102 nd Anniversary of The Mother's final arrival in Pondicherry

(The Mother came to Pondicherry for the second time on 24th April 1920 and stayed permanently)

Without him, I exist not;
without me, he is unmanifest.

—The Mother, 6 May 1957

The Mother came to India to meet Sri Aurobindo, and she remained in India to serve the Truth by taking Integral Yoga to the grassroot level, interpreting Sri Aurobindo's works to make it easy for the devotees to understand his philosophy of evolutionary metaphysics and setting up an Ashram to imbue the seekers with the divine presence and disseminate the teachings of Sri Aurobindo across the world.

Let's celebrate together the 102nd Anniversary of The Mother’s final arrival in Pondicherry , to mark a historical day which signifies the victory of Light over darkness, a day which became instrumental in integrating the yogic traditions of the East and the West, and make ourselves receptive for the spiritual transformation we are seeking.


The Delhi Ashram celebrated the 102 nd Anniversary of the Mother's final arrival in Pondicherry on 24th April 2022 with these activities:

Invocation in the morning by Srila Didi, a talk by Dr. Ramesh Bijlani and Musical offering by Mrs. Premsheela in the morning followed by March Past, Musical offering by Ashram choir and reading by Tara Didi in the evening.

Sri Aurobindo's words on The Mother

The more complete your faith, sincerity and surrender, the more will grace and protection be with you. And when the grace and protection of the Divine Mother are with you, what is there that can touch you or whom need you fear? A little of it even will carry you through all difficulties, obstacles and dangers; surrounded by its full presence you can go securely on your way because it is hers, careless of all menace, unaffected by any hostility however powerful, whether from this world or from worlds invisible. Its touch can turn difficulties into opportunities, failure into success and weakness into unfaltering strength. For the grace of the Divine Mother is the sanction of the Supreme and now or tomorrow its effect is sure, a thing decreed, inevitable and irresistible.

—Sri Aurobindo

There is one divine Force which acts in the universe and in the individual and is also beyond the individual and the universe. The Mother stands for all three, but she is working here in the body to bring down something not yet expressed in this material world so as to transform life here - it is so that you should regard her as the Divine Shakti working here for that purpose. She is that in the body, but in her whole consciousness she is also identified with all the other aspects of the Divine Force.

—Sri Aurobindo
