Ever wondered how it was be with The Mother, live in the ashram, under her watchful gaze and access to her unlimited supply of love and wisdom. As a rare treat, students from California Institute of Integral Studies got a chance to listen to the intimate sharing of Aster about her childhood in the ashram and with the mother. Aster is our connection to The Mother as she was brought up in the world practically holding The Mothers fingers. Daughter to great Psychologists parents, Mother had special plans for her and like a innocent child, all Aster had to do was believe and follow on Mothers chosen path for her. She shares great insights about the working and the atmosphere of the ashram, how the 1st school in the ashram started with 12 children and what was the premise of education in the ashram. It was truly a magical time and great beings came to pass from the ashram, living and learning with Sri Aurobindo and The mother. Aster does her best to summarize and relive memories which are most cherished and unique in nature. To live and grow up in The Mother’s grace, a boon offered to few in life.
