The Mother and Sri Aurobindo

Messages from Sri Aurobindo and The Mother
The acceptance of poverty is noble & beneficial in a class or an individual, but it becomes fatal and pauperises life of its richness & expansion if it is perverted into a general or national ideal. Athens, not Sparta, is the progressive type for mankind. Ancient India with its ideal of vast riches & vast spending was the greatest of nations; modern India with its trend towards national asceticism has finally become poor in life & sunk into weakness & degradation.

Weekly Guidance from Sri Aurobindo and Mother

"By remaining psychically open to the Mother, all that is necessary for work or Sadhana develops progressively, that is one of the chief secrets, the central secret of the Sadhana. But it is not by upadeśa that this Sadhana is given or carried on. It is only those who are capable by aspiration and meditation on the Mother to open and receive her action and working within this Yoga."

-Sri Aurobindo-

"As for true love, it is the Divine Force that allows consciousnesses to unite themselves with the Divine."

-The Mother-
