As expounded in all ancient traditions and as is increasingly being rediscovered by modern medical research, the physical body is the gross material expression of a more subtle body.
The body is surrounded by a nervous envelope through which disease must first penetrate before affecting the physical body.
This book spells out in the words of the Mother the secret inner causes of health and disease. The methods of mastering the body's functioning in the light of a deeper knowledge of the subtler levels influencing the physical are expressed in direct, lucid language.
About the Author:
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 Puducherry 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.
