About The Twelve Virtues of Mother

Regarding her symbol, the Mother wrote on 24th January 1958, “The central circle represents the Divine Consciousness. The four petals represent the four powers of the Mother. The twelve petals represent the twelve powers of the Mother manifested for Her work.”

“The four Powers of the Mother are four of her outstanding Personalities, portions and embodiments of her divinity through whom she acts on her creatures, orders and harmonises her creations in the worlds and directs the working out of her thousand forces...”, Sri Aurobindo wrote in “The Mother”.

In answer to a question on the twelve of her symbol, the Mother explained to her class on 10th November 1954: “It signifies anything one wants, you see. Twelve: that’s the number of Aditi, of Mahashakti. So it applies to everything; all her action has twelve aspects. There are also her twelve virtues, her twelve powers, her twelve aspects, and then her twelve planes of manifestation and many other things that are twelve; and the symbol, the number twelve is in itself a symbol. It is the symbol of manifestation, double perfection, in essence and in manifestation, in the creation.”

Years later, She further explained the importance of the number twelve and its relationship with the Mahashakti: “The twelve is the figure of the Mahashakti. It is the essential creation, the creation in its essence – the creative Power. And perfection, too: the perfection in the execution. The twelve is a very important figure. It’s an extremely important figure. Extremely important.”

And later She commented: “The first eight concern the attitude towards the Divine, and the last four towards humanity.”

The twelve petals of the Mother's symbol represent the twelve powers of the Mother manifested for Her work. For the each petal we have selected a flower with relevent spiritual name.
