Death serves as a grim reminder of the imperfection and impermanence of life, so that we may realise our deficiencies and do not get locked forever in a fixed and rigid and ignorant mould. It is a movement forward, the last stage of our growth in a single lifetime, the transit from greater to lesser ignorance. As Ignorance vanishes, death too shall vanish, having served its purpose.

The French revolution marked an important step in the earth’s evolutionary history. Sri Aurobindo has written extensively about it and as it seems was very much behind this revolution. Today’s talk is dedicated to this momentous event.
“… the Mother has left with us not merely her consciousness but a conscious being, a part of her living personality in us; that is the divine legacy we enjoy. We must not simply be proud of it but try to prove ourselves worthy of it.”
“Today she is simply and wholly an embodiment of Divine Love. And this love is seen by us to be really the greatest power in creation. Where she is, where she moves, there radiate waves of love, waves of bliss.”
