These selections from the Mother’s works reveal the truths behind the facades of old age and death, that they are the habits of Nature, and that the incapacity to grow and progress is the real deterioration into old age. The book has been brought out by ARKA, a community for senior Aurovilians, which is dedicated to manifesting the Mother’s vision of Auroville as a place of “unending education, of constant progress, and a youth that never ages”.
“Sri Aurobindo came upon earth to announce the manifestation of the supramental world. And not only did he announce this manifestation but he also embodied in part the supramental force and gave us the example of what we must do to prepare ourselves for this manifestation. The best thing we can do is to study all he has told us, strive to follow his example, and prepare ourselves for the new manifestation. This gives life its true meaning and will help us to overcome all obstacles. Let us live for the new creation and we shall grow stronger and stronger while remaining young and progressive.”
