About us

The universe is not merely a mathematical formula for working out the relation of certain mental abstractions called numbers and principles to arrive in the end at a zero or a void unit, neither is it merely a physical operation embodying a certain equation of forces. It is the delight of a Self-lover, the play of a Child, the endless self-multiplication of a Poet intoxicated with the rapture of His own power of endless creation.

Poetry, articles on love



       At last I find a meaning of soul's birth
             Into this universe terrible and sweet,
       I who have felt the hungry heart of earth
             Aspiring beyond heaven to Krishna's feet.
       I have seen the beauty of immortal eyes,
             And heard the passion of the Lover's flute,
        And known a deathless ecstasy's surprise
             And sorrow in my heart for ever mute.
        Nearer and nearer now the music draws,
             Life shudders with a strange felicity;
        All Nature is a wide enamoured pause
             Hoping her lord to touch, to clasp, to be.
        For this one moment lived the ages past;
        The world now throbs fulfilled in me at last.

If Idea embracing Force begot the worlds, Delight of Being begot the Idea. Because the Infinite conceived an innumerable delight in itself, therefore worlds and universes came into existence.

   SRI AUROBINDO, Thoughts and Glimpses

There are other great Personalities of the Divine Mother. ...There are among them Presences indispensable for the supramental realisation,-most of all one who is her Personality of that mysterious and powerful ecstasy and Ananda which flows from a supreme divine Love, the Ananda that alone can heal the gulf between the highest heights of the supramental spirit and the lowest abysses of Matter, the Ananda that holds the key of a wonderful divinest Life and even now supports from its secrecies the work of all the other Powers of the universe.
