At the Feet of The Mother

February 9 & 10, 1914 (PM 026)

These two prayers show us the truth of the Divine Presence everywhere.

February 9, 1914
WHATEVER may be the names they give Thee, O Lord, the elite of humanity athirst for an absolute, ardently seek Thee. Even those who seem to move farthest away from Thee, even those who are solely occupied with themselves, are they not seeking an absolute in sensation, an absolute of satisfaction, and in spite of its vanity, that seeking also can one day lead towards Thee; Thou art too much in the centre, in the heart of everything for even the worst egoisms themselves not to be transformed by Thee into aspirations… The only thing which must be feared and shunned is the inertia of inconscience, of blind and heavy ignorance. That state is quite at the nethermost of the infinite ladder which leads to Thee. And all Thy effort consists in drawing the substance from this first obscurity so as to make it be born into consciousness. Passion itself is preferable to inconscience. We must therefore constantly march to the conquest of this universal bedrock of inconscience and making our organism the instrument, transform it little by little into luminous consciousness.

Oh! Lord, sweet Master of love. Thou whom I see so living, so conscious in all, I adore Thee with a limitless devotion.”

February 10, 1914
WITH peace in the heart and light in the mind, we feel Thee, O Lord, so living in us that we await events with serenity, knowing that Thy way is everywhere since we carry it in our being, and that in all circumstances we can be heralds of Thy word and servant of Thy work.

With a calm and pure devotion we salute Thee and we recognise Thee as the only reality of our being. “


The text above is quoted from the Third Edition, 1954 (translation by Rishabhchand Samsukha)
