Sri Aurobindo Ashram



The literal meaning of 'aravindh' ( the root word for Aurobindo ) is divine fragrance. Another meaning is the flower, the divine lotus. Mother Aurobindo absorbed the divine fragrance from all the five elements of nature (the sky, air, fire, water and earth), from which this world is made and transmitted the potent and latent energy of these elements through her eyes to the required levels for all her disciples.

The disproportion in the energy levels in any being ,results in sickness- both physical and mental . When she was present among us , in all her simplicity , she was transmitting through her eyes a rare yogic energy to thousands of people everyday. Hence such divine messengers are worshiped as 'Walking Gods'.

It is a blessing to experience within oneself the divinity , even when we are alive from amongst the five basic natural elements mentioned above. Mother Aurobindo had this very holy spiritual status.

Mother Aurobindo's physical appearance was to see and realize God in a crystal clear manner in any form or shape through her own eyes. Such Yogi generates holiness even if they happen to be only for a few seconds in a place.



Everyday morning on seeing the picture of Mother Aurobindo when she was a child and to meditate on the same for sometime, one can develop will power, the tendency to help and serve others. It also removes impure thoughts from the mind. Mother Aurobindo's sitting posture induces peace and tranquillity in the family.

The standing posture of Mother Aurobindo will make the children grow up with good habits and work for welfare of the society. It also removes the discriminatory feelings amongst people. Mother Aurobindo's smiling face will drive away scarcity of food.

Thus for each of Mother's appearance is a distinct and different divine power. Only those who can understand these become SADGURUS (Spiritual mentor). Homage to all these on Sundays will bestow lot of blessings.

The energy of five natural elements, is spread amongst the 72,000 Naadis (the invisible connectors between creator and created). If one can identify which connector is full of energy of what element, then he acquires the divine capacity to understand the past, to realize the present and visualize the future.

He acquires the cause and the effect of each individual in this birth; from this, he understands a way out of difficulties / diseases. Mother Aurobindo had this spiritual attainment. Through her eyes, she was bestowing to all, the concentrates of the energies of the five basic elements.

As mother Aurobindo was a reservoir without depletion of these energies, she could give such a divine blessing by a mere sight to thousands of people at the same time.
