The Divine Mother comes as Savitri to take up her divine unfinished task.

Mother's Q and A – 29/8/56

How To Be Really Spontaneous

Mother defines spontaneity and goes into detail about how to be truly spontaneous. Then she explains how Sri Aurobindo wrote the Arya in a state of complete mental spontaneity. She says that to do yoga we must not be influenced by our own imaginations or desires, or we will end up having pre-imagined spiritual experiences instead of true ones. The practice of strict mental spontaneity is particularly necessary to follow a mental discipline.

Earth Awaits the Birth Of The Flame Through The Changing Seasons

Amid the ambiguous stillness of the stars, Earth followed the endless journey of the sun. The symbol pageant of the changing seasons became a vigil, waiting for some mighty birth to come. An identity and an ecstasy filled meditation’s solitary heart. A dream loitered in the dumb mind of Space. An inmost thought kindled a hidden flame. An inner sight adored an unseen sun. Soon the Flame that is the Divine Mother will descend into a human body to change the fate of earth and man. The sunlight was a great god’s golden smile. All Nature was at beauty’s festival awaiting the birth of Savitri.

Is The Divine Grace All-Powerful ?

This week, in the second half of Mother’s class she says it is no coincidence that India achieved her Independence on Sri Aurobindo’s birthday.
