Born in Paris to wealthy parents, Mirra Alfassa’s spiritual quest brought her to India where she joined forces with Sri Aurobindo for the realisation of his vison for the future. She was the main force behind setting up of the Sri Aurobindo Ashram at Pondicherry, and while Sri Aurobindo was the guru, she became the ‘Mother’ to the inmates of the Ashram. their vision of a world populated by ‘Superconcious’ men is of special relevance today, when most of the civilized world, recoiling from the ‘progress glut’ is trying to remove the disharmonies it has inherited in the wake of technological advances. The benign fascinating personality of the Mother brought to life in all its vividness and complexity in this short biography was published on the eve of the Mother’s centenary on 21st February 1978.
