About the Author

Wilfried Huchzermeyer has studied Indology, Philosophy and Comarative Religion in Germany, the US and India. He completed his Sanskrit his Sanskrit studies at Pune University with a dissertation on the Mahabharata.

Between 1970 and 1985 he had many long stays at the Sri Aurobindo Ashram in Pondicherry. During this period he translated several major works of Sri Aurobindo, including the secret of the Veda and The Foundation of Indian culture.

In 1985 he wrote The Mother – A Short Biography, which became a very popular introduction, published in several languages. His Sanskrit-German reference books Yoga-Lexikon and Yoga Worterbuch have been widely recognized as standard works.

Preface

A long time ago while staying in the Sri Aurobindo Ashram, I happened to overhear a sadhak introducing a visitor on the basics of Integral Yoga after a while I caught the sentence, “Sri Aurobindo is Indian, but his viewpoint is Western.

This aphorism, enriched by a little play on words, outlines in an original way Sri Aurobindo’s spiritual philosophy. We envisage him standing firmly on the soil of Indian tradition, but enlarging his perspective with his dynamic and evolutionary approach and his full acceptance of life and matter. We would have to add that he has also rediscovered and revitalized some aspects of the Indian tradition, especially the ancient Vedic culture.

In his present’s biography, I intend to resent Sri Aurobindo’s life and works comprehensively and in detail, but none the less a selection had to be made in view of the voluminous material that is available. In this context, an important criterion was the assumed revere of the respective subjects for readers of our time. As for the interpretation, Sri Aurobindo has stated several has assumed relevance of the respective subjects for readers of our time. As for the interpretation, Sri Aurobindo has stated several times, it would be only myself who could speak of thing in my past, giving them their true form and significance. All the same, he has supposed researchers through a large number of clarifications regarding his life so that it does appear possible to write about him on a solid foundation.

All the references to Sri Aurobindo’s works are if not otherwise mentioned in the footnotes from the complete works of Sri Aurobindo whose pagination is only in some cases identical with the earlier standard edition of the Sri Aurobindo Ashram. Most titles of the complete works can be viewed on the Ashram website.

The Sri Aurobindo Ashram Trust has been kind enough to give permission to print the photo on the cover, and all the photos of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother. The same is the case with the photos of the Ashram, etc, unless specified otherwise in the captions.

In conclusion, I wish to thank all those who have helped in preparing this book through editing, proof-reading, photos and other contributions, and the Sri Aurobindo Ashram Trust for permission to quote from the Ashram literature and for the use of large number of photos made available with the kind support of the Ashram archives.

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
