“For she is the mighty and wise One who opens us to supramental infinities and the cosmic vastness, to the grandeur of the supreme Light, to a treasure-house of miraculous knowledge, to the measureless movement of the Mother’s eternal forces.”

Sri Aurobindo

“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.” 

Sri Aurobindo

Wisdom: Divine Consciousness

In this session, we seek to explore the realms of Wisdom as the power of Maheshwari. 

Does wisdom contain itself in knowledge or the ability to discern or the ability to judge with disinterestedness or the capacity to work with insight? Wisdom as it can carry us to the higher realms of consciousness where lies the true path of Sri Aurobindo’s Yoga.

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.
