Earlier, Francis gave a call that 24th April being the Mother’s final and permanent return to Pondicherry, people mediate and express their silent gratitude to her during the early morning, no matter where they are. That’s beautiful.
I believe that the human mind needs nourishment even to feel better, to think better, to understand better.
Yesterday evening, an inmate of Sri Aurobindo Ashram and a donor to A4A sent me an audio file via WhatsApp in connection with the Mother’s final return to Pondicherry exactly 100 years ago on 24th April 1920. The clear and distinct and disciplined voice in the audio imbued with devotion read selected passages from the Mother’s and Sri Aurobindo’s writings, questions and answers, conversations etc. The selection was revelatory and inspiring – narrating beautiful experiences right from Mother’s teenage to the final push in Japan – an experience of the supreme more marvellous than described in the book Bhagwat Gita turning her to the West, to India, to a horizon at the end of which was Sri Aurobindo. It also speaks of her first and second meeting with Sri Aurobindo, besides many other significant insights and revelations. Total duration of the audio is 25 minutes and 25 seconds!
You will be able to celebrate your 24th April – the centenary of the Mother’s permanent return - in a much better way by listening to this audio. The breath of a purer and truer consciousness will enter in your atmosphere. This is what I call the worthwhile nourishment to the mind & soul.

A request - Having derived the benefit, forward the link to your friends and fellow disciples and post it on your social media.
PS: Also the website of the Overman Foundation has today published “almost all the available photographs of the Mother taken on 24th April from 1951 to 1973.”
