The Womb Obscure, pp. 204-208 (SH 107)

A charm and sweetness sudden and formidable,
Faces that raised alluring lips and eyes
Approached him armed with beauty like a snare,
But hid a fatal meaning in each line
And could in a moment dangerously change.

The Divine Beyond All Conceptions (HH 084)

All genuine yogic experience affirms that the Divine Consciousness or the Divine state of Being is beyond the dualities such as those of good and evil, virtue and vice, pleasure and pain. But then man in his early approaches towards the divinity he seeks must necessarily pass through this duality. As experience dawns one upon another he draws closer to this great Realisation that the Divine is everything.

Mental Resistance to Change (HH 083)

Each plane and part of the being offers its own resistances as we move through the vast and complex journey of the Integral Yoga. Matter responds with dullness and inertia, obscurity and tamas while the vital with impatience and restless impulsiveness. The mind too offers its own resistance to the transforming action of the Grace.  In this talk we discuss a form of resistance offered by the mental instrument.

The Greatest Obstacle (HH 081)

One of the questions that arises in the mind of a sceptic is that if God is the sole Reality then what really prevents us from knowing that That Reality as naturally as we breathe or think or feel. The seeker confronts it in a different way. This talk is based on this idea of the difficulty of material transformation developing on two talks of the Mother separated by nearly 52 years.

The Cry of Life, pp. 198-201 (SH 105)

There is no end of seeking and of birth,
There is no end of dying and return;
The life that wins its aim asks greater aims,
The life that fails and dies must live again;
Till it has found itself it cannot cease.

Satyameva Jayate – Truth Triumphs (HH 078)

Is it always Truth that wins? It is an evolving world and therefore Truth itself wears an evolutionary aspect and its emergence appears a struggle of conflicting forces. These are some of the issues being discussed in this talk.

The Anthem Swell of Life, pp. 194-196 (SH 104)

Even grief has joy hidden beneath its roots:
For nothing is truly vain the One has made:
In our defeated hearts God’s strength survives
And victory’s star still lights our desperate road;
Our death is made a passage to new worlds.

An Integral Approach to the Integral Yoga (HH 077)

A misconception exists on the role of prayers, worship and certain forms of external expressions usually associated with the ritualistic aspects of religion. From a spiritual point of view the attitude is more important than the external action. At the same time there is also a need for the outer and external being to participate in the movement of Yoga. This need arises not only a symbol but even more so for the completeness of our total self-giving to the Divine. The following talk deals with this issue.

There Matter is soul’s result and not its cause.

On inner values hangs the outer plan.
