Tribute to Yolande

“The experience of human life on an earth is not now for the first time enacted. It has been conducted a million times before and the long drama will again a million times be repeated. In all that we do now, our dreams, our discoveries, our swift or difficult attainments, we profit subconsciously by the experience of innumerable precursors and our labour will be fecund in planets unknown to us and in worlds yet uncreated. The plan, the peripetia, the denouement differ continually, yet are always governed by the conventions of an Eternal Art. God, Man, Nature are the three perpetual symbols.
“The idea of eternal recurrence affects with a shudder of alarm the mind entrenched in the minute, the hour, the years, the centuries, all the finite's unreal defences. But the strong soul conscious of its own immortal stuff and the inexhaustible ocean of its ever-flowing energies is seized by it with the thrill of an inconceivable rapture. It hears behind the thought the childlike laughter and ecstasy of the Infinite.”

Sri Aurobindo
Essays Divine and Human, p.141
“The Beginning and the End”

In Pondicherry with common friends and in Auroville in the years 1990-2000 we met at different occasions. H.O.M.A. offers you and all those with whom you have cooperated in the service at the work of Sri Aurobindo-Mother a profound gratitude. We never forgot that sentence, engraved in my memory “You are the guardian of the Essence of Mother’s work, continue, resist and endure.”

Thank you for everything.

After Satprem’s and Sujata’s departure we, at Savitri Bhavan, received a whole series of photos where you are with them.

May Sri Aurobindo’s-Mother’s Love carry you forever!
