At the Feet of The Mother

India and the world

There seems to be a revival of the Nation-idea in recent times. On the other hand another idea that is getting strong is the idea of Internationalism. Today we share some of Sri Aurobindo’s thoughts on the subject.
Non-violence is a spiritual principle but Wars too, like the Mahabharata, can be an instrument that Divine may use for the evolutionary march of mankind. Today we share the deep insights given by the Mother and Sri Aurobindo on this issue in the backdrop of the recent border conflicts on the Indian borders.
The 2nd October is celebrated as the International day of Nonviolence. How does it work if it works at all? Is it good to adopt this as a national policy? These are some of the issues we reflect today in the Light of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother.
The Mother and Sri Aurobindo have acted both in the past as well as the present upon world events giving them a certain direction for the future. There were many points where they intervened thereby shaping our history. Today we take a look at one such slice of history with reference to the problems that India faces from the twin borders of China and Pakistan.
Russia is a land impregnated with the seed of spirituality. Deep within its past, it was the land through which ancient mystics or Rishis migrated from the Arctic region during the previous Ice-Age towards more habitable regions. Another way is to look within its soul that seeks to establish the Ideal of Brotherhood and Fraternity in humanity. Finally, to the devotees and disciples of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother, Russia is indeed a special place being the place of Her last incarnation just before the present one.

"…India is a grand old laboratory, chosen by the Divine for a certain kind of evolutionary experiment. It is country, containing all the desiderata of the past, making it an amazingly complex, many-sided, fascinating Motherland, Mother, Goddess." (CN09)
Sri Aurobindo released the power of the Word through the Arya and various other writings that are now available in the form of books such as ‘The Synthesis of Yoga’, ‘The Life Divine’, ‘The Human Cycle’ apart from his commentaries on the Vedas, Upanishads and the Gita. The word Arya itself has a profound meaning.
When the divine takes a human form, he brings with him some precious gifts for his lovely daughter earth. These are the dreams that he implants in earth’s subtle atmosphere. When earth and man is ready these gifts will begin to reveal themselves. In his well-known message given on India’s Independence, Sri Aurobindo mentions five dreams.
Sri Aurobindo worked in different aspects of human consciousness and everywhere he established the needed lines along which humanity could grow and progress. All that is needed now is a sincere Yes from our side and an opening to the Divine Consciousness that He has brought down and established upon earth.
