As part of the Sunday webinar series titled ‘What is New in Sri Aurobindo’ from January 22, 2023 – March 19, 2023, Dr. Beloo Mehra, Editor of Renaissance, facilitated several webinar sessions. On February 19, 2023, the theme of her session was – ‘The Mother’s Arrival and the New Consciousness’. Given the mixed nature of the group — which included several who are relatively new to the work and vision of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother, Dr. Mehra organised her presentation in an appropriate manner. The focus of her presentation was to highlight the immense yogic work of the Mother in bringing down the Supramental Consciousness.
