2.3 The most important books for this theme
(concerning evolution and transformation)
1. The Manifestation of the Supramental, Sri Aurobindo, Pondicherry 1948
2. Mother’s Agenda from the years 1951 – 1973 (Editor: Satprem)
‘The Manifestation of the Supramental’ is Sri Aurobindo’s final work. It contains 93 pages ? and offers a profound insight into the possibilities of the future person.
Mother’s Agenda is a 13 volume work (about 5, 000 pages) which contains the conversations recorded on tape which The Mother held with Satprem in the years 1950 to 1973. In 1977 Agenda were first published in French. A translation in English and German followed.
Satprem published a summary of the Agenda with the title ‘Mutter – Notizen aus dem Labor (1950–1973). In Germany this is distributed by the publishers Hinder+Deelmann.
Mother’s Agenda represents the sole source of information which provides an answer to the question “how“ the sought-after goal can be reached. That publication was the first to make known that the path has to begin via the work on the physical body – and not as Sri Aurobindo supposed with the dawning of consciousness of a higher Mind and the psychic being.
So it is understandable that the knowledge of these facts only slowly percolated. In the German language, for instance, the volumes which are of especial importance in this respect covering the years 1967 to 1970 have only recently been made available.
