Darshan Card - November 24, 2019

On the Darshan day of 24th November, we celebrate the anniversary of the descent of the Overmental Consciousness and the founding of Sri Aurobindo Ashram. The Card distributed in the Ashram on 24th November this year contains some beautiful writings of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother on these two significant events.

“The 24th November is called the day of Victory in remembrance of a very important spiritual event which took place in 1926.”
                                                                                                                The Mother

“It was the descent of Krishna into the physical.”
                                                          Sri Aurobindo

“The descent of Krishna would mean the descent of the Overmind Godhead preparing, though not itself actually bringing, the descent of Supermind and Ananda.”
                                                                                                                Sri Aurobindo

“…the  Ashram was founded or rather founded itself in 1926.”
                                                                                                                Sri Aurobindo

“[In 1926] Sri Aurobindo had given me charge of the outer work because he wanted to withdraw into concentration in order to hasten the manifestation of the Supramental consciousness and he had announced to the few people who were there that he was entrusting to me the work of helping and guiding them, that I would remain in contact with him, naturally, and that through me he would do the work.

                                                                                                                 The Mother

There was no Ashram at first, only a few people came to live near Sri Aurobindo and practice Yoga.  It was only sometime after the Mother came from Japan that it took the form of the Ashram, more from the wish of the sadhaks who desired to entrust their whole inner and outer life to the Mother than from any intention or plan of hers or of Sri Aurobindo.”
