The Mother: Selected Photos
Look Inside the Book
Description
Foreword

This book is focusing more or less exclusively on one particular element: The expression of the Mother and the vibration that is radiated by her physical appearance.

When the Mother left her physical body in 1973 she left behind a number of treasures: Her teachings, the concept of Auroville, the Matrimandir, and maybe some others which are invisible, but no less significant.

One of the jewels which we have inherited is the collection of 12,000 photos of her. Depending on how open we are, these may enable us to catch some of the vibrations which she carried and expressed. They may open for us a window into a world different from the world projected by our present state of mind.

For this we found it helpful to present the selection of her photos in a rather un- usual manner: No chronology in the selection of pictures, no selection according to themes or any other system, which would have given the mind an opportunity to creep into our contemplation of them.

On the aesthetic level we have had the courage to refrain from touching up the pictures or repairing them. Initially we were trying to repair some of the photos, but we found that with every correction the forceful expression of the pictures was diminishing. Though the aesthetic improvements were pleasing, the pictures were losing their strength and depth. We therefore made it a design-element of this book that you find here (wherever it was possible) original, untouched photos. Where both options were available, we chose the original, however many defects it might have had. Even some pictures with low resolution or which are on the dark side have found their way into this book, for they offer an originality that carries a strong vibration.

Hermann Hesse once said, "It is not important what a book contains. It is important what the reader can extract from it." This holds true for this book more than for any other. All depends on one's own capacity to find that special dimension which is behind the pictures.
