Say it with flowers

Korean version

The universal adage 'Say it with flowers' has in Auroville an extra meaning. As the Mother often used to communicate through flowers, we inherited from her a list with the occult meanings and descriptions she sensed in them, and their messages as well. It has become a lovely game to express oneself this way, and Aurovilians amply use it, among each other, when choosing the contents of their gardens, when finding a surprise flower on their doorstep..

Some samples of Mother's flower messages:

Please, note that of one variety various meanings and messages have been given by the Mother, depending on the flower's size, colours and other propensities. See 'Flowers and their Messages'.
