MOTHER.: Is it January?
yes, Mother -it is January.
Read what is written here.
(Every month I used to take to Mother a large calender
on which flowers were painted and on which She used to write a prayer
" In this year of Sri Aurobindo's centenary,
let us strive to be worthy ofHim..."
And then ?
"...by following His teaching faithfully
in order to prepare the advent of the superman. Happy New rear."
What flower is this? (pointing to the painted flower) "Superhumanity".
This is "superhumanity".
The name of this flower is "superhumanity".
Which flower is it ?
This flower -it is the dahlia.
Dahlia! Yes, yes.
(Mother writes the prayer for the month of
Februrary and draws "OM" underneath) "Nature
rediscovers the Divine in a blissful surrender."
With the help of OM one can realise the Divine. OM has a transforming
power. OM represents the Divine.
yes, it represents the Divine. It represents the Divine.
OM, but OM is the sound?
The sound -*They say that_all the aspirations of the world when going
towards the Divine make 0- ---M, like that.* (Mother chants the word)
*And then, that is why they say "OM".* Mother, please
say it once again. Please say it again.
OM, it is fine, Mother, it was vely beautiful.
Mother, once more, please.
And now ?
*It is like this everywhere.* 0- ---M. 0- ---M. yes,
*Look here, I was in France some, I think, 60 years ago. There was
a Frenchman who came back from the Himalayas, who had stayed there some
time and he gave a lecture, and I listened to the lecture and in the lecture
he said that when he was deep in the Himalayas, there was a Sannyasin
whom he didn't know, came to see him and told him only this 0 M and that
he was completely changed. And then, when he said 0 M, I felt the same
change in me, ...as if the Divine was coming in. 0- ---M.* There you are.
Good, good. Keep the secret.
You will recall this: 0- ---M. 0- ---M. That's all. 0- ---M. It must
be manifested. If anything goes wrong, repeat OM, all will go well.
( Written to a disciple) OM is the signature
of the Lord.
* The words ill between the two asterisks- whenever they appear - were
spoken in English by Mother.
