Transformation We want an integral transformation, the transformation of the body and all its activities. But there is an absolutely indispensable first step that must be accomplished before anything else can be undertaken: the transformation of the consciousness. The starting-point is of course the aspiration for this transformation and the will to realise it; without that nothing can be done. But if in addition to the aspiration there is an inner opening, a kind of receptivity, then one can enter into this transformed consciousness at a single stroke and maintain oneself there. This change of consciousness is abrupt, so to say; when it occurs, it occurs all of a sudden, alth

IV A GLIMPSE OF MOTHER'S WORK IN THE SCHOOL (1)                                   FRENCH IN THE ASHRAM AND THE SCHOOL (Two or three teachers were having a discussion about the language of instruction in the school. Their discus- sion was submitted to Mother with the remark:)  Sri Aurobindo says in his book on education that the child should be taught in his mother-tongue. Sri Aurobindo did say that, but he also said many other things which complete his advice and abolish all possibility of dogmatism. Sri Aurobindo himself has often repeated that if one affirms one thing, one should be able to affirm its opposite; oth

Helping Humanity             For those who practise the integral Yoga, the welfare of humanity can be only a consequence and a result, it cannot be the aim. And if all the efforts to improve human conditions have miserably failed in the end in spite of all the ardour and enthusiasm and self-consecration they have inspired at first, it is precisely because the transformation of the conditions of human life can be achieved by another preliminary transformation, the transformation of the human consciousness or at least of a few exceptional individuals capable of laying the foundations for a more widespread transformation. But we shall return to this subject later on; it w

-61_Correspondence-(a).htm Correspondence (a) Why are no diplomas and certificates given to the students of the Centre of Education? For the last hundred years or so mankind has been suffering from a disease which seems to be spreading more and more and which has reached a climax in our times; it is what we may call “utilitarianism”. People and things, circumstances and activities seem to be viewed and appreciated exclusively from this angle. Nothing has any value unless it is useful. Certainly something that is useful – is better than something that is not. But first we must agree on what we describe as useful, useful to whom, to what, for what? For, more and more, the races who consider

National Education Our aim is not a national system of education for India, but an education for the world at large.   Sublime Mother, Our aim is no exclusive national system of edu- cation for India but an essential and fundamental edu- cation for all mankind. But, is it not true, Mother, that this education, because of India's special fitness (by virtue of its past cultural striving and attainment), is India's privilege and special responsibility towards herself and the world? At any rate, this essential edu- cation is India's national education to my mind. In fact, I regard this as the national education of each great country with
