At the Feet of The Mother

March 1, 1914 (PM 029)

This prayer is about the source of our difficulties and outer circumstances.

March 1, 1914

IT is in oneself that there are all the obstacles, it is in oneself that there are all the difficulties, it is in oneself that there is all the darkness and ignorance. Even if we were to travel across the whole earth, bury ourselves in some solitary place, break with all our habits, lead the most ascetic life, still if some bond of illusion held back the consciousness far from Thy absolute consciousness, if some egoistic attachment deprived us of the integral communion with Thy divine Love, we should be no nearer to Thee, whatever might be the outer circumstances. Are there even circumstances more or less favourable? I doubt it; it is the idea we form of them which enables us to profit better or worse by the lessons they give us.

O Lord, I implore Thee! Grant that I may be perfectly conscious and master of the aggregate which constitutes this personality, so that I may be delivered from myself and that Thou alone mayst live and act through these multiple elements.

To live in Love, by Love, for Love, indissolubly united to Thy highest manifestation….

Ever more of light, more of beauty, more of truth!


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

When I ask you to be plastic in relation to the Divine, I mean not to resist the Divine with the rigidity of preconceived ideas and fixed principles.
