PREFACE   A learned professor once told us in a lecture, "If I do not understand a subject, I write a book about it." This is certainly a good method in the field of academe, but it has only a limited validity in the spiritual field where many a truth may elude the seeker during his whole life. How much more do we become conscious of our limitations if we write about a cosmic personality such as the Mother! And yet it is not a vain task, for even if we may not comprehend Her being in its totality, we can yet receive here and there, by intuition, a ray of light from Her immense Sun.   In order to give a safe foundation to the book

III. PARIS AND TLEMCEN (1905-12)         The Mother's high inner realization and spiritual radiance soon attracted towards her many seekers.

XVIII. THE MOTHER LEAVES HER BODY         We have already referred in the Introduction to the suffering which the Mother took upon herself for mankind, since her body was, through its identification with earth-consciousness, like a nucleus of this world and had an ineluctable interrelationship with it. The 'world' at the present stage is still dominated by forces of Falsehood which resist transformation, since a new order according to the laws of evolution of consciousness would entail the fall and decline of all those whose outer position in life is entirely disproportionate to their inner qualification.         Perhaps it was these resistances in the world or obstacles deep in the ma
