Ever since 1908, Mother’s Day has been celebrated in the United States as a holiday. While the holiday is primarily associated with Mothers, the original impulse also had a motivation of Peace. This is an excerpt from Wikipedia about the origins of Mother’s Day:
“Ward Howe had made her Mother’s Day Proclamation in 1870, which called upon mothers of all nationalities to band together to promote the “amicable settlement of international questions, the great and general interests of peace.”Wikipedia “Mother’s Day”
Agni Yoga is one stream of several spiritual Teachings which continues to inspire the work of Meditation Mount. In this time of dramatic change on planet Earth, it is useful to reference what Agni Yoga’s Founder, Helena Roerich, has written about the role of Woman in her book:
“In the hands of woman lies the salvation of humanity and of our planet. Woman must realize her significance, the great mission of the Mother of the World; she should be prepared to take responsibility for the destiny of humanity.” (1 March 1929)
“The approaching new epoch is closely connected with the ascendancy of woman. As in the best days of humanity, the future epoch will again offer woman her rightful place alongside her eternal fellow traveler and co-worker, man. You must remember that the grandeur of the Cosmos is built by the dual Origin.”Letters of Helena Roerich Volume I: 1929-1935
