In this book, a collection of brief passages from conversations, the Mother talks about the qualities one must develop in order to grow inwardly and pursue a harmonious spiritual life. She also discusses the difficulties of the spiritual path and explains how to overcome one’s weaknesses, relate well with others and face the problems of daily life. Other subjects include money, health and work.

There are 231 passages in the book, arranged thematically in twenty-one chapters. A sketch of the Mother’s life and a glossary of terms have been provided at the end.

“There is always (it is probably inevitable) the path of struggle and then there is the sunlit path. And after much study and investigation, I have had a sort of spiritual ambition, if it may be called that, to bring to the world a sunlit path in order to eliminate the need for suffering and struggle…”
