At the Feet of The Mother

Selections

from writings of Sri Aurobindo and The Mother

 

We have limbs and muscles and nerves, indeed everything that constitutes the body; if we don't give them a special development, a special education, all these things do what they can to express the Power in the body, but it is a very clumsy and very incomplete expression.
TEXT IN ENGLISH
Nothing great is ever accomplished without endurance. If you study the lives of great men you will see how they set themselves like flint against the weaknesses of the vital.
TEXT IN ENGLISH
The first group of selections from the Mother's and Sri Aurobindo's writings. Offered by Sri Aurobindo Center of Los Angeles.
The Mother's words (TEXT)
O divine law of beauty and love, supreme liberator, there is no obstacle to Thy power. Only our own blindness deprives us of the comforting sight of Thy constant victory.
The Mother's words (TEXT)
Give them all, O Lord, Thy peace and light, open their blinded eyes and their darkened understanding; calm their futile worries and their vain anxieties.

"The particular things seen may be of no importance, but the power of seeing is of importance and can be of great help in the Yoga. It enables you to see things belonging to other planes (other than the physical) and get knowledge that is useful for sadhana; also to have concrete contact with the Mother in those planes (mental, vital, psychic worlds) etc."
