Twelve Photographs of the Mother’s Darshan of 24 April 1973

Dear Friends,

In the months of May and June 2017, we had published fifty photographs of the Mother’s Darshan of 21 February 1973 as well as the complete video of the same Darshan in the website of Overman Foundation.

As the next installment of our special series on the Mother, we are publishing twelve photographs of the Mother taken in the evening of 24 April 1973 when She had appeared for the Balcony Darshan.

These rare photographs have been obtained courtesy Ms. Tara Jauhar of Sri Aurobindo Ashram Delhi Branch.

With warm regards,

Anurag Banerjee


Overman Foundation.

    Sadhak: Sweet Mother,
What do you give us in the morning at the balcony*, and what should we try to do in order to receive what you are giving?
THE MOTHER: Every morning at the balcony, after establishing a conscious contact with each of those who are present, I identify myself with the Supreme Lord and dissolve myself completely in Him. Then my body, completely passive, is nothing but a channel through which the Lord passes His forces freely and pours upon all His Light, His Consciousness and His Joy, according to each one’s receptivity.
    The best way to receive what He gives is to come to the balcony with trust and aspiration and to keep oneself as calm and quiet as one can in a silent and passive state of expectation. If one has something precise to ask, it is better to ask it beforehand, not while I am there, because any activity lessens the receptivity.
    (*During this period the Mother stood for a while every morning on a balcony facing the street and gazed at the sadhaks assembled below.)
