Michel Danino on History

This morning we were graced by the visit of Michel Danino, who actually has started his life in India in 1977 in Auroville, where he was active with writing, and translating of Sri Aurobindo and The Mother.
In short interview we talked about his very active life , and projects he is passionate about. And indeed the passion of history of ancient civilization might have lead him to come to India in the first place.
Today he will share with the community at Pavilion of Tibetan Culture in International Zone a lecture -“Can Ancient India Help Today’s India”.

Mother's Q&A – 18/7/56, Part 1

Mother’s Questions And Answers, 18 July, 1956, Part 1

Mother says Krishna, the the Divine flute player, is the supreme power of attraction of the immanent and universal Divine, who is all beauty, and Radha, who responds to the call of the Flute player is our individual soul, our psychic being. She explains that when we are fully responsive to the Divine we are in a state of consciousness which is a protection and a help. She explains why the Supreme becomes the manifested universe.

Synthesis of Yoga

Chapter 4 Concentration continued to its completion; pages 321 – 325, of Part II, The Yoga of Integral Knowledge.

Sri Aurobindo explains: ” ….. concentraiton proceeds by the Idea, using thought, form and name as keys which yield up to the concentrating mind the Truth that lies concealed behind all thought, form and name ….. “

” ….. the mind is a thing that dwells in diffusion ….. it can only concentrate on one thing at a time and when not concentrated runs from one thing to another very much at random.”

” ….. The first step in concentration must be always to accustom the discursive mind to a settled unwavering pursuit ….. on a single subject ….. undistracted by all lures and alien calls on its attention ….. common enough in our ordinary life ….. difficult when we have to do it inwardly ….. this inward concentration is what the seeker of knowledge must effect.”
