I belong to no nation, no civilisation, no society, no race, but to the Divine.
I obey no master, no ruler, no law, no social convention, but the Divine.

- The Mother

One Force

It is Her 144th birth Anniversary on 21st February 2022. The below excerpt is taken from Volume 32, The Complete Works of Sri Aurobindo, The Mother – With Letters on the Mother.

One Force

Is there any difference in your working, and the Mother’s working – I mean any difference in the force or effectivity?

No, it is a single Power.

23 May 1933

Of course you are right in saying we are one and whatever is given is from both.  If I give, the Mother’s Force goes with it, or else the sadhak would get nothing, and if the Mother gives, my support goes with it and gives it my light as well as the Mother’s. It is two sides of one indivisible action, one carrying with it the other. It is the Mother’s Force that gives the push, but also the peace.

Questions and Answers

Our ordinary life is fraught with doubts, confusions and questions on its various aspects. Our Questions and Answers section is a compilation of questions on multiple subjects, asked by aspirants to Sri Aurobindo and The Mother and the answers given by Them. Please visit - an answer may be awaiting you, even if you do not have a question.


You have only to aspire, to keep yourself open to the Mother, to reject all that is contrary to her will and to let her work in you — doing also all your work for her and in the faith that it is through her force that you can do it. If you remain open in this way, the knowledge and realisation will come to you in due course.

– Sri Aurobindo

Or it could also be a strong aspiration that blindly seeks an expression.

Sri Aurobindo as a teacher at Baroda College

Sri Aurobindo was a favourite amongst His students at Baroda College – for His unique teaching style but more for His personality which was both magnetic and gentle.

In His classes, He would introduce the subjects to the students in a way that first intrigued their interest and caught their attention. Then He would get into the depths of the subject and help the students explore multiple dimensions of it.

Readers' Column

Our incapacities are occasions for our celebration. And why so? Let Sushmita explain.

A cherished incapacity!

In the Unity duality none, containing all in Itself, in It all ‘an other’ loses its identity. Antonyms turn out as synonyms, even if not humming the harmony of a homonym. 

Disintegration is realised as integration in essence, essentially leading to integration veiled as disintegration. Destruction reveals the hidden ongoing construction… Meanings take a huge bashing and beating!

An all-pervasive crashing and crushing down of the facades of individuality it is… and thus of superiority, of inferiority, as well, none capable anymore of being a justification or an excuse… 

Capacity and incapacity too naturally face each other as one, having collapsed and coalesced… And in times such as these, with wars and battles being fought, in the battlefields within and hence without, though in a very garbed and subtle manner, mankind facing the hard and harsh reflections of its own ignorant projections, a cry, a prayer comes out, seeking an ‘essential incapacity’, and a cherished one at that…
