his sincerity and integrity made him Her worthy child. Of him the Mother once said, “Sudhir is my true Bhakta”. May his life inspire the youth of today. To remember him is to remember the idealism and spirit of sacrifice that once inspired a chosen few and through them electrified the multitudes of this country. To remember him is to remember the noble vision for which they lived and died, the vision of their Master, Sri Aurobindo.”
“Mother Divine, they say you are 125 years old, but you are at once ancient and young. You are the eternal and universal creatrix and cannot be placed within the narrow confines of age, personality, time, space, or nationality. You are all-wisdom, all-wideness, you are omniscient and omnipresent.”
There will be more detailed and personal recollections and eulogies, but we would like to use this opportunity to say at least a few words in tribute to this beautiful child of the Mother.
“Oh, how I wish I could bring all my relatives, my friends, nay, all the people of the earth and show them to my Mother; by Her magic touch She would change their heart’s understanding, give them peace and the sweet taste of happiness!”
The Relics symbolise the supramental-in-action. Being infinite in nature and timeless in their action, their Power manifests of itself and out of itself a new creation, a new earth and a new race. They embody a very special Grace sent to us, a Grace come to us. We only need to accept it with love and gratitude…
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.
“Sri Aurobindo’s voice was a beautiful, well modulated sound. Sri Aurobindo just sat there looking as though He were gazing out into eternity in His great lonely days of descent into mortal life in order to help humanity.”
“… 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.”
