June 18, 1966 Why have men created such fixed things as languages? ... It's so deliberately narrow and limited. And I think that's what abolished in man the possibility of intuition, because ... He is forced to become so narrow in order to make himself understood. You feel you could be sitting in front of a genius and have no means to communicate, except like this (gesture above the head of a communication on a higher plane). They are wondering how to communicate with other solar systems.... But our very way of thinking stems from our form, it's because we count one-two-three-four-five with our fingers, so we say one-two-three-four-five. Others use other words, but if five Page 1

August 31, 1966 I gave you a very long speech quite early this morning: you were sleeping. Didn't you hear? What did you tell me! Oh, it was very long.... It wasn't personal. I told you how the true movement gets distorted, and I gave you examples. Very interesting examples because they don't look like much, but it's something fundamental, in the sense that that's how Truth is turned into falsehood. And it's so subtle that unless one has experienced it, mentally one cannot understand. What I explained to you was the experience, and there were two examples, which I told you in a very precise way ... now I don't remember the words. You don't remember? The words were of the

November 15, 1966 ... I am nonexistent. Tired? No, absolutely gone (gesture above). I realize it's absolutely useless to want anything and that nothing gets done.... Nonexistent. See the time, it's 10:45. I have given up. I am just a robot good for signing papers, that's all. Whether I want or don't want ... Of course, "I" stopped wanting long ago, but anyway, for me to express a necessity is absolutely useless. Absolutely. I am truly gone. Don't go away! Oh, it doesn't matter. This (Mother points to her body) is still here! You know, one thing upon another, one upon another, in every field: I see what must be and what is true, and everything, but everything, combine

April 9, 1966 (About the book Satprem is writing, "The Sannyasin") Page 81 I still see that vision I had. [[The vision of the Sannyasin with his back to a bronze door. See Agenda 1, November 20 and 22, 1958. ]] Strangely, it was one of the most unexpected visions, in the sense that I had no mental preparation: all of a sudden I saw that Sannyasin, with his back to a wall and a sort of hurricane approaching. It was a hurricane of noise, of clamor.... Nothing could be seen; nothing could be seen but the force of the vibrations coming up like a storm: he had his back to the wall, there was a sort of gale, and a chasm in front. And that vision of mine struck such a deep chord that e

December 7, 1966 (Mother hands Satprem a flower called "Grace," then a second "Grace.") Would you like a second Grace?... There's never too much of it! Oh, the other day someone asked me a question on the message for November 24,[["There are these three powers [governing life on earth]: (1) The Cosmic Law, of Karma or what else; (2) the Divine Compassion acting on as many as it can reach through the nets of the Law and giving them their chance; (3) the Divine Grace which acts more incalculably but also more irresistibly than the others." (Sri Aurobindo) ]] and Sri Aurobindo replied. It was so interesting! I saw something all of a sudden. While he was speaking it was absolutely ma

January 22, 1966 I saw Purani last night. It's the first time I have seen him since he went out of his body.[[Purani, a charming old disciple, who passed away on December 11, 1965. See Agenda VI, conversation of December 28, 1965, p. 341. ]] There were other people too. I saw him in a subtle physical world and he was all light blue and pink, and everything around him was pink and luminous (Mother makes a dancing gesture). He was pleased, oh, so pleased, he said, "Now I am happy!" (silence) Lots of preoccupations? No! This morning I lived for two hours in a sort of blissful state in which there was, oh, such a clear awareness that all forms of life, in all the worlds and at

June 8, 1966 (Regarding an old Talk of 19 April 1951 in which Mother said: "You seem to be on an inner hunt, you go hunting for the dark little corners.... You offer the difficulty, whether it is in yourself or in others, whatever the seat of its manifestation, to the Divine Consciousness, asking It to transform it.") That's precisely what I have been doing for two days! For the last two days I have spent all my time seeing all that ... oh, an accumulation of heaps of sordid little things we constantly live in, sordid tiny little things. And then, there is only one way - only one way, always the same: to offer it. This Supreme Consciousness almost seems to put you in contact with qui

August 3, 1966 Is there anything new? There was something that might interest you (Mother looks for a piece of paper). What interests me is what you are doing. What I ...? What you are doing. I am making discoveries, mon petit. When the mind is active, or rather, as long as the mind is active, when you have dedicated your life and are fully convinced that it's your only raison d'être, you tend to imagine that if you work for the Divine, the whole being participates, and if you aspire to progress, the whole being participates. You are satisfied once all contradiction has disappeared either in the vital or in the mind, and once everything is in agreement and harmonious. Y

M o t h e r's   A g e n d a   1966-11-12 November 12, 1966 Yesterday was Kali puja,[[ Kali represents the warrior aspect of the universal Mother. Ceremonies in honor of her take place every year around this time. ]] and in English I would say, She has been outspoken. In the afternoon, she expressed ... (laughing) her "view of things." She was displeased? (Mother nods her head) And it was amusing, because it wasn't just here, it wasn't just the earth, but it was a displeasure even at the way of acting of Nature's forces.... See this irony: yesterday morning I got a telegram - an S.O.S. from Bihar, telling me that they have no drinking water, they are in a dreadful condition of drought and deprivation, a

August 19, 1966 (Mother resumes her translation of the debate with Death.) Think not to plant on earth the living Truth That's just what I am doing, Sir. (turning to Satprem with a smile) Do you think he hears me? Think not to plant on earth the living Truth Or make of Matter's world the home of God; Truth comes not there but only the thought of Truth, God is not there but only the name of God. (X.IV.646) (Mother remains pensive) Basically, according to Sri Aurobindo, materialistic thought is the gospel of death. No? It's very interesting. (silence) That's basically the point. We say Savitri is an "epic"; so Savitri is the epic of the vic
