The Mother served an ultimatum on the West on March 6, 1914

When The Mother boarded Kaga Maru on March 6, 1914 in order to meet a bearded recluse in Puducherry, she served an ultimatum on the West. A private voyage; but verily a gigantic leap for the mankind. From then on, the course of history can, as well, be said to be a series of disjointed-seeming footnotes to her agenda. Sri Aurobindo occupies the Centre of Gravity of the whole humanity now. Neither politics nor economics, neither philosophy nor literature can move any further by ignoring him. What The Mother dreamt of a century back is taking shape in a way that is largely unseen. The palette of human thought and action is being remoulded and reconfigured continually for the new creation to coagulate. “If this is she of whom the world has heard, Wonder no more at any happy change.” Pranams at her lotus feet.
