At the Feet of The Mother

June 18, 1913 (008)

This prayer of the Mother reveals to us the real cause of suffering and its radical remedy. Reflections by Dr Alok Pandey.


June 18, 1913*

To turn towards Thee, unite with Thee, live in Thee and for Thee, is supreme happiness, unmixed joy, immutable peace; it is to breathe infinity, to soar in eternity, no longer feel one’s limits, escape from time and space. Why do men flee from these boons as though they feared them? What a strange thing is ignorance, that source of all suffering! How miserable that obscurity which keeps men away from the very thing which would bring them happiness and subjects them to this painful school of ordinary existence fashioned entirely from struggle and suffering!
