About Mirra Alfassa - The Mother

Essays about the Mother written by the author over a period of fifteen years are collected in this volume, whose stated aim is to introduce the Mother and her work to a wider audience, outside the environs of the Ashram and Auroville communities and people associated with them. Starting with the biographical facts of her birth, her family, and her education, the essays then look more closely at how her early life prepared her for the work she undertook with Sri Aurobindo in India, her cultural background, her life in Paris and her training as an artist, her sojourn in Japan, her spiritual seeking, her literary and artistic works, her contribution to the field of education, and her spiritual collaboration with Sri Aurobindo.
