THE MOTHER'S LIFE AND WORKS

Born in Paris in 1878, the Mother studied painting at an art studio and became an accomplished artist. Primarily interested in inner development, she was associated with several groups of spiritual seekers in France. In 1914 she journeyed to India to meet the Indian mystic Sri Aurobindo in Pondicherry and settled there permanently in 1920. For nearly fifty years, she was the head of the Sri Aurobindo Ashram, from its founding in 1926 until her passing in 1973. She also established a school, the Sri Aurobindo International Centre of Education, in 1952, and an international township, Auroville, in 1968.


The new edition
commemorates
the Mother's
125th birth anniversary

In these writings and conversations, the Mother offers an uplifting vision of life and the promise of a luminous future. Drawing upon her wide occult, spiritual and practical experience, she explains the purpose of our life on earth, the Divine's way of working in the world, the reason for our sorrows and struggles and the way to deal with them. In simple and direct language she speaks of the qualities needed to make inner progress, relate well with others, work effectively and lead a dedicated spiritual life.
