Publisher’s Note

This book contains facsimiles of 178 sayings chosen by the Mother and written in her hand. Thirty-seven of them are words of her own, mainly sentences from her Prayers and Meditations. Twenty-three are statements taken from the writings of Sri Aurobindo. The remaining 118 were gleaned from the world’s scriptures and from the works of various thinkers and sages of the East and West. The first entry in the book is Aurobindo’s neatly penned transcription of a letter first written on an earlier occasion.

The genesis of the book is this: In the fall of 1934, a young man asked the Mother if she would write one sentence a day to him. When she agreed to do so, he presented her with a bound notebook in which to write. By filling up one page a day, the Mother completed the notebook in the course of six months. That handwritten book is now – fifty years later-being reproduced for a wider audience.
