We celebrate the Mother’s birthday and the anniversary of the Golden Day with a special issue on the theme – The Mother’s Grace.
In this conversation with a disciple, dated 2 May 1956, the Mother explains clearly what it takes to perceive the working of a new consciousness in the earth-atmosphere. She reminds that if want the new supramental consciousness to transform us, we must open ourselves and make an effort to progress.
Read a few selections from Champaklal’s book Prarthana ane Udgaro, translated into English from Gujarati under the title Prayers and Aspirations by Sudha and Don Fisher. A biographical note about the author is also included.
In our Book of the Month feature, we highlight some precious reminiscences of K. D. Sethna (Amal Kiran). They speak the working of the Mother’s Grace. The precise reason for featuring these extracts in the current issue has to do with the connection to the Supramental Manifestation of 29 February 1956.
This poem reminds us powerfully of the truth that all is indeed possible with the Grace of the Mother.
In this extract translated from original Bengali, Rabindranath Tagore speaks of how his mother’s love made him aware of the Divine Grace in his life.
In continuation of the first two parts of this essay published in the last issue, read here about some of the deep symbolism found in Sri Aurobindo’s Savitri.
Satyavan symbolizes the aspiring human spirit caught in the mesh of ignorance and death. Savitri is the Divine’s Grace, the Divine’s love which has come down.
