THE MOTHER OF PONDICHERRY
Many leaders visited the Ashram,
To mention a few among them,
Were Pandit J. Nehru, Indira Gandhi
Kamaraj, and Lalbahadur Sastri.
Miracles not one but many to tell,
Mother did on her part so well,
That the world war among Nations,
One day ended in total peace.
The world began to admire her,
Among other things, her power
To resolve disputes and problems,
By her noble thoughts and deeds.
People thronged at her place,
All craving for her blessings,
Feeling relived from their distress,
Happily went back to their homes.
More than 500 saris she had
Which she had distributed
Among several of her devotees,
In order to fulfill their desires.
Her knowledge on 800 flowers,
In fact, was so tremendous,
That for each one of them,
She gave a different name.
She felt always about flowers
That they have their feelings
Of pride, vanity, and sensitivity,
Besides their own natural beauty.
Her contacts with several Gods,
Particularly Durga, the Goddess,
During her meditations many times,
Showed her surrender to the Supreme.
In 1950, Sri Aurobindo passed away,
But she saw regularly his subtle body,
From 1959 onwards, still as her guide,
The same role, what he did, when he lived.
When she was in deep meditation,
In place of her head, she saw a moon,
Above the moon’s level, she saw a sun,
And she found herself a being of light.
When she reached the ninth level
Of consciousness, she used to feel,
How she was able to come down,
To the bottom-most level once again.
