The Mother

to Prithwi Singh

Correspondence (1933-1967)

24 May 1937

Sri Aurobindo

Prithwi Singh1

We have received the Rs. 100 through Mahendranath and the stamps enclosed in the letter and the closing accounts; the Gita index also. It is very satisfying to have closed so well the work you undertook for the Mother in connection with Dilip's houses overcoming all difficulties and ending in such a satisfactory result. It has enabled Mother to commence the realisation of a large project2 for the Asram which she had to keep in abeyance for years. But your work for the Mother is always sure to be the same, thorough, conscientious and skilful and inspired by a firm faith and openness to her force; where these things are success is always sure.

As for the two dreams you wrote about in your shorter letter of the 1st May, the one about the horse is not so clear as the other about the white calf. But the horse is always the symbol of Power; it must be then a Power which you were trying to catch and make your own while sometimes it was trying to come up with you, perhaps to use you. This is what happens in the vital where there are these uncertain and elusive movements. The high platform was evidently the level of a higher Consciousness which stilled this fluctuating movement and made control of the Power more possible, as it became still and near.

The white calf is the sign of a pure and clear consciousness, the cow or calf being the symbol of Light in the Consciousness, something psychic or spiritual that you felt natural and intimate to you and inseparable.

As we have only just received the Gita index, it is not possible to write about it in this letter as I shall need to look at it more closely.

I hope, that Sujata and all are well now and yourself also. The Mother sends you her love and blessings.
