Prayers and Meditations - The Mother

October 16, 1914

It is Thy Will that I should be like a channel, always open,

always wider, through which Thy forces may pour

themselves in abundance on the world ....................

O Lord, let Thy Will be done.

Am I not Thy Will and Thy consciousness in a felicity supreme?

The being grows immeasurably in largeness and becomes

vast like the Universe.                               - The Mother

                 RADHA’S PRAYER

O Thou whom at first sight I knew for the Lord of my being and my God, receive my offering. Thine are all my thoughts, all my emotions, all the sentiments of my heart, all my sensations, all the movements of my life, each cell of my body, each drop of my blood. I am absolutely and altogether Thine, Thine without reserve. What Thou wilt of me, that I shall be. Whether Thou chooses for me life or death, happiness or sorrow, pleasure or suffering, all that comes to me from Thee will be welcome. Each one of Thy gifts will be always for me a gift divine bringing with it the supreme Felicity.                                                                                   13 January 1932

MY aspiration to Thee, O Lord, has taken the form of a beautiful rose, harmonious, full in bloom, rich in fragrance. I stretch it out to Thee with both arms in a gesture of offering and I ask of Thee: If my understanding is limited, widen it; if my knowledge is obscure, enlighten it; if my heart is empty of ardors, set it aflame; if my love is insignificant, make it intense; if my feelings are ignorant and egoistic, give them the full consciousness in the Truth. And the “I” which demands this of Thee, O Lord, is not a little personality lost amidst thousands of others. It is the whole earth that aspires to Thee in a movement full of fervor.

O my Sweet Master, my heart is a flaming chapel, and Thou art seated there permanently like the sublimes of idols; so it is that Thy form appears to me, clothed in magnificence, in the midst of the flames consuming my heart for Thee, and at the same time, in my head, I see Thee, know Thee as the Inconceivable, the Unknowable, the Formless; and in this double perception, this double knowledge, lies the plenitude of contentment.

O MY beloved Lord, my heart is bowed before Thee, my arms are stretched towards Thee imploring Thee to set all this being on fire with Thy sublime love that it may radiate from there on the world. My heart is wide open in my breast; my heart is open and turned towards Thee, it is open and empty that Thou mayst fill it with Thy divine Love; it is empty of all but Thee and Thy presence fills it through and through and yet leaves it empty, for it can contain also all the infinite variety of the manifested world. . . .O Lord, my arms are outstretched in supplication towards Thee, my heart is wide open before Thee, that Thou mayst make of it a reservoir of Thy infinite love.“Love me in all things, everywhere and in all beings” was Thy reply. I prostrate myself before Thee and ask of Thee to give me that power.

THERE is a Power that no ruler can command; there is a Happiness that no earthly success can bring; there is a Light that no wisdom can possess; there is a Knowledge that no philosophy and no science can master; there is a Bliss of which no satisfaction of desire can give the enjoyment; there is a thirst for Love that no human relation can appease; there is a Peace that one finds nowhere, not even in death. It is the Power, the Happiness, the Light, the Knowledge, the Bliss, the Love, the Peace that flow from the Divine Grace.

Prayers and Meditations - The Mother

August 25, 1914

O Lord, let Thy Will be done.

Thy work be accomplished.

Fortify our devotion,

increase our  surrender,

give us light upon the path.

We erect Thee within us as our supreme Master

that Thou mayst become supreme Master of all the earth.

Our speech is still ignorant ; enlighten it.

Our aspiration is still imperfect : purify it.

Our action is still powerless: make it effective.

O Lord, the earth groans and suffers;

chaos has made this world its abode.

The darkness is so deep that Thou alone canst dispel it.

Come, manifest thyself, that Thy work may be accomplished.

O Lord, 
Divine Master of love, 
we want to be conscious of Thee and Thee alone,
be identified with Thy supreme law each time we choose, 
so that it may be Thy Will which moves us, 
and that our life be thus effectively and integrally consecrated to Thee.

Prayers and Meditations - The Mother

December 7, 1912

Like a flame that burns in silence,
like a perfume that rises straight upward without wavering,
my love goes to Thee;
and like the child who does not reason and has no care,
I trust myself to Thee that Thy Will may be done,
that Thy light may manifest,
Thy Peace radiate,
Thy Love cover the world.
When Though willest I shall be in Thee,
Thyself and there shall be no more any distinction;
I await that blessed hour without impatience of any kind,
letting myself flow irresistibly toward the
boundless ocean.

November 3, 1912

Let Thy Light be in me like a Fire that makes all alive; let Thy divine Love penetrate me.
I aspire with all my being for Thy reign as sovereign and master of mind and heart and body;
let them be Thy docile instruments and Thy faithful servitors.
