About The Mother: A Short Biography
Sri Aurobindo, in his most famous short work 'The Mother', wrote: "The One whom we adore as the Mother is the divine Conscious Force that dominates all existence, one and yet so many sided that to follow her movement is impossible even for the quickest mind and for the freest and most vast intelligence. The Mother is the consciousness and force of the Supreme..." When asked, "Do you not refer to the Mother (the Mother of the Sri Aurobindo Ashram) in your book 'The Mother'?" he answered "Yes". Replying to disciples about her manifestation and embodiment Sri Aurobindo wrote: "The Divine puts on an appearance of humanity, assumes the outward human nature in order to tread the path and show it to human beings", and again: "Her embodiment is a chance for the earth-consciousness to receive the Supramental into it." This book narrates many events in the Mother's life mostly from her autobiographical statements and helps the reader to discover the timeless, ever-present Mother, her power and her love and her work of the supramental transformation.
