In response to a request from All India Radio, Sri Aurobindo gave a message to mark 15 August 1947, the day of India’s independence. This message to his countrymen spoke of five dreams that he had worked for, and which he now saw on the way to fulfilment. The realisation of these dreams would mark the beginning of a new age, not only for India but for the entire world, “for the political, social, cultural and spiritual future of humanity”.

Letters on Yoga—III comprises letters written by Sri Aurobindo on the experiences and realisations that may occur in the practice of the Integral Yoga. It is the third of four volumes of Letters on Yoga. The letters in these volumes have been selected from the large body of letters that Sri Aurobindo wrote to disciples and others between 1927 and 1950, but primarily in the 1930s. A considerable number of them are being published for the first time.

This third volume is arranged by subject in four parts: the place of experiences in the practice of yoga, the opening of the inner senses, experiences of the inner consciousness and the cosmic consciousness, and the fundamental realisations of the Integral Yoga. Individual letters deal with many subjects relating to these themes, including the development of the inner vision, the nature of symbolic visions, becoming aware of the inner being and the witness attitude, the psychic and spiritual realisations, and the meaning of spiritual transformation.

The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) played a role in helping to establish Auroville in the eyes of the world as an experiment in promoting peace and human unity. This is a compilation of extracts from I am with you by Kailas Jhaveri, that relate to her work from 1965 to 1972, under the Mother’s guidance, with UNESCO and other organisations that could assist in the material realisation of Auroville. The book also includes facsimiles of the Mother’s handwritten messages to Kailas, images and extracts from The UNESCO Courier of 1972 regarding Auroville, extracts from Sri Aurobindo’s works, resolutions on Auroville passed by the General Assembly of UNESCO, and many photographs of Auroville life, especially in its early years.
