— Rod Hemsell
Available since 20-May-2015
Binding: Soft Cover
Pages: 346
Price: Rs 350

Comprising the transcriptions of two lecture series given at the University of Human Unity in Auroville, this book aims at discovering a philosophy of evolution that can help to show the way towards a more unified and enlightened civilisation. Part One, titled “Darwin and Sri Aurobindo”, uses Sri Aurobindo’s perspectives to provide a general context and background for an introduction to the subject of evolution from both the scientific and philosophical points of view. Part Two, titled “Mind and Supermind”, attempts to define mind, the limitations of mind, and the rationale for a theory of evolution beyond mind, based primarily on Sri Aurobindo’s philosophy, but including the views of important philosophical thinkers, classical and modern.

In 1968 the Mother began her work on Savitri with Huta. The Mother read out passages from the poem and then, after a deep contemplation, gave her comments, which were tape-recorded and later transcribed by Huta. The Mother named the work About Savitri, and later gave a message for the book: “Savitri—The supreme revelation of Sri Aurobindo’s vision”. Each passage from the poem is followed by the Mother’s explanation and Huta’s painting, inspired and approved by the Mother. Part One covers Book One, Canto One and includes thirty-two paintings. This is a new edition of the book which was first published in 1972.


cover Introduction to the Gita
— Sri Aurobindo
ISBN: 978-81-7058-978-5
Available since 14-May-2015
Binding: Soft Cover
Pages: 111
Price: Rs 70

The essays in this volume were originally written by Sri Aurobindo in Bengali and published serially in the journal Dharma in 1909–10. They discuss the elements pivotal to understanding the Gita: the breadth and significance of its setting, the nature of its chief protagonists, and the circumstances and political objectives that brought the Kauravas and the Pandavas to the battlefield. The essays point to the central teaching of the Gita, which answers man’s most searching questions about God and the world, the purpose of life, and the way to right living.

Binding: Soft Cover
Pages: 150
Price: Rs 300

This fifth volume of Dr Reddy’s transcribed and edited talks on Sri Aurobindo’s The Life Divine addresses the final five chapters of Book One: Omnipresent Reality and the Universe. In an effort to reach out to those less familiar with philosophic complexities, Dr Reddy uses simple language and examples to introduce the main philosophical arguments presented in these chapters. Subjects considered include the exact nature and origin of Matter, the unity of Spirit and Matter, the principles that govern the destiny of this creation, and the higher ranges of consciousness and their relation to each other. Each chapter studies the main arguments in brief and is followed by lecture notes that encapsulate the contents in outline form.


cover Letters on Yoga: Volume IV (New CWSA edition)
— Sri Aurobindo
ISBN: 978-81-7058-962-4
Available since 05-May-2015
Binding: Soft Cover
Pages: 820
Price: Rs 380

Letters on Yoga—IV contains letters of Sri Aurobindo on the transformation of human nature – mental, vital, and physical – through the practice of the Integral Yoga, and on the difficulties encountered along the way. It is the last volume of Letters on Yoga. Most of these letters were written by Sri Aurobindo in the 1930s to disciples living in his Ashram in Pondicherry. About one-third of the letters in the present volume were not published in the Sri Aurobindo Birth Centenary Library.

This fourth volume is arranged by subject in four parts. The first covers sadhana on the level of the mind (mental difficulties, cultivation of the mind, power of expression, and speech), and is followed by sadhana on the level of the vital (the vital nature, vital temperament, and vital defects; human relations and interactions). The third part deals with sadhana on the physical, subconscient, and inconscient levels and the fourth addresses the kinds of difficulties encountered in the practice of Yoga, how to face and overcome such difficulties, and the nature and function of the adverse forces in the sadhana.
