Today, November 17, is the day of the passing of The Mother.
On this day in 1973, the physical embodiment of The Mother came to an end.
But as she told Nolini Kanta Gupta, the secretary of the ashram, ‘‘If I ever leave my body, my consciousness will remain with you’’.
As I have discovered in my simple life, She continues to bless and guide me. Her frame may be absent, but her divine voice can be heard distinctly.
The Mother remains in ‘‘close contact with the earth atmosphere from the other side in a supramental body in the subtle-physical world’’.
As Sri Aurobindo envisioned in his Savitri, We see her thus –
She heard around her nameless voices cry
Triumphing, an innumerable sound.
A choir of rushing winds to meet her came.
She bore the burden of Infinity
