cover Navaneeta – The Cream of Wisdom
Inspiring Tales of Common Sense
— Narrator: Shah Shivjibhai Devshi; Writer: Pujalal

Navaneeta is a collection of twenty-eight tales narrated by Shivjibhai Devshi, transcribed by the poet Pujalal, and translated here from Gujarati into English by the editor. These stories take the form of parables, allegories, and anecdotes arising from Shivjibhai’s own experiences. They teach the wisdom of a life lived in simplicity and freedom with compassion and joy. Pujalal met the author during the latter’s nine-month stay in the Ashram in 1932 and in 1944 took up the work of writing down the stories. The translator/editor has organised the tales into three sections—on nature and animals, on humanity, and on sadhana, and added apt quotations from the writings of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother.


cover Savitri: A Study in Style and Symbolism
— Madhumita Dutta
ISBN: 978-93-80761-38-1
Available since 12-Aug-2015
Binding: Soft Cover
Pages: 232
Price: Rs 200

Centred on Sri Aurobindo’s vision of the gnostic being as the next stage in the evolutionary journey of man, and the poetry of the Spirit as the future poetry, this book deals primarily with the symbolic significance and stylistic features of his epic poem Savitri. Chapters explore in depth the symbolism of the yogas of Aswapati and Savitri, man’s eternal quest for immortality symbolised by the transformation of Death, and the poetic style of Sri Aurobindo. The author also attempts to answer various criticisms of the poem, discusses the relevance of Sri Aurobindo’s language and style to his subject matter, and concludes with her thoughts on the poem’s message for the world today.


cover Reminiscences
— Nolini Kanta Gupta
ISBN: 978-93-5210-015-6
Available since 08-Aug-2015
Binding: Soft Cover
Pages: 145
Price: Rs 90

In these reminiscences Nolini Kanta Gupta narrates events from his student years, the time he spent as a revolutionary and as a prisoner in Alipore Jail, the early years in Pondicherry with Sri Aurobindo, life during the two World Wars, and his years as both a young footballer and an elderly athlete. The book also includes some early memories of the Mother. As most of the recollections were originally talks given by Nolini in Bengali to his classes, they reflect the intimacy and charm of his relation with the students. These memoirs first appeared in English in 1969 along with the reminiscences of two other early disciples, K. Amrita and Suresh Chakravarti. In this edition only Nolini’s memoirs have been included.

Available since 08-Aug-2015
Binding: Soft Cover
Pages: 69
Price: Rs 60

These reminiscences tell the story of how Amrita, at the age of fifteen, conceived a great desire to meet Sri Aurobindo and pursued this dream for more than three years until he finally met his Master in 1913. Amrita writes of his early life in his village, his days as a student in Pondicherry, his contact with the poet Subramania Bharati, his efforts to meet Sri Aurobindo, his studies in Madras, and his gradual initiation to Sri Aurobindo’s Yoga. This brief narrative, written in 1962 in Tamil, was translated into English in 1969 and published under the title Old Long Since as part of the larger book Reminiscences. In this book, the English translation of Amrita’s memoir is being published for the first time as an independent book.

Binding: Soft Cover
Pages: 161
Price: Rs 65

A collection of essays written mostly over a span of twenty years, this book looks at certain aspects of Sri Aurobindo’s philosophy and Integral Yoga and provides a personal perspective on spiritual practice in the Sri Aurobindo Ashram. Topics include the meaning of the terms spirituality, yoga, and surrender in Sri Aurobindo’s lexicon, the role of the Divine Mother in the supramental transformation, and the special character and purpose of the Ashram. The essays in the final section attempt to examine and explain the hidden, complex inner dynamics of sadhana as practised individually and collectively in the Ashram.


cover Sri Aurobindo and the Logic of the Infinite
Essays for the New Millennium
— Rod Hemsell
Available since 20-Jul-2015
Binding: Soft Cover
Pages: 319
Price: Rs 325

This collection of essays, many of which were originally presented as lectures, readings, and workshops, attempts to examine the writings of Sri Aurobindo in the context of philosophy and to present the ideas of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother in relation to topical subjects and concerns. It is the author’s conviction that only through the radical transformations – individual and collective – proposed by them that pressing global concerns such as war, poverty, exhaustion of natural resources, and the destruction of the biosphere will be effectively addressed. Ranging across diverse subjects, there are also essays on Auroville, spirituality in healing, Sri Aurobindo’s Savitri, and the work of supramental transformation done by the Mother.
