Sādhanā: “Peace, Peace Upon All the Earth”

Home » Sādhanā: “Peace, Peace Upon All the Earth”

Sri Aurobindo once said that for a true resurgence of Indian spirit, the recovery of the old spiritual knowledge and experience in all its splendour, depth and fullness is our first, most essential work. This recovery is not to be confined to intellectual or mental sphere. It must become a living force guiding all aspects of our life.

The Mother reminds us there are no two separate lives – spiritual life and ordinary life. Thus all life and works are to be taken up in the spirit of sādhanā.

This has been the eternal and inmost significance of Indian spirituality since millennia. And this has to become once again the main inspiring motive-power for a new India – new because it is a rebirth of the timeless Indian spirit.

Outer work has true meaning only when it becomes a means to progress inwardly in our consciousness, when it is done as sādhanā, as an offering to the Divine.

For our Sādhanā series this month, we highlight a prayer from the Mother’s Prayers and Meditations, which inspires us to pray for the transformation of the ordinary consciousness into the supreme consciousness for peace to descend upon all earth.

Read another Prayer for a generous heart:
Sādhanā: To Give Oneself to Thee in Equanimity

Peace, peace upon all the earth!

May all escape from the ordinary consciousness and be delivered from the attachment for material things; may they awake to the knowledge of Thy divine presence, unite themselves with Thy supreme consciousness and taste the plenitude of peace that springs from it.

Lord, Thou art the sovereign Master of our being. Thy law is our law, and with all our strength we aspire to identify our consciousness with Thy eternal consciousness, that we may accomplish Thy sublime work in each thing and at every moment.

Lord, deliver us from all care for contingencies, deliver us from the ordinary outlook on things. Grant that we may henceforth see only with Thy eyes and act only by Thy will. Transform us into living torches of Thy divine love.

With reverence, with devotion, in a joyful consecration of my whole being I give myself, O Lord, to the fulfilment of Thy law.

Peace, peace upon all the earth!

~ The Mother (CWM, 1: 74)
