Mirra Alfassa (21 February 1878 – 17 November 1973)-Pondichery Mother

People born all over the world become Saints and Seers guiding
The world and society towards spirituality-men or women making
No difference. Mother-Pondicherry- Aurabindo Ashram is one
Revered by all  In India and everywhere in the world!

Mirra Alfassa born on this day in Eighteen Seventy Eight
And lived up to Seventeenth November Nineteen Seventy Three,
Known to her followers as The Mother, was a spiritual guru,
An occultist and close to  Sri Aurobindo, who considered her
To be of equal yogic stature to him and called her by the name “The Mother”.
She founded the Sri Aurobindo Ashram and established Auroville
As  universal town; she was influence and inspiration to many writers and
Spiritual personalities on  Integral Yoga.

Mother was born in Paris at a bourgeois family.  she travelled to Algeria
To practise occultism under Max Théon. Then, she travelled Around
The world and finally settled in Pondicherry,  with Sri Aurobindo and his Followers.  settlement was turned into an ashram over the years, where she worked with
Sri Aurobindo in establishing Integral Yoga and guiding its Pupils.
In nineteen forty three, she started a school in the ashram
In nineteen sixty eight established Auroville, an experimental township
Free from discrimination of nationality, language, creed and politics.

My departed wife was a devotee strong for long and write to her for her grace
And soon will get solution satisfactory and prasad packet from Ashram  nice!

SOCIETY SANS CELLS!

Image result for Image of a cell phone on hand while speaking

CELLS are inevitable in the present day society all over
CELLS seem to be dangerous species- of course not human cells ever
Society sans Cells-small rooms in Jails confining convicts for life
Atrocities and criminal activities will grow, world becomes a HELL

Different days were there when great leaders like Mahatma and others
Were confined to cells for years by the cruel British- freedom struggle
It was- Andaman cells classic! Cells of today with criminals galore-
Unfortunately true and inevitable for the society’s security.

Effective communication has taken its monstrous proportion

Society sans cell phones-a safe heaven!

Against different types of exploitation-defective goods, deficiency
In services and unfair trade practices. Let us with efficiency
Guard ourselves, making use of the Act and Laws in our interest!
