The Mother & Sri Aurobindo

The Mother joined Sri Aurobindo’s work in 1914, initiating the publication of the ARYA journal which became the landing ground of all of Sri Aurobindo’s major works. In 1920 she would return definitively by his side in Pondicherry, his spiritual partner in the journey of Consciousness and its realisation through life.
The Mother " Mirra Alfassa " & Sri Aurobindo
After Sri Aurobindo’s passing in 1950,  the Mother continued his work. She started Auroville in 1968 to fulfil Sri Aurobindo’s fifth dream of the evolution towards a perfect society and unity  through a change of Consciousness.
The Mother " Terrace Darshan "

"Even should a hostile force cling to its reign And claim its right’s perpetual sovereignty And man refuse his high spiritual fate, Yet shall the secret Truth in things prevail. For in the march of all-fulfilling Time The hour must come of the Transcendent’s will… But first high Truth must set her feet on earth And man aspire to the Eternal’s light And all his members feel the Spirit’s touch And all his life obey an inner Force. This too shall be; for a new life shall come…"

- Sri Aurobindo | Savitri Book 10, Canto 1
