Devotees throng Aurobindo Ashram on `supramental consciousness day`

Devotees today thronged the Aurobindo Ashram here and paid homage at the memorials of Sri Aurobindo and his spiritual collaborator, The Mother, on the occasion of the `Supramental Consciousness day`.

It was on this day in 1956 that `the Mother` is believed to have realized the `supramental or divine consciousness` as a result of her spiritual experiments.

The Ashram was established by Aurobindo on April 24, 1926. He passed away in 1950.
The Mother (Mira Alfassa), who died in November 1973, founded Aurobindo International Centre of Education in 1952 and the international township of Auroville, 10 km from here, in 1968.
