I may say that by the very fact that you live upon earth at this moment… you absorb with the air that you breathe this new supramental substance which is spreading in earth’s atmosphere and it is preparing in you things you will manifest all of a sudden, as soon as you have taken the decisive step.
Whether that will help you or not to take this decisive step is another question which has to be studied, because the experiences that are happening and will now happen more and more being of a quite new character, one cannot know beforehand what will come to pass; one must study and after a close study one would be able to say with certainty whether this supramental substance will make the work of the new birth easy or not. I shall tell you about it a little later on. For the moment it is better not to count on these things, but simply to take to the way for the birth into the spiritual life.
- The Mother
An experience of Syed Mehdi Imam on 29th Feb 1956 - Golden Day
Syed Mehdi Imam has recalled his ineffable experience at the time and how he had also compared notes with the Mother herself. According to his testimony, he had been invaded and possessed in his room in Golconde on the golden day some hours after he had returned to it from the Balcony darshan in the morning:
“I was alone in the room… I was in unconscious trance…. But nearing 1 p.m., I heard a rustle in the room. I became conscious of six dark forms looking at me with intensity to disturb the experience…. Thereupon in trance I turned towards the upper air which was radiant. It was brighter than the blaze of the Sun. In the radiancy were twelve illuminated forms. They were angels of the light guarding the supramental experience…. Twelve luminous ministers of the light swooped upon the asuric forces which suddenly disappeared. I awoke with a shock”.
In the afternoon he met the Mother and told her about his experience, and she assured him of its authenticity.
