During the movie The Mother recites a passage from Sri Aurobindo’s Thoughts and Glimpse:
“Death is the question nature puts continually to life and her reminder to it that is has not yet found itself.
If there were no siege of death, the creature would be bound for ever in the form of an imperfect living. Pursued by death she awakes to the idea of perfect life and seeks out its means and its possibility.”
