This book contains a selection of the Mother’s conversations that belong to two distinct groups. During the first period, from 1929 to 1931, the Mother spoke informally with a small group of Ashramites who met her every week, answering questions about life and Yoga. During the second, from 1950 to 1958, she spoke to a larger audience, the Ashramites and students who attended her evening classes at the Ashram playground. The topics range from the spiritually elevated and philosophically complex to the practical and mundane. The conversations, which cover a broad variety of subjects in considerable depth, taking up many issues that are rarely treated elsewhere, offer an uplifting vision of human existence. In the Mother’s view, we are destined to outgrow our limited egocentric personalities, discover our true selves, and ultimately create a divine life on earth.
