This book contains letters of the Mother to members of the Sri Aurobindo Ashram. They cover the period from 1932 to 1973. The correspondents include a thirteen-year old boy, a French woman who lived in the Ashram for several years, a young physical-education instructor, and three Ashram members who often sought advice about problems relating to work.
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.
