Description

Editor's Note

 

Flowers and Their Messages is primarily a book of the Mother, where Sri Aurobindo's touch is undoubtedly felt. The spiritual significances of flowers are, we believe, a completely new way of looking at them. It may also be called a book of the Integral Yoga, for the Mother used flowers as an aid in our self-development to realise the highest possibilities that await us. A conscious and intimate relationship with flowers can help us to experience a beautiful communion with the Divine. Sri Aurobindo once remarked: "The plants are very psychic but they can express it only by silence and beauty." Here the Mother has made of that beauty an eloquent and potent expression.

 

This revised and enlarged edition has in the Introduction a few more passages from the writings of the Mother and Sri Aurobindo. The section 'Nature, the Mother and Flowers' traces her sensitivity to Nature and her intuitive work of giving the spiritual significances of the flowers that were offered to her. Two other lists have been inserted: the first is a compilation of some of the names previously used by the Mother; the second gives the corresponding name to hibiscus flowers first given for Auroville. We have added one more flower that Mother named but was not included till now. This Hibiscus appears on page 115.

 

As in earlier editions the order of botanical names is followed, but these are often shortened by giving only the generic name. In the case of the conifers and the orchids however, the family name is used, since the Mother named the family as a whole. For the few scientific- minded readers, there is on page 297 a short list of alternative botanical names corresponding to the ones used in this book.

 

The Mother once remarked during a conversation that she could transmit a state of consciousness more easily to a flower than to a human being.

 

When the first edition of this book was in preparation she said: "This is a book for those who want to know what flowers tell us."

 

It is our joy to share this gift of the Mother with all who cherish and treasure flowers.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Artwork received today. Very pleased both with the product quality and speed of delivery. Many thanks for your help.
Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
