The Divine Mother of Sri Aurobindo’s teachings and the Tantric tradition is considered to be the Supreme Intelligence that resides behind matter and beyond everything.
The Divine Mother is also associated with the Sanskrit term shakti, which is considered to be the active force and the power of the Divine, and it is regarded as a feminine principle. Shakti and, thus, the Divine Mother, are considered to be manifest in all things.
Sri Aurobindo taught that the Divine Mother’s movement is impossible to follow because she dominates all existence and is one consciousness, but with many sides. She mediates between the divinity of Nature and the individual human personality. She is the link between the creation of all in the universe and the magnificence of the Supreme.
It is said that the Divine Mother embodies deep love and kindness, but can also use divine violence to strike human beings awake or to destroy obstacles one creates to prevent oneself from leading a spiritual life. She is also considered to be the soul and inner beauty of all that is created.
Practicing Integral yoga, or a more feminine-focused form of yoga such as Goddess yoga, can help the individual understand and connect with the Divine Mother.
