Book Description

Compiler's Note

These stories are not just stories, they are revelations of living truths conveyed to us by the Mother. Apart from one or two, the stories have been culled from her "Questions and Answers", the English translation of her "Entretiens" in French.

These anecdotes were first published in French in 1994 under the title "La Mere Raconte". Now, at the beginning of a new millennium, we are happy to publish an English version of them. If they bring the reader closer to the Mother, their purpose will be well served.

With love and gratitude for all she has given us-and is still giving -we offer this work at her feet.
