Christmas Messages by the Mother of Sri Aurobindo Ashram

Christmas was designated by the Mother as the festival of the return of the Light .)




1962
May the New Light illumine your thoughts and your lives,
govern your hearts and guide your action.
Blessings.

1963
Joyeux Noel.
Let us celebrate the Light by letting it enter into us.

1964
If you want peace upon earth, first establish peace in your heart.
If you want union in the world, first unify the different parts of your being.
Blessings.

1965
Bon Noel to all.

1966
Bon Noel to all, in Peace and Joy.
May this new Christmas be for you the advent of a new light, higher and purer.

1967
Union and goodwill upon earth.
Behind the rigidity of the outward celebrations there is a living symbol;
it is this that we must remember.

Peace and goodwill to all.
Unless a break is made with the habits and the beliefs of the past,
there is little hope of advancing rapidly towards the future.

1968
Love the Truth.
Let the light dawn in your consciousness.
Blessings to all.

1969
Hail the new light.
That it may grow in all hearts.
Blessings.


1971
The time has come for the rule of falsehood to end.
In the Truth alone is salvation.


1972
We want to show to the world that man can become a true servitor of the Divine.
Who will collaborate in all sincerity ?

The Mother's prayer to Father Christmas)


Father Christmas,
I evoke you today!
Answer our call. Come bearing all your marvellous gifts.
You are the great dispenser of worldly possessions;
you are the untiring friend who hears every request
and grants it generously.
Give each one the material object he desires,
and as for me, give me enough,
give me much so that I may give largely to all.



Significances of the gifts offered by the three Magi to Jesus at the time of his birth )


Gold: wealth of the world and supramental knowledge.
Frankincense: purification of the vital.
Myrrh: immortalisation of the body.
