Aditi - The Mother. Aditi is the indivisible consciousness, force and Ananda of the Supreme; the Mother, its living dynamis, the supreme Love, Wisdom, Power.

She is the golden bridge, the wonderful fire.
The luminous heart of the unknown is she,
A power of silence in the depths of God;
She is the force the inevitable Word,
The magnet of our difficult ascent,
The Sun from which we kindle all our suns,
The light that leans from the unrealised Vasts,
The joy that beckons from the impossible,
The might of all that never yet came down.

The red lotus represents Sri Aurobindo, the white one represents me.
In a general way the lotus is the flower of the Divine Wisdom, whatever its colour. But red signifies the Avatar, the Divine incarnated in matter, and white signifies the Divine Consciousness manifested upon earth.

Aditi-the Divine Consciousness
Pure, immaculate, gloriously powerful.
