The Mother

I can’t believe it!!! I have come to the end of my trip. I feel all is coming full circle. This past week, I had the chance to visit Auroville and the Aurobindo ashram in Puducherry. Aurobindo, a political revolutionary turned spiritual master, was very influential for me in his little pocket book The Mother. Through his, and his counterpart, The Mother’s teachings, I have deepened in my understandings of the connection between personal and social transformation and devotion to the Great Mother to bring about this transformation. It’s such a great blessing that I had the opportunity to visit with my wonderful mother, a doctor turned social change maker!!

Here are some pics of Auroville, check out the most amazing banyan tree ever. All the tree trunks that you see are actually branches of the tree that have grown to the earth. It is the official center of Auroville and close to there is the big dome, called Mother’s Temple, a place to meditate and concentrate on the divine. Jai Ma!!
