The offered talk on Supramental Body gives a rare glimpse at Amal-da’s interpretation of this profound future development, which was predicted and described by Sri Aurobindo and The Mother, but is very difficult to grasp. The talk was recorded in 1971.
“…the transcendent and universal person of the Divine conforms itself to our individualised personality and accepts a personal relation with us …as our Master, Friend, Lover, Teacher, our Father and our Mother, our Playmate in the great world-game…”
Amal Kiran (K D Sethna), one of foremost disciples of Sri Aurobindo and The Mother, replies to questions and answers, as well as recites a fragment from Savitri. Recorded in 1971.
“…It is only divine Love which can bear the burden I have to bear, that all have to bear who have sacrificed everything else to the one aim of uplifting earth out of its darkness to the Divine” – from a letter of Sri Aurobindo, 1934
“… 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.”
Prof Ashok Aklujkar speaks on how the books written on history by K.D. Sethna—‘Ancient India in a New Light’ and ‘Problems of Ancient India’ gave a different chronology of ancient India with remarkable insights into the specific topic of the dating of the Ashokan edicts.
A fragment from interview, conducted by several Western seekers or journalists. No further details are available.
The creative Conscious Force of the Supreme is the Divine Mother in Her transcendent poise, Aditi, holding the Truths that have to be manifested out of the absolute Mystery. Through the transcendent Mother and by Her creativity the whole universe has taken birth.
An article by Amal Kiran, originally appeared in Mother India, November 1974.
November 24 is known as the Day of Victory, for, on it, Sri Aurobindo had the experience which promised complete fulfilment of his vision. It is significant that the last living darshan he granted was precisely on this day and in spite of grave obstacles. He declared through the occasion that his life was victorious, no matter what the appearance soon after.
Broad and bright as the sun the message for India is written in the twofold momentousness that marks August 15.
A Body of immortal knowledge and force and bliss — a visible and palpable divinity — must be assumed to be the objective of every activity of the Mother as of Sri Aurobindo, even though our mind may fumble and see nothing but a luminous haze.

An overview talk on the background and introduction to Savitri.
The Mother, by passing away as she did, accomplished the task set to her by Sri Aurobindo in 1950, and repeated in a new mode his own master-stroke of conquering all while appearing to perish utterly.
She has given up her present physical sheath in order somehow to bring closer, to concretise further, the secret Supramental form that she has spoken of as awaiting materialisation through the labour of her Aurobindonian Yoga.
A fresh turn of spiritual strategy was called for by the Supreme Will — the Will of the Mother’s own highest Self — and the Mother in her incarnate role responded.
Q: So many problems have been facing me of late. I wonder how they are to be solved happily.
Mother: “The only way to a true and lasting happiness is a complete and exclusive reliance on the Divine’s Grace.” (19-10-1941)
