The author of this biography terms it a study of Sri Aurobindo’s life and his transformation of consciousness told through the lens of his writings. Examined in tandem, his life and his writings become an integral study in literature, history, psychology, philosophy, and yoga. Combining historical context and with liberal quotations from Sri Aurobindo’s writings, she focuses on some important aspects of his political and spiritual life and the social and cultural background in which he lived and worked.

Based on talks given in 2006, this book is organised around two written notes. First, it takes a deeper look into the symbolism expressed in the “Author’s Note” by Sri Aurobindo which precedes the beginning of the epic Savitri. Then there are a series of chapters examining the significance of a note written by the Mother to a disciple listing the four important aspects which form the essence of the epic—that it is the daily record of the spiritual experiences of Sri Aurobindo, a complete system of yoga that can be used as a guide to sadhana, the yoga of the Earth in its ascension towards the Divine, and the experiences of the Divine Mother in her effort to adapt herself to the body she has taken and the ignorance and the falsity of the earth upon which she has incarnated.

The authors of this study set out to explore Sri Aurobindo's political thought and revolutionary ideas embedded in his early political writings and speeches, most notably in his articles for the journal Bande Mataram. Chapters are devoted to the germination of his patriotism and his early action in the political field, his critique of the moderate policies of the Indian National Congress, a study of his concept of nationalism, his strategy to achieve political freedom through civil struggle, his journalistic crusade to demand Swaraj as the natural right of his countrymen, his scheme for a national system of education, and an analysis of the rhetorical devices and unique narrative voice used by him as an offensive weapon against both the British Government and the Moderates of the Indian National Congress.

An Outline of the Sensational Trial in the History of the Indian Independence Movement
— Niharendu Roy
Available since 27-Oct-2016
Binding: Soft Cover
Pages: 160
Price: Rs 150

Drawing on an array of resources, the author presents an overview of the history of the nationalist movement led by Sri Aurobindo and other prominent political leaders of the day. He recounts how the movement intensified as a result of the repressive stance of the British Government in India. The arrest of the group of young revolutionaries at Maniktala Gardens and the subsequent arrest of Sri Aurobindo set the scene for the Alipore Conspiracy Case, which is outlined in detail in this book. The valour and dedication of the young men is underlined by the short life sketches appended after the main narrative. Originally presented as an exhibition at a book fair in Kolkata, the book includes more than fifty pages of photographs of the people and events related to this historic trial.
