Darshan Card - April 24, 2020

24th April is the day of the Mother’s final arrival at Pondicherry in 1920.  It is celebrated in the Ashram as a Darshan day. A card with a beautiful message.

(As the Mother approached Pondicherry) I was on the boat, at sea, not expecting anything . . . when all of a sudden, abruptly, about two nautical miles from Pondicherry, the quality, I may even say the physical quality of the atmosphere, of the air, changed so much that I knew we were entering the aura of Sri Aurobindo. It was a physical experience and I guarantee that whoever has a sufficiently awakened consciousness can feel the same thing.

The Mother

That she should come here and work with me for a common goal was, as it were, a divine dispensation... She has helped and is helping to give a concrete form to my yoga. This would not have been possible without her co-operation.

    One of the two great steps in this yoga is to take refuge in the Mother.

Sri Aurobindo
