In the wake of the Centenary of The Mother’s first arrival in Pondicherry, The Ashram Music Group presented Matrivandana, a musical adoration of the Mother Goddess. On October 19, 2013, the group performed songs in Indian languages including Bengali and Oriya. It was a graceful evening filled with sublime devotional music. The divinity in the air was clearly perceivable as the Ashram Group singers let flow their love and adoration for The Mother Divine through their soulful rendition of the songs.
The Adoration of the Divine Mother wiII Bring into life’s closed room the Immortal’s air And fill the finite with the Infinite. All that denies must be torn out and slain And crushed the many longings for whose sake We lose the One for whom our lives were made. Now other claims had hushed in him their cry: Only he longed to draw her presence and power Into his heart and mind and breathing frame; Only he yearned to call for ever down Her healing touch of love and truth and joy Into the darkness of the suffering world. His soul was freed and given to her alone. – Sri Aurobindo
