The Center

The purpose of individual existence is the joy of discovering the Divine and uniting with Him. When one has understood this, then one is ready to gain the strength to surmount all difficulties“. – The Mother

The Sri Aurobindo Center of Los Angeles was founded in 1953 by Jyotipriya, a direct disciple of the Mother and Sri Aurobindo. The Center enshrines the sacred relics of Sri Aurobindo which serves as a living fount of inspiration, and sustains and fosters the connection to the Divine of all who have gathered around it in a spiritual commune. The engagement with the Center has a singular purpose: it is an offering of ourselves with an aspiration to reveal and express the veiled Divinity within. The program offerings include all Darshan programs, a New-year program that includes children, weekly work-offerings at the Center, thrice-weekly collective Sadhana over Zoom, and Bi-annual retreats.

We host seekers for extended stays at the Center who wish to stay in the concentrated and soul-nurturing atmosphere of the relics of Sri Aurobindo, and be a part of a spiritual community. We regularly receive devotees who wish to meditate in the relics room and/or offer work to the Center. Being in the presence of the relics powerfully reinforces one’s bond to the Divine.  Once or twice a year the Center will feature talks or lectures.

We put out two newsletters: “Quest”, which comes out monthly,  and “Sadhana of the Body” quarterly. Both feature selections from the works of the Mother and Sri Aurobindo. There is also a podcast of the writings of the Mother and Sri Aurobindo.

We offer a library, a meditation room, sale of books, a gift shop with incense, handicraft, and other miscellaneous items for sale.

The Mother wrote “Only one thing is important, it is to find the Divine. The true purpose of life―to live for the Divine, or to live for the Truth, or at least to live for one’s soul.”.  Our life is a  journey towards the Divine; the Center is an intimate companion in this journey, a guiding light and protecting Presence.
