“The way of Yoga followed here has a different purpose from others,—for its aim is not only to rise out of the ordinary ignorant world consciousness into the divine consciousness, but to bring the supramental power of that divine consciousness down into the ignorance of mind, life and body, to transform them, to manifest the Divine here and create a divine life in Matter.”

Wisdom: Divine Consciousness

In this session, we seek to explore the power of Maheshwari & the all-embracing breadth of her realms of Wisdom. Above the mind, all contradictions and perspectives are inextricable parts of the One. Man seeks for Truth, grasps a strand and calls it truth, opposing it to other strands. What aid might Maheshwari offer in this quest of ours?

Wisdom: Matrimandir

Maheshwari is the Power that can build our soul and our nature into the divine Truth and it is to her we may address our aspiration for Knowledge and Wisdom. Laying at her feet our ego, abandoning ourselves to the Supreme, we may reach true wisdom. In this session, we shall discuss the role and purpose of Matrimandir in Auroville, and its effect on the residents.
