Description

Mirra - Sri Aurobindo is book four in Mother's Chronicles. After having thoroughly explored the world of occult knowledge with the help of Max Theon, and seen the limitations of that dangerous world, Mirra now sets out on a voyage to the East. What lies at the end? Or rather 'who' Sri Aurobindo. This book glances at the backdrop - India of the ancient times - where Sri Aurobindo was born, and traces his growth in England, where he could see the limitations of modern times.

Who is Mother?
I can hear you, dear Reader, wondering. You ask, “What is so interesting in the story of Mother?”

Let me ask you: Do you like thrillers that take you hunting for the hidden treasure? Do you like historical novels that take you back in time? Do you like space odysseys that take you forward in time? Do you like science fiction stories that break all bounds of space and time? Do you like scientific discoveries in which scientists painstakingly gather proof after proof and note meticulously their findings? Do you like the story of evolution? Evolution that never stops, evolution that has produced you and me-mankind. And finally, who does not like love stories, love so fierce and absolute that it descends into inferno and confronts death in order to retrieve the beloved?

Dear reader, if you like any or many or all of these things, then come with me. Let us walk together in Mother’s Geography and find out.

Then, perhaps, we shall know: Who is Mother.
