Sri Aurobindo For All Ages
Sri Aurobindo For All Ages
Description
Back of the book

This biography is written by a disciple who had the great privilege of serving Sri Aurobindo for twelve year as his literary secretary and before this, of carrying on a long correspondence with him. During the years 1938-1950 Sri Aurobindo’s attandants used to speak with him on various general topics, and many interesting anecdotes and experiences culled from both the talks and the letters give a unique flavor, an intimate feel to his book. It is sprinkled throughout with homour and personal touches which bring to the reader a very living contact.

 

Foreword

There are biographies and biographies: each one has its particular value, its particular viewpoint. This new biography stands apart from all other books on Sri Aurobindo’s Life, its first distinctive feature being that it is written for the young generation, for whom it was a long felt need. And its other special value lies in the fact that it is written by a disciple who had the great privilege of serving Sri Aurobindo for twelve years as his literary secretary and, before this, of carrying on a long correspondence with him. During the years 1938-1950 Sri Aurobindo’s attendants used to speak with him on various general topics, and many interesting anecdotes and experiences culled from both the talks and the letters give a unique flavor, an intimate feel to this book. It is sprinkled throughout with humour and personal touches which bring to the reader a very living contact.

The author had originally made a draft; he gave it to a close friend of his, Ashit Gupta, who was a professor of English in the Centre of Education, to rewrite it in his practiced English style. Ashit Gupta took up the work very gladly even though he was suffering from a debilitating illness. Day after day, for nearly fourteen months, he took infinite trouble, carried out an exhaustive research of all available facts and rewrote the entire book, making it a true piece of art. But unfortunately he passed away before he could give the finishing touch to the last two chapters.

The book is written in a simple yet noble style; it preserves the intention of the author, that of a personal narration which gives it a special charm.

This is why the book claims distinction from the other biographies of Sri Aurobindo, often more scholarly and less intimate.

I love antique brass pieces and your site is the best. Not only can I browse through it but can purchase very easily.
Indira, USA
Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt

Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
