Mira continues father's legacy in woodwork, and is also one of the funders of Peace Foundation.

Peace in Cacophony

Brainfever wakes us up in the middle of the night, peacocks cries ... and when the morning comes seven sisters blabber at all times ... Due to lush vegetation and ever green dry forests which surround Auroville, daily soundscapes is the one of birds .... what emerge out of it where are we going what are we striving for and lotus pond sings its song with cascading water ...

The Origin of Creation

On the night of April 13 1962, Mother woke up suddenly with the full awareness of the Yoga of the world. Mother was the Origin. Fully conscious on her bed, she was great gusts of the essence of Love. There was only the truth of the universe. Mother describes her experience in the recording made the next day. We have the rare opportunity to hear her give this experience in English. She started speaking in French only when she began to speak of the works she had to do. The profound depth of her {experience} is very clear in her voice and in ...

... in the way she speaks. In the course of two more conversations Mother explains this experience in detail. She also imparts a deep understanding of the vast concept of the Avatar, and of Sri Aurobindo the Avatar. Much later, on December 21, 1963, Mother explains how gratitude is only a very slightly coloured hue of the essential vibration of Love. Still later, on July 12, 1967, Mother speaks of the Pulsation of Love that she experienced on April 13 1962 as the true healing power.

Auroville Future Learning To Be 2

The second part of our live recording broadcast from Sawchu, brought a lot of memories and emotions you can now listen to. Auroville is a great push toward human future, but while living there, one is surrounded and questioned by the mirrors created by his own Aurovilian's fellows. It also a place where best enemies have to kiss and opposite have to meet. But lets remember that all Aurovilians have not yet arrive in the city, future is hope. We all experienced the up and down and the difficulties of living in the city of truth.

The New Being

On January 1, 1969, starting just after midnight, Mother felt an immense personality, something very material and luminous. It was very powerful but its character was a smiling benevolence, a peaceful joy and a blossoming in the joy and the light. It came directly into Mother's body and gave the feeling of something that had come to stay. Mother wondered if it was the personality which would later manifest in supramental forms of if it would manifest in the body of the intermediary being, the {superman}. After that , Mother's body no longer...

had any uncertainty or anxiety to know what the supramental would be physically like. Later Mother had the assurance that this consciousness would manifest earlier that the supramental form, It was there now to go into the body of the superman, the intermediary being. AS time went on, Mother received important lessons from this being, She found that there was also very pronounced change in the people been touched on January first. Mother saw that this new being/ consciousness had a wide action and was working all over the world, changing things. With this new consciousness, Mother had major realizations. She said that this manifestation was the strongest experience She ever had. With this new consciousness established in Her, Mother saw that the Psychic Being would become the Supramental Being. Later, briefly, She had Her own new body. And on November 8, 1972, for the first time, Mother had the Supramental Consciousness.
