Sketches by the Mother

The 24th November is called the day of Victory in remembrance of a very important spiritual event which took place in 1926

The Mother

***

It was the descent of Krishna into physical.

Sri Aurobindo

***

Krishna is not the supramental Light. The descent of Krishna would mean the descent of the Overmind Godhead preparing, though not itself actually, the descent of Supermind and Ananda. Krishna is the Anandamaya; he supports the evolution through the Overmind leading it towards the Ananda.

Sri Aurobindo

The Ashram was born a few years after my return from Japan, in 1926.

The Mother

***

The Ashram was created with another object than that ordinarily common to such institutions, not for renunciation of the world but as a centre and a field of practice for the evolution of another kind and form of life which would in the final end be moved by a higher spiritual consciousness and embody a greater life of the spirit
