Some Thoughts on Pruning 2003 After you complete a work of pruning it should look as if you had never been there. I have had during my life the great blessing of working intimately with trees, pruning them in tropical, sub-tropical and temperate climates. It has always been a sacred work, a collaboration with the spirit of the species to understand its nature and the expression of beauty it manifests and to work with it to enhance its beauty and help in realizing its aspiration. The work of pruning can be physically demanding and req
Resource name: /E-Library/Disciples/Narad/English/Flowers and Gardens/Photographing Flowers - A letter to a Disciple.htm
Dear Friend, I received your photographs and can feel the sincerity with which you are approaching this work for the Mother. Your aspiration is exemplary. Another flower book is now in the press. It is a updated and expanded version of the first book, Flowers and Their Messages, and the cover is in color, but again, it is without color photos inside. This is why the Field Guide will be so valuable to those aspiring to learn the significance of flowers. Le

Remembrance of Sri Aurobindo Lobelia 'Cambridge Blue' This is the correct color of the Lobelia named by Mother and grown in the Matrimandir Gardens Nursery. I brought Her flowers in a plastic bag on my motorcycle, entered the Ashram where Tara was waiting, and would stand below Her room and hear Her exclaim on their beauty. This significance is one of the most beautiful to me and is forever held in my heart.

Beginning of the Supramental Realisation Butea monosperma (B. frondosa) In the early years of Auroville, specifically the early 1970’s one could see Butea trees lining the village tanks.  Today they are not so plentiful but nonetheless offer a magnificent glowing picture against the background of water and sky. The Mother has given us its message, “Beginning of the Supramental Realisation” and she has given us the most wonderful comment: “With its charming beauty it is the herald of victory. Indeed this tree in full bloom is a breathtaking sight.  It certainly justifies its common name, “Flame of the Forest”.  In India it is known as Palash
Resource name: /E-Library/Disciples/Narad/English/Flowers and Gardens/A New Flower book of Flowers and Their Messages given by The Mother.htm
A New Flower book of Flowers and Their Messages Given by the Mother October 2012 Dear Ashramites, Devotees and Disciples all over the world, About three years ago I received a strong intuition that gave me a clear vision as to how to create a new flower book that would be so easy to use that anyone would be able to identify any flower Mother named without difficulty. The book will be titled “A Field Guide to Flowers and Their Messages” and would include a photograph of the flower in full colour with a measurement to show its actual size. Flowers would be grouped in sections by colour and the outer

Mother’s Garden – May 2012 Cherry Trees and Flower Significances Other than the first major revision of the nearly 900 significances Mother gave to flowers and the subsequent two-volume edition with colour photographs, there has not been much written on the messages that flowers give to the world. It is well documented that some people have the ability to see fairies at work in the garden and in fact in all of Nature. What we need now are people to develop the inner communication with flowers to be able to give their essential message or ‘spiritual signif

Mother’s Garden in Georgia – Mid May 2012 Beauty in Art – The Regal Peony The peony, beloved of flowers in the orient as well as in temperate climates is prized for the beauty of its form the fragrance and abundance from early spring until the onset of hot weather. As there are innumerable types of peonies, a subject too vast to cover in an article, we will focus only on those peonies grown in Mother’s Garden. Mother has given the peony the significance “Beauty in Art” and here is Her comment.

Mother’s Garden in Georgia – Early Spring The Power of Beauty Magnolias, Daffodils and More Before we look at these magnificent harbingers of spring let us contemplate what Mother has written about discovering the significances of flowers. We reproduce below Her comment in Her hand. Lorsqu'on est en rapport conscient avec son propre être psychique on s'aperçoit qu'il y a un psychique impersonnel derrière toute la création et alors à traverrs lui on peut entrer en rapport avec le

Mother’s Garden in Georgia – April 24, 2012 In Honour of the Mother’s final arrival in Pondicherry, April 24, 1920 Hellebores and Iris The Lenten Rose (Helleborus) are about to scatter their seeds in shady areas throughout Mother’s Garden. They have become a special delight for me as they are in bloom throughout the winter and still blooming when I return from the Ashram in March. The flowers are modest, usually nodding, and subtle in their colour range. New colours appear frequently as the plants, much like my beloved

Mother’s Garden in Georgia – June 2012 Collective Harmony One of the stunning displays of early summer is the flowering of hydrangeas. To these Mother has given the name “Collective Harmony”, and Her comment is powerful, revealing and of great significance in these turbulent days. “Collective harmony is the work undertaken by the Divine Consciousness; it alone has the power to realise it.” There are four major types of hydrangea and they vary from immense shrubs to compact miniatures.
