Mother's Questions & Answers

Mother’s Questions & Answers
July 20, 1955

This week Mother answers, among the questions put to her; questions on seeking after the impersonal, how to escape from other people’s influence, how to give oneself to the Divine and therefore to have the Divine give Himself to you, and what is the Impersonal Divine. When Mother speaks about the Impersonal Divine, she explains about the concept of Nirvana. An interesting coincidence is that the readings from Savitri, which will be broadcast around the same time as this broadcast, are from Book VII, The Book of Yoga, Canto VI, Nirvana and the Discovery of the All-negating Absolute. In the last two-thirds of this canto, which will each be broadcast in turn, Sri Aurobindo describes his own experience of Nirvana in detail.
After the English reading of the July 20, 1955 Questions and Answers, the original tape recording of Mother’s class in French will be played.

The Grace is equally for all. But each one receives it according to his sincerity. It does not depend on outward circumstances but on a sincere aspiration and openness. Words of The Mother, Vol. 14 **************************************************************************************** On 17th November 1973, the Mother left her body. She was ninety-five. Many among her children were deeply shaken for the time being. But they realise now that she is always present amidst them.**************Both at home and abroad, the devotees see the Mother in their dreams. They feel her presence, listen to her message and get inspiration and instruction in their work. They firmly believe that the Mother will return in a new form. Meanwhile her mission is getting quietly fulfilled more and more. When Sri Aurobindo left his body the Mother said, "Nothing has changed. All that Sri Aurobindo has said is true, time will prove it." On the Mother’s withdrawal, her children are carrying on her work repeating the same dictum "Nothing has changed." *************************************************************************************** On 17 November 1973, the Mother laid down her residual human body while she continued to exist forever in a body consisting of a supramental substance. The supramental substance as worked out by the Mother is a material substance – otherwise the earthly revolution would have no meaning – though it is composed of a substance more refined than the Matter known to us. Generally speaking, the Gross Matter of our Mother the Earth is still in the process of transformation. This process is now in an advanced stage thanks to the avataric Yoga of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother. When gross Matter will have become sufficiently subtle and receptive, i.e. transformed, the mature souls, ready and waiting in their soul-world, will descend and incarnate in it. The formation of their bodies will be moulded by the existence of the Mother’s supramental body, the prototype of the new species. -Georges Van Vrekhem: The Mother – The Story of Her Life

The musical event was hosted by Pavilion of Tibetan Culture, where its hall offered and intimate, yet very acoustic space for Victor’s vibrant and powerful voice, educated in classical opera singing.
