The Mother left her physical body on 17th November 1973. The Card distributed in Sri Aurobindo Society on 17th November this year, contains this message on Faith given by Sri Aurobindo.
“Do not allow any outward circum-
stance to shake the faith in you; for
nothing gives greater strength than
this faith to go through and arrive at
the goal. Knowledge and tapasya,
whatever their force, have a less
sustaining power — faith is the
strongest staff for the journey.
The protection is there over you
and the watchful love of the Mother.
Rely upon it and let your being open
more and more to it — then it will
repel attacks and always uphold you.”

(Message given by Sri Aurobindo
on 8 October 1936)
