We have been devotees of The Mother and Sri Aurobindo for four generations and we try, as far as possible to go by their teachings. I, on my part have a long, long way to go. Maybe this lifetime will not be enough for me to be a true devotee. The pull of external world becomes too much to resist. I am happy to be in this community

But I also have a mission. There are people dwelling in indifferent levels of consciousness, and our effort is to point them, however modestly, to the path of self discovery. At least they have taken a turn, in the right direction. I feel we have to still talk to them in the language they understand, or are beginning to understand. That's what we are trying to do in our website Copperstrings. I don't know if this will be considered spamming. Grateful to hear your views. ► Reply to This

Mahalakshmi: The aspect of the Mother we all turn to with joy and longing
Published on: May 10, 2009 by Abhijit Banerjee Last updated on: Aug 21, 2009
The Divine Mother plays a prominent role in Eastern religions, especially Hinduism. In his essay, The Mother, Sri Aurobindo says “the Mother is one but she comes before us with differing aspects.” There are four major aspects of the Mother Divine. Maheshwari, Mahakali, Mahasaraswati, and Mahalakshmi. These different aspects of the transcendental Mother have different qualities and perform different functions. In this journal I reproduce the section on the power of Mahalakshmi as "there is no aspect of the Divine Shakti more attractive to the heart of the embodied beings. Maheshwari can appear too calm and great and distant for the littleness of earthly nature to approach or contain her, Mahakali too swift and formidabl... more>

‘All wealth belongs to the Divine and those who hold it are trustees, not possessors.’
Published on: Mar 21, 2009 by Abhijit Banerjee
One relationship is dominating world consciousness today. Our relationship with money. And a whole lot of us are facing the prospect of a break-up in this relationship. Is there an inherent flaw in the relationship which we are not able to see? “The seekers or keepers of wealth are more often possessed rather than its possessors,” Sri Aurobindo wrote in ‘The Mother.’ In a section on money he points out what should be our true relation with this universal force called money: “All wealth belongs to the Divine and those who hold it are trustees, not possessors. It is with them today, tomorrow it may be elsewhere.” While we seek countless methods to solve the current economic crisis, I thought it relevant to take a look at ... more> Comment(s) : 2

Jaipur blast : 'There are Hands that save'
Published on: May 15, 2008 by Abhijit Banerjee
I was reading Sri Aurobindo's Savitri- the epic poem running some 9000 lines over almost 875 pages. This magnum opus can hardly be fathomed or completely read through in the life time of ordinary mortal like me. However, I literally stumbled over this page today and read what the Sage had seen in his seer vision (ref: Jaipur blast). I quote a few lines from those pages: Quote from Sri Aurobindo’s Savitri, Book Seven, Canto Two, P.481-482 Man’s lower nature hides theseawful guests, Their vast contagion gripssometimes man’s world, An awful insurgence overpowersman’s soul. In house and house this uprising grows; Hell’s companies are loosed todo this work, Into the earth- ways they break-out fromal... more>

Recycling some of the year's interesting journals - Part I
Published on: Oct 26, 2009 by Abhijit Banerjee
For those of you who have joined Copperstrings recently, and even those not so recently, I thought it might be useful to recycle some of the interesting journals which have been written earlier in the year. All these journals were well appreciated and extensively read and are still being read. Many topics are timeless, and can be discussed again and again. I am bringing these journals back to the spotlight so that newcomers and others who may have missed them, have a chance to read and share their experiences. more>
