Book Description

Over the years the stories sadhaks told me of their contact with Sri Aurobindo and the Mother made a great impact upon me. Inspired by the sweetness of some of the stories I heard from old disciples I embarked on a voyage of discovery and collected 360 of them which I thought should be brought out in book-form.

As these stories have been narrated from memory which is not infallible, the words of the Mother and Sri Aurobindo may be only approximations; but every effort has been made to preserve their sense faithfully. Personal names have been mostly withheld, and even the initials used do not correspond to those of the persons concerned. All the material in the book has been written by me, after gathering information, except for a few pieces which run in the very words of those who have given their reminiscences. A few of these stories have appeared in Mother India and some others here and there, but most of them are being published here for the first time.

I am deeply grateful to K. D. Sethna, editor of Mother India, without whose constant help and untiring editing, supervision and encouragement this book would not have been possible. My thanks also to Shraddhavan who helped to prepare the manuscript for the press and made many useful suggestions. Finally, I must thank all those who shared their sacred memories with me. I am grateful to my sister, Smt. Raka, whose generosity made the publication of this book possible. My grateful Parham’s to the Mother and Sri Aurobindo.


This is a collection of stories remembered and told by the Mother's children, about their experiences with her and Sri Aurobindo. It is a humble attempt to record some incidents of the divine lila-a few drops from the inexhaustible ocean of love that the Mother and Sri Aurobindo were. Their infinite compassion, their incessant self-giving and self-sacrifice are beyond human comprehension each step taken by them is etched deeply on the breast of Time The Truth Vibration of each word spoken by them continues to reverberate throughout the universe. As the Mother herself said, whatever I do, the least gesture, whatever I say or utter has a stupendous effect in the other world. The vibrations that come out of me become realities above. And you will be surprised to see the work I have accomplished for you all. For each one his own path, well-shaped, well chiselled with all the obstacles, all the impediments removed, all that was blocking the way demolished, so that you may be able to walk freely in the full light of the new consciousness, towards the truth."

Now that Sri Aurobindo and the Mother are no longer physically present among us, these stories may help to make them Vivid and bring them nearer to the reader.
