Mirra Alfassa (1878-1973) was a French mystic who grew up in Paris and came to India, where she became the spiritual partner of Indian yogi and philosopher Sri Aurobindo (1872-1950). This talk will discuss her role and contribution to the Integral Yoga and the work of manifesting the collective vision of the yoga that she accomplished.
This introductory satsang prepares us for the onsite program given by Debashish Banerjee May 24-26 where we will learn more about the life and teachings of the Divine Mother and the Integral Yoga of Sri Aurobindo.
Offered as 1 satsang (subject to change).
