From 1927, the Mother gave "names" or "significances" to certain flowers. Within a few years, she had given names to hundreds of flowers. A list compiled by an Ashram gardener in 1930 contained 410 entries. In 1953, a French sadhak edited the Ashram's first book on flowers, Le role des fleurs. This contained 636 significances. In the early 1970s, the Mother reviewed these significances, changing some of them, and added more than 240 new ones. At the same time she gave a brief comment on almost all the flowers. The result of this revision was Flowers and Their Messages, issued in 1973, which contained 889 significances. This photo-collection is mainly based on La Signification Spirituelle des Fleurs and The Spiritual Significance of Flowers (both books were issued in 2000).
