Sri Aurobindo: The Hour of God (Selections from his writings)
Sri Aurobindo: The Hour of God (Selections from his writings)
Description
From the Jacket:

Sri Aurobindo (1872-1950), a pioneer of India's freedom movement, poet, seer and the exponent of Integral Yoga, visualizes the possibility of humanity fulfilling its evolutionary destiny through a process of transformation. His remarkable works like The Life Divine, The Synthesis of Yoga, The Human Cycle and The Ideal of Human Unity present an analysis of history, both spiritual and chronological, and trace the process of the unfoldment of this Gnostic mystery, while his epic, Savitri, discovers to us the manifold occult realities beneath and above the life as we known it.

In compiling these pieces from the 30 volumes of Sri Aurobindo Birth Centenary Library, the principle that has guided the compiler is the need to present the Master's futuristic, spiritual and social vision. Although it is not an anthology of passages representing all the works of Sri Aurobindo, his reflections on aspects of culture and education have been included, along with a few poems, and the first Canto of Savitri.

This selection from his writings is primarily intended to introduce his profound vision to the reader.

About the Author:

Manoj Das (b. 1934), well known writer, recipient of the Sahitya Akademi Award, teaches English Literature at Sri Aurobindo International Centre of Education, Pondicherry.

I’ve received the package 2 days ago. The painting is as beautiful as I whished! I’m very interesting in history, art and culture of India and I’m studing his civilization; so I’ve visited Rajasthan, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and Kerala in theese years. I’m a draftwoman , so I like collect works of extraordinary arts and crafts of villages, that must be protected and helped. In a short time I’ll buy some others folk painting, as Madhubani , Kalamkari and – if it’s possible – Phad. In the meanwhile, I’m very happy to have in my home a work of your great artist. Namaste, Namaskara.
