The Mother and Sri Aurobindo

Thought for the day  Control over what one says is more important than complete silence
All who enter the spiritual path have to face the difficulties and ordeals of the path, those which rise from their own nature and those which come in from outside.
Sri Aurobindo
(Letters on Yoga,Vol:24, Page: 1615,SABCL)

Weekly Guidance from Sri Aurobindo and Mother

"The ascent to the divine Life is the human journey, the Work of works, the acceptable Sacrifice. This alone is man's real business in the world and the justification of his existence, without which he would be only an insect crawling among other ephemeral insects on a speck of surface mud and water which has managed to form itself amid the appalling immensities of the physical universe."

-Sri Aurobindo
(The Life Divine)

I believe I have already said often enough and repeated that in the physical world, of all things it is beauty which best expresses the Divine. The physical world is the world of form, and the perfection of form is beauty.

-The Mother
(1 June 1955)
