The same word Gladius is the root for gladiator, a fighter who fights against wild beasts with the help of his sword. A sword by itself wields no strength, unless the hand that holds it has immense courage.

We begin with a prayer of the Mother, dated October 23, 1937. This is followed by a beautiful audio-visual offering on Gratitude created by the Art Studio-12 Qualities. This meditative experience takes one to a deep and quietly joyful place within where gratitude for the Divine is a spontaneous vibration of one’s inmost being.
This month, we have selected a beautiful, meditative artistic creation by an international volunteer group ‘Art Studio-12 Qualities”. Watching this small film and listening in silence to the words of the Mother and Sri Aurobindo on sincerity is a meditative experience. Join us in this collective aspiration for growing in Sincerity.
