Sri Aurobindo and The
Mother given on the Darshan Day
messages were distributed at the Sri Aurobindo Ashram during the lifetimes of
Sri Aurobindo and the Mother. The first message was issued on 21 February 1927,
soon after the Ashram was formed; the last was issued on 24 April 1973, the
year in which the Mother left her body.
During Sri Aurobindo's lifetime, messages were given out only occasionally on
the Darshan days; afterwards they were issued regularly. Some of these messages
were written expressly for the occasion by Sri Aurobindo or the Mother; other
messages were passages chosen from their works.
