The Mother's birthday: The Mother is born in Paris to a Turkish father and an Egyptian mother. She is named Blanche Rachel Mirra Alfassa. The Mother came to the earth with a great spiritual mission. Sri Aurobindo has said: “The Mother comes in order to bring the Supramental.” “Her embodiment is a chance for the earth-consciousness to receive the Supramental into it and undergo the transformation necessary for that to be possible.” A collective meditation is held at Sri Aurobindo Ashram at 6 am following which The Mother’s room is opened for Darshan.
