To the Mother

Om Douce Mère, May my surrender be so complete that I am moved only by Thee.
Om Sri Aurobindo, may I participate in the Work, as You like me to do – spontaneously.               

May I be so replete with You  that I may absorb

All ignorant shocks
Give me strength and peace
To withstand the violence of the unillumined consciousness

Lead me in the right direction.
May we not get caught in any wrong movement.

May my surrender become perfect.
May I see the unbound, unconditioned Supreme Godhead,
Eternal and infinite in all manifestation
And beyond all in a timeless, spaceless Infinity.

MayThy limitless Love unite all the people
May Thy peace and unity triumph everywhere
May I become a perfect instrument in Thy hands
May I become fully aware of the divine  will
May I become more and more conscious of the Divine.
Inspire us to do the right thing in a spontaneous way .
May my life be consecrated to the most difficult task.
May I be possessed by the self realising divine power

When the eye is open then, through all the innumerable creeks
in things and beings one sees only the Divine everywhere.
It is a constant ceaseless manifestation of the Divine.

All is done by the Divine, in the Divine.
As we become conscious of the Divine,
we move more and more with the divine rhythm
In a satisfied harmony

May I be always conscious of the Divine, the Ocean
and may I not loose myself in the play of the waves

May I see the Ocean even in the spray
Thrown out by the dancing waves.
