Description
From the Jacket:

Scholar, poet, political and revolutionary leader, philosopher and social theorist, yogi and spiritual leader, Sri Aurobindo (1872 - 1950) is one of the most important figures of twentieth-century India. This is a selection from his major works as well as letters and some lesser known pieces. It includes writings covering more than fifty years (1893 - 1950) of his life. There is also a general introduction giving an overview of Sri Aurobindo's life and works as well as extensive critical apparatus.

As the only collection of Sri Aurobindo's writings that gives a balanced coverage of the different phases and aspects of his concerns, this volume will interest students of Indian history, Philosophy and literature, as well as spiritual seekers.

Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India.
