The preceding post, written two years ago and re-blogged from this very blog of mine, explained what happened on this date in 1926, that made the 24th November one of the ‘Darshan Days’ celebrated since then at the Sri Aurobindo Ashram by a yearly regular ‘Darshan’: Sri Aurobindo and the Mother would come out for all the interested disciples to pass in front of them and get their blessings on this special occasion.
On a more personal note now, just a few lines, as since this morning I have found myself singing softly to myself again, from time to time, a little song of Love for my dear Krishna that came to me many years ago, while looking at a beautiful, large and strong, yet delicate flower of a pale lavender color that Mother had identified as expressing in the plant kingdom “Krishna’s Light in the mind”. Just by itself then, a little melody had formed in me, with these simple words as lyrics, felt intensely yet so sweetly at every level of my being:
“Krishna’s Light in the mind,
Krishna’s Light in the heart,
Krishna’s Light in the cells,
Krishna, Krishna, Krishna!”
There. My personal offering to You on this special day, my dear Lord and Friend and Lover Krishna…
