The Mother’s sketches of the early members of Sri Aurobindo Ashram

Dear Friends,

November 2011 marks the 85th anniversary of Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Pondicherry. On the said occasion, we would be publishing a series on the early years of the Ashram. This series would include photographs of the early members of the Ashram and reminiscences of and articles on the early period of the Ashram, etc.

We are commencing this series by publishing a number of sketches made by the Mother of the early disciples of Sri Aurobindo.

With warm regards,

Anurag Banerjee

    Except Chandulal-bhâi (whom I never met), all the portraits are so vivid and so radiant in their personality that immediately I could sense their presence. Are not there some more ?
    Best.

    Dear Anurag,
    Many many thanks for your effort to publish these sketches. Not only do they bring the personalities right before us, they also bear touches of the Sweet Mother – Her touches of creative excellence as well as those of Her endless love for the Ashramites whom she painted. And through these sketches we are also receiving Her touches of compassion.
    Thanks again for your work.
