you fall ill. It will be for some other time.
Then there is "Apropos," then the "Notes On The Way"... I've wondered, Mother, if for February
21 we couldn't play a recording of what you said, for instance on the superman consciousness?

(Mother listens to the English translation of "Notes On The Way" for the coming Bulletin, then remarks
at the end:)
(Mother listens to the English translation of the conversation of February 15 - "These cells, other
cells, it was life everywhere, consciousness everywhere..." - for "Notes On The Way," then remarks in
(Soon afterwards, Satprem proposes to publish in "Notes On The Way" the text of the last conversation,
of May 31, about the glorified body "Visible to all.")
Mr. A.R. asked me if I had finished reading the "Notes On The Way" again. As for me, I asked
him if he had found something after his studies of these last two days. Then there was a stream

conversation of August 16 in which Mother spoke of the need to make a void and wait for the
One can't know. As for me, I am convinced that one can't know, that one must be like this (Mother
opens her hands upward). What I've said here [in the "Notes On The Way"] is true: one must be like
that, and then... let the Consciousness act through oneself.
(Then, regarding the forthcoming "Notes On The Way" in which Mother speaks of her experience of the
supramental Consciousness-the conversation of November 19.)
217When Satprem later published this part of the conversation in the "Notes On The Way," Mother added the following
comment: "In this Consciousness where the two contraries, the two opposites are joined, the nature of both changes. They

infirmity of our consciousness is what creates this division. Mother added that one has to learn to
disappear. Satprem had proposed the publication of a few extracts in the Notes On The Way.)
Is it the end?
(Satprem reads out the conversation of June 27 a very slight shift of consciousness which
Mother thought could be used for the Notes On The Way.)
Is that all? I said only this much?.... I thought I had said something interesting its not very
(Then Mother listens to the English translation of an extract from the infernal Agenda of September
9, which Satprem intended to publish in the forthcoming Notes On The Way. Nolini reads out his

January 23, 1971
(Mother sees Satprem regarding the English translation of the latest Notes On The Way for the next
Bulletin. After the work:)
(M.:) The chapters following The Sociology of the Superman: Afterwards and The
Conquest of Death, etc., vividly evoked for me what you say in Notes On The Way.
(Mother smiles) Yes, thats the yoga of the body.

108Notes On The Way of 28 August 1971, which is to appear in the next Bulletin.

(Soon afterwards, Satprem proposes to Mother the publication of a few brief extracts from the previous
and very interesting conversation on illnesses in "Notes On The Way," a new series started in the
Ashram's Bulletin on Satprem's insistence. In fact, Satprem wanted the Ashram to benefit a little from
the treasure of Mother's experience - at least a few drops of it. It was those "Notes On The Way" that
were, after Mother's departure, cooly and fraudulently renamed "Mother's Agenda" by the heads of the
of Mother's clear perception of the people around her and of the Ashram in general. Satprem
remembers how much he had to insist with Mother to be allowed to publish those "Notes On The Way."
Her reluctance is now easier to understand.)
I wondered if we couldn't use the last conversation for the next "Notes On The Way"?
It's unpublishable. It goes in the Agenda.
(Satprem returns to the attack and asks Mother for her permission to publish some of these
conversations in the "Notes On The Way":)
In the "Notes On The Way," there is a lot of pruning to be done.109

(The discussion goes on and Mother again wants to cut out the whole end of the conversation of
November 27 which Satprem wanted to publish in "Notes On The Way." It was about the double
movement of Oneness and Multiplicity.)

No, no, every time you add an element. It flows along quite well.
So you don't have anything that can be used for "Notes On The Way"?
Maybe. I'll have to look again. But I don't think so.
|Agenda_Vol_8, #The Mothers Agenda, #The Mother, #Integral Yoga|
(Then Mother listens to the English translation of the conversation of September 30, 1966, for the
"Notes On The Way." The subject was the disappearance of the bone structure in the new being and the
need for intermediary stages. Mother, speaking in English, turns to Nolini:)
(Nolini comes in to read Mother his English translation of "Notes On The Way" for the next Bulletin.)
I have been wondering about this: maybe if I didn't listen I'd hear quite clearly! (Nolini stares at
visible only in results far, far ahead), and not understood.
Not understood, of course... Someone, C., wanted to translate Notes On The Way and A Propos into
Hindi, in one volume. He spoke with R. about it, and R. wrote to me, "People don't understand
people quote to me what I said, or experiences they've had, explanations they give "in accordance with"
those Notes On The Way, and every time I see that they haven't understood ANYTHING.
So it seems to me to be a general incomprehension.
|Agenda_Vol_9, #The Mothers Agenda, #The Mother, #Integral Yoga|
We could do some translation.... Is the Bulletin ready?
Everything is ready, Mother, except the "Notes On The Way."
The "Notes," we'll leave them out.
There were a lot of things.
But it's no use, I can't give it [for the Notes On The Way].
I was very, very conscious while speaking, but it's difficult to express.
Yes, the "Notes On The Way" have helped them understand.
I have two things here. One, a bit sarcastic and brief, can be used as "Apropos" in the next Bulletin.
And I have others out of which, if you organize them, you can, I think, prepare the "Notes On The Way."
The "Apropos" is very brief (Satprem reads out):
are no more ordeals! Only the body needs them.
(Then Satprem reads Mother the "Notes On The Way" put together from the last conversation. Mother is
unsure whether publishing those experiences is appropriate.)
(Mother had Nolini called to ask him for his opinion about the conversation of August 28 and whether
it should be published in "Notes On The Way.")
(To Nolini) Have you read it? What's your opinion?
Pavitra read the "Notes On The Way" [conversation of August 28], I think he hasn't understood one bit
of it! Because yesterday he told me he'd read it, and he very sweetly said he was "asking for
There you are.
119Conversation of November 23. Through the "Notes On The Way" or otherwise Satprem always wanted to make Mother's
experience known to the Ashram, but did not at the time understand the reasons for her reluctance.
(Regarding the English translation of the conversation of November 23, 1968, which Satprem got
Mother to allow for publication in "Notes On The Way.")
People are going to be dazed!
