      April 8 celebrates the birth of Sri Chinmoy's mother Yogamaya (April 8, 1894 – March 16, 1944). She lived for only 49 years, passing away when her youngest son was just 12 years old.

      While at the Sri Aurobindo Ashram, an orphan boy penned a moving account of the last day of his mother's life on earth.

      Sri Chinmoy Reflections has published a faithful transcription of the original document, which was typed by the author. Written in highly formal English, a now antiquated style that was favoured by Sri Aurobindo and the glittering literati of the Ashram at the time, the language is full of classical allusions, providing an evocative glimpse into a bygone era. It shows a young boy searching for a new way to express his love for his mother, who always remained dearest to him.
