Recorded by Satprem, a disciple of the Mother, in the course of numerous personal conversations with her, Mother's Agenda is the complete logbook of her exploration in the cellular consciousness of the human body. It covers 23 years of experiences which parallel some of the most recent theories of modern physics, and are perhaps the key to man's passage to the next species.
This 6,OOO-page work in 13 volumes represents the day-to-day account over 22 years(1951-1973 ) of Mother's exploration into the body consciousness and her discovery of a "cellular mind", capable of restructuring the nature of the body and the laws of the species as drastically as, one day, the first stammerings of a "thinking mind" transformed the nature of the ape. It is a timely document of experimental evolution, involving a revolution in consciousness that alters the laws of the species. Whatever the appearances, we are not at the end of a civilisation but at the end of an evolutionary cycle. Are we going to find the passage to the next species, or perish? As scrupulously as a scientist in his laboratory, Mother goes back to the origin of matter's formation, to the primordial code, and there, 'by chance', stumbles upon the mechanism of death - upon the very power that changes death - and upon a 'new' Energy which curiously parallels the most recent theories on the subatomic nature of Matter. The key to Matter contains the key to death ... as well as the key to the next species.
Before dying falsehood rises in full swing. Still, people only understand the lesson of catastrophe. Will it have to happen for them to open their eyes?"
This is the year of Watergate, Nixon's first trip to China, the murder of the Israeli athletes in Munich, the first oil embargo. It is Mother's last path. A path strewn with heartrending little cries and staggering visions. The end of one world, the beginning of another ... if we wish, and even if we don't. "Sometimes it's so new and unexpected that it's almost painful." And Satprem asks her, "But is it a state outside matter?" "No, I am not going out of this material life, but ... it appears different. But it's curious. And it's physical; that's what is extraordinary! As if the physical had become double... A new state in matter. And ruled by something other than the sun, I don't know by what... I am touching upon another world. Another way of being ... dangerous, but wonderful." Satprem intently listened to her increasingly halting breath as she gasped for air - a breath that seemed to come from another side of the world: "There's no difference between life and death. This is neither life nor death; it's ... something. You see, it isn't that death disappears; both are changing into ... something one doesn't yet know, which seems both extremely dangerous and absolutely marvelous." What if "death" were only the other, material side of our human bowl, a sunny shore for a forthcoming species? A new state on both sides of the world in which both life and death change into ... something else? "I am walking a very thin and narrow line..." And then this cry, this entreaty: "Let me do the work!"
On November 17, 1973, she passed away - why?
The Mother born in Paris on February 21, 1878, in a very materialistic, well-to-do family, she completed a thorough education in music, painting and higher mathematics. A student of the French painter Gustave Moreau, she knew well the great Impressionist artists of the time. She later became acquainted with Max Théon, an enigmatic character with extraordinary occult powers who, for the first time, gave her a rational explanation of the spontaneous experiences she had had since her childhood. He taught her occultism during two long visits to his estate in Algeria. In 1914, she visited the French colonial city of Pondicherry in India, where she met Sri Aurobindo, who had sought refuge there from the British. She returned permanently to Pondicherry in 1920 via Japan and China. When Sri Aurobindo withdrew to his room in 1926 to work out a new power of evolution in matter, she organized and developed his Ashram, and tried in vain to awaken the disciples to a new consciousness. In 1958, after Sri Aurobindo's departure, she in turn withdrew to her room to grapple with the Problem -- the change in the cells' consciousness: the great Opening. From 1958 to 1973, she slowly uncovered the Great Passage to the next species and a new mode of life in matter, and narrated her extraordinary exploration to Satprem. This is the Agenda.
