Rare indeed are the mahatmas (great souls) endowed with the vision of seeing the entire universe within the Atman (Self ), and the Atman within the universe. Even if they are recognized, they may not be inclined to communicate with us or counsel us, immersed as they are in the eternal silence of the Self. Therefore, it is our great fortune when a fully realized mahatma is ready to advise and discipline us with the tender love of a mother, and the inexplicable compassion of a guru. Throughout the world today, the darshan and the nectarous words of Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi are effecting transformations in the lives of hundreds of thousands of people. This book, though incomplete, is a precious collection of conversations between the Holy Mother and Her disciples, devotees, and inquiring visitors during the period from June 1985 to September 1986.The wisdom of the mahatmas, who have come with the mission of uplifting the world, has both immediate and eternal meaning. Even though they elucidate values that are everlasting, they are attuned to the call of the times in which they live, and their words are in response to the heartbeat of their listeners. Mother speaks Her immortal words, which transform society, at a time when man has lost his traditional values, nobler sentiments, and peace of mind in the frenzied attempt to reinforce the outer world of sensory pleasures, power, and prestige. Man's senseless pursuit of these distractions, while he remains oblivious of his own Self, has cost him the harmony and graciousness of his life. Lack of faith, fear, and a sense of competition has destroyed personal ties and family relations. Love has become no more than a mirage in a culture of exces-sive consumerism. Selfless love of God gives way to a form of devotion that is driven entirely by desires. Man gives undue importance to an intellect that seeks the yield of immediate profit, while discard-ing the lasting glory promised by true wisdom. Lofty spiritual principles and noble experiences do not shine in the lives of the people, but are confined to mere words. It is at such a juncture that Mother speaks to us in a language of untainted devotion, a language of the heart, of wisdom, and of the love that is Her entire life. Her ambrosial words have both an immediate and eternal relevance.
