Kahlil Gibran about Mother

gibran_ Mother as lioness1
This is Kahlil Gibran’s painting of his own mother.


 This is a portrait of my mother’s soul. The soul is there, the simple majesty.

Ninety per cent of my character and inclinations were inherited from my mother

not that I can match her sweetness, gentleness and magnanimity.

– Kahlil Gibran (poet, artist, realized soul).

(Note the famous Assyrian relief from the palace of Nineveh seen behind Kahlil Gibran’s mother is of the wounded lioness, projecting in Kahlil Gibran’s vision the immense strength, power of sacrifice and fearless protectiveness that resides in a Mother’s heart.  Kahlil Gibran is a realized soul – meaning that his Kundalini energy was fully awakened, flowing beyond his crown chakra, thus connecting him to the universal consciousnesses and pure knowledge.  Let’s observe how his mother’s hands are placed on the centre heart chakra aspect. We know from sahaja yoga that the centre heart chakra is bestowing the powers and qualities of courage, fearless, compassion expressed by the sacred heart.

Kahlil Gibran about Mother

“The most beautiful word on the lips of mankind is the word `Mother,’ and the most beautiful call is the call of  My Mother.

It is a word full of hope and love, a sweet and kind word coming from the depths of the heart.

The Mother is everything-

she is our consolation in sorrow,

our hope in misery,

and our strength in weakness.

She is the source of love, mercy, sympathy and forgiveness.

He who loses his mother loses a pure soul who blesses and guards him constantly..

Every thing in nature bespeaks the Mother.

And the Mother,

the prototype of all existence,

is the eternal spirit, full of beauty and love..

The word mother is hidden in our hearts,

and it comes upon our lips in hours of sorrow and happiness as the perfume comes from the heart of the rose and mingles with clear and cloudy air.” (Kahlil Gibran)

 Pure (Sahaj) Knowledge as Mother 


Kahlil Gibran says:

“Knowledge of the Self is the Mother of all knowledge.

So it is incumbent on me to know my Self,

to know it completely, to know its minutiae,

its characteristics, its subtleties, and its very atoms.”

(Kahlil Gibran seems that is speaking about Kundalini energy, as any sahaja yogi can easily recognize the specific qualities mentioned in the above quote; don’t you say?!)

      Mother is the heart…
      And Gibran’s work truly emanates from feelings of the heart…
      Through the experience of his mother

      I only realized the beauty of those feelings of mother…
      upon reading Gibran’s…
      “The Prophet”

      It is a wonderful Book…
      From the heart.

        Dear Arie, I love The Prophet – i used to offer it as a gift to all my friends in my university years ; started to do the same here in Canada where Gibran is still not as well known as he deserves 🙂

    Kahlil Gibran knew how to express a deep reality with simple words ; his natural sense of beauty is one of the best example for a Yogi. When he talks of a mother, it becomes an hymn to the universal Mother.

  5. Sahaj

    As we know the biological beginning of life is only possible with help of a mother, similarly the spiritual journey and redemption has to be done by only a mother. I am thankful to the motherhood for my existence and paving my path ahead. Happy Mother’s Day!
