The conversations in this volume were spoken in French and appear here in an English translation. They were selected from the large body of conversations that the Mother called l’Agenda. These selections were seen, approved and occasionally revised by the Mother for publication in the quarterly Bulletin of Sri Aurobindo International Centre of Education; they came out regularly from February 1965 to April 1973 under the titles “Notes on the Way” and “A Propos” in the original French with English translations. The same translations, with minor revisions, were published in 1980 as Notes on the Way, Volume 11 of the Collected Works of the Mother (first edition). The text of this second edition (2002) is the same as that of the first, apart from a few minor revisions of the translations.
