By Mirra Alfassa. An incredible volume sharing the significance of flowers on the spiritual body. While Wild Taproot is not at all affiliated with The Mother or Sri Aurobindu, we wholly appreciate the spiritual nature of flowers and its effect on our bodies. If flower essences or the spiritual essence of plants interests you, you will absolutely delight in this book.
Book original description:
“Flowers have a very special place in the life of men, and perhaps more so in the life of the devotees of Sri Aurobindo and The Mother. In the Ashram, the Mother used flowers as a help to the Sadhaks in their Sadhana. I give you flowers, she once told to a sadhak, so that you may develop the Divine qualities they symbolize.
In this book more than eight hundred flowers have been given by their botanical names along with their spiritual names and significances as revealed by the Mother.
Almost each page of this book contains select passages from the writings of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother which help the readers to a deeper understanding of the silent messages of this beautiful creation of the nature.
Though primarily a book of the Mother, Sri Aurobindo’s touch is invariably felt since the spiritual significances of the flowers correspond to his incisive psychological analysis of the different planes of human consciousness and parts of the being.
Beautifully produced, this unique book is a gracious benediction of the Mother and will be cherished as a treasure by all who love flowers.”
