The Mother emphasises that peace is essential in order to become receptive to the descent of divine force, light and inspiration.
These letters and conversations of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother remind us of the complexity of the being and guide us on how to work upon the parts of the being which are less open to the Divine. They also highlight the ways in which an inner poise of peace and calm prepares a sadhak to meet adverse forces on the path.
The Mother traces the differentiation between masculine and feminine genders to the way the primordial cause of creation of the universe has been explained in many ancient traditions. She adds that both men and women are in several ways enslaved to each other. And to deal with the problem of superiority and inferiority, one must must free oneself from all the inner enslavement and treat both the genders with perfect equality.
