Devotees throng Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Puducherry

Puducherry, Feb 21: A large number of people from across the country visited the Aurobindo Ashram here today on the occasion of 129th birth anniversary of its co-founder the 'mother'. The devotees made a beeline at the ashram since early morning. Ashram authorities had made elaborate arrangements for the devotees to stand in que and meditate at the samadhis of the 'mother' and Sri Aurobindo. When Aurobindo founded the ashram in November 1926, he entrusted its full material and spiritual charge to the 'Mother', Paris-born Alfassa. She became the leader of the community after Aurobindo's death in 1950 and passed away in 1973. (Agencies)
