Marseilles - France
February 21, 1998 - Mother's 120th Birthday
How did I get the idea of the montage ?
I did not get the idea ! The idea came to me... !
On Friday February
13, 1998 at 07:30 AM MET (=06:30 AM GMT) I was in my bathroom, and concentrated
on shaving myself when suddenly the Mother's voice came in front of me and said
in French : "Fais le montage" (Make the montage) and I immediately saw the
photo you have received (among the many of Mother I have) with a short text
below (and I knew that I had some digitalized texts from the Mother). It lasted
a few seconds, then it was time to go to work...
Like I already wrote it in
a message to Auroconf on November 19, 1997 I am sometimes clairaudient (= I
hear 'voices') and I am used to write down all these "messages". There are many
false messages, but when the voice comes in front of me (= before the ajna
chakra/third eye) and when I feel a certitude at the same time, I know at least
for this one time that the message is a true one. Especially when I receive an
image at the same time; for I am not a good clairvoyant, in opposite to my
In the evening on this same day after work I made the
How many have we been to have the montage ?
In the beginning I believed that only a few persons would be interested
in receiving this photo, and I was very surprised (and enjoyed!) when I
received so many requests... And from all parts of the world ! And many people
had forwarded the offer, so that many other people out of the AuroConference
and out of the Psych-list have asked for and received the montage.
the day of Friday February 20, 1998 I asked myself many times : "How many will
we be until the 21st, until the time of the meditation at the Samadhi in the
Ashram ?" Every time I asked, I received the image of Mother and I heard her
saying "Ton âge!" (= your age!). But in the same time, I received the
images of the numbers 44 (my actual age) and 45. I did not understand
But late in the evening of Friday (about 11:00 PM for me), I received
the 43d request (with me, we were therefore 44), which was the request of a
couple... ! Thus : 43 montages, with me 44, for 45 people ! The number of
requests was therefore not the number of people!
That is again a lesson for
me : I must learn to ask precise questions... ;-)
The montage has been requested from following countries : USA, Canada, India,
Nepal, Brazil, Russia, France, Italy, Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Spain,
United Kingdom (& Ulster), Australia... and certainly from other countries
which I could not guess from the e-mail-address or read in the message.
The First Trans-World Meditation (with this montage: Blessings from the
For the time of the meditation (following the good idea of Soni for a
common meditation), I had printed on the same page : on the left the montage
you know and on the right the 44/45 names and e-mail addresses of the
I had arranged in my living-room a little altar with the
photos of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother, a photo of the Samadhi in Pondicherry,
a little candle and a burning stick of Buthanese incense. A rose like those
Mother loved so much was in a vase.
I had read during the evening in
Satprem's book about Mother, the second volume (Mère: l'espèce
nouvelle) and I was full of her words.
Several minutes after 01h00 AM MET (= 00:30 AM GMT), I woke up my wife who was
sleeping and we went into the living-room.. At 01h20 AM MET (=00:30 AM GMT) on
this February 21, 1998 we sat down for the meditation, which was for me my
first trans-world-meditation (TWM) experience.
I hold the sheet with montage
and names in the hands, and after calling Sri Aurobindo and Mother for
protection, I have read all the names of the photo-recipients, added a thought
for the future ones, then I have visualized us all at the Samadhi and made a
japa with the Mantra of the Mother : Om Namo Bhaghavate.
Then I opened me
I won't tell every experience during this meditation, but suddenly at
one time I felt an large wave of energy which was hitting me frontal,
direct into the ajna chakra, bright like five hands one next another -
not like a light beam as usually. And at the same time I SAW for the first
time in my life a line of this soft bluish light, of which Sri Aurobindo
speaks in his Letters on Yoga (section Visions and symbols) as Sri Aurobindo's
color (or Krishna's color) and which Mother saw also on April 6, 1963
(according to Satprem, Agenda Vol 4, recorded on tape) and interpreted
as a 'contact'.
It was such a marvellous soft and shining pale blue , like a horizontal sunray
shining between two blacks clouds, that I forgot everything, but I had the time
to know with certitude : it was the blessing from the Mother.
It lasted I
don't know how long, and when I became aware again of the room and of my body,
my first thought was to send to everyone of you all around the world a little ray
of this bluish light.
Then suddenly all ceased, and I was totally cool-headed and awake in the room.
It was 01:50 AM MET (=00:50 AM GMT). All that had lasted half an hour....
At that precise moment my wife came out of her meditation, we did not speak,
and we went back to sleep.
This morning, she told me that she had seen a
yellow light surrounded by a blue one, then that suddenly she had seen the
visage of Satprem ! Maybe was he equally in meditation with us at the same time
I am very happy to have had this experience with you and I thank you for it.
May the Light of Sri Aurobindo and the Love of the Mother eternally stay with
