At the Feet of The Mother

March 3, 1914 (PM 030)

This prayer teaches us how to treat material things.

March 3, 1914

AS the day of departure draws near, I enter into a sort of calm collectedness; I turn with an affectionate seriousness towards all those thousand little trifles which surround us and which have silently played during so many years the part of faithful friends; I thank them with gratitude for all the charm they have been able to impart from the outside to our life; I wish, if they are destined to pass for a long or a brief period into other hands than ours, that those hands may be gentle to them and may feel all the respect that is due to what Thy divine Love, O Lord, has made to emerge from the dark inconscience of chaos.

Then I turn towards the future and my regard becomes still more grave. What it has in store for us I do not know and am not anxious to know; outer circumstances have no importance at all; I would only wish that it may be the beginning of a new inner period, in which, more detached from material things, we may be more conscious of Thy law and more solely consecrated to its manifestation; that it may be a period of a greater light, a greater love, a more perfect devotion to Thy cause.

In a silent adoration I contemplate Thee.

The text above is quoted from the Third Edition, 1954 (translation by Rishabhchand Samsukha)

There is nothing sentimental in the true weeping that comes from the soul. All that you feel now is the blossoming of the psychic being in you and the growth of a real bhakti.
