21st February The Mother’s Birthday – 28th February Auroville Inauguration Day – 29th February The Golden Day

One of the most profound statements of Sri Aurobindo on the Mother was by way of an answer to a 20 year-old disciple, Nagin Doshi. When asked about the purpose of the Mother’s embodiment, Sri Aurobindo wrote: “The Mother comes in order to bring down the supramental and it is the descent which makes her full manifestation here possible.”

This single sentence answer of Sri Aurobindo speaks of the essence of the Mother’s mission – to bring down on earth a new consciousness which will open up the way to the full manifestation of the divine grandeur in matter and organize a divine life upon earth.

The descent of the new consciousness took place on 29th February 1956. The Mother described it as follows:

“This evening the Divine Presence, concrete and material, was there present amongst you. I had a form of living gold, bigger than the universe, and I was facing a huge and massive golden door which separated the world from the Divine.

As I looked at the door, I knew and willed, in a single movement of consciousness, that ‘the time has come’, and lifting with both hands a mighty golden hammer I struck one blow, one single blow on the door and the door was shattered to pieces.

Then the supramental Light and Force and Consciousness rushed down upon earth in an uninterrupted flow.

Four years later, on the first anniversary of the descent of the Supramental force, the Mother wrote: “The Golden Day: Henceforth, the 29th February will be the day of the Lord.”

This year, 29th February 2024 will be the 26th anniversary of the Supramental descent. A day before on 28th February 2024, it will be the 56th anniversary of Auroville’s inauguration. Today, we see the acceleration of change in human life, shaking up our notions, breaking structures down, making way for something new. What this “new” will be depends a lot on us. Auroville if she develops as The Mother envisioned, planned and willed for the Earth, if Auroville becomes the face of India and the world’s deepest and highest aspiration, then the soul of humanity will find an external vehicle for it to come forward, and the future direction of human life would proceed on the sunlit path.

It is with this insight and aspiration that we work for the Acres for Auroville campaign, to concretize the physical space for this advent. The fundamental attitude is to contribute to the future orientation of humanity through the unique and unified development of Auroville. We regard you, all our friends and donors, as valued collaborators in this shaping of the future course for us all, and for the generations to come.


With trust in Auroville’s bright future,
