The Mother’s guidance is an ever-inspiring flame – a gift we feel with particular force in February, the month of her birth. And as we celebrate, too, the February anniversary of Auroville’s foundation, we remember with warm gratitude the action and generosity of India … not just for hosting the City of Dawn, but also for actually collaborating in its progress. Sri Aurobindo had foreseen that modern India would play a key role in nourishing humanity’s spiritual future – and in his view, a spiritual future would be the only way forward. As we gather in aspiration around the Matrimandir, the invocations from India’s ancient wisdom become all the more meaningful, inspiring us to keep the flame strong as we progress together for building a more luminous future:
O Flame! Master Strength! O Leader! You gather around you all the peoples of the world and bind them together …
Come together, all of you, speak in one voice, know with one mind … May your yearning be one, may your hearts be one, may your mind be one, so that your union be perfect.
And in the stirring words of the ancient Peace Mantra, another treasure from India’s gift to us all:
“May there be peace among all and everywhere. OM SHANTI SHANTI SHANTI”
The Auroville Universal Township needs to consolidate & complete its physical base!
LET US JOIN TOGETHER WITH A UNIFIED INTENTION TO KEEP MANIFESTING THE CITY OF DAWN!!
