The Adoration of the Divine Mother ~ Sri Aurobindo

Key to eternity

A burning Love from white spiritual founts
Annulled the sorrow of the ignorant depths;
Suffering was lost in her immortal smile.
A Life from beyond grew conqueror here of death;
To err no more was natural to mind;
Wrong could not come where all was light and love.
The Formless and the Formed were joined in her:
Immensity was exceeded by a look,
A Face revealed the crowded Infinite.
Incarnating inexpressibly in her limbs
The boundless joy the blind world-forces seek,
Her body of beauty mooned the seas of bliss.
At the head she stands of birth and toil and fate,
In their slow round the cycles turn to her call;
Alone her hands can change Time’s dragon base.
Hers is the mystery the Night conceals;
The spirit’s alchemist energy is hers;
She is the golden bridge, the wonderful fire.
The luminous heart of the Unknown is she,
A power of silence in the depths of God;
She is the Force, the inevitable Word,
The magnet of our difficult ascent,
The Sun from which we kindle all our suns,
The Light that leans from the unrealised Vasts,
The joy that beckons from the impossible,
The Might of all that never yet came down.
All Nature dumbly calls to her alone
To heal with her feet the aching throb of life
And break the seals on the dim soul of man
And kindle her fire in the closed heart of things.
All here shall be one day her sweetness’ home,
All contraries prepare her harmony;
Towards her our knowledge climbs, our passion gropes;
In her miraculous rapture we shall dwell,
Her clasp shall turn to ecstasy our pain.
Our self shall be one self with all through her.

  1. I will probably be jumped for this,
    as this extraction and display is incredible,
    but “what do you think?”

    I look forward to your words and passion, ‘joybringer’ — bring it on

    papa

  2. Thank YOU Incredible souls for sharing this eternal fascination, amazement and enchantment by and with the Divine Mother and Sacred Feminine in each one of us. Her endless beauty, wisdom and mysticism have inspired always and forever and her extraordinary energy and power to move, nurture and heal have trascended even our own imagination…

    We are blessed to experience her grace within and around us and to be part of her divine dance with our souls as we co-create with her and the Divine Father and Sacred Masculine the unfolding realization that we are always already and timelessly One, also felt as Love and Pure Joy.

    May we be true expressions of her gentle kindness, fiery passion, infinite wisdom and unconditional love as we are. May our journeys be filled with the touch of her universal soul, the nectar of her cosmic being and the wonder of her miraculous spirit…

  3. How beautiful, the image the words, creates a divine perfection for sure, thank you for bringing this beauty down in this internet realm, I am touched.
