The author spent his formative years from 1944 to 1958 at the Sri Aurobindo Ashram.

cover Sri Aurobindo and European Philosophy
— Wilfried Huchzermeyer
ISBN: 978-81-928152-9-9
Available since 02-May-2016
Binding: Soft Cover
Pages: 193
Price: Rs 399

The primary focus of this study is to show how closely Sri Aurobindo's thought is related to European philosophy. The author maintains that Sri Aurobindo's own inner experience and spiritual perception presented a deeper understanding and a larger vision of the basic thought of some Western philosophers: Heraclitus, Plato, Plotinus, Schelling, Hegel, Nietzsche, Bergson, Teilhard de Chardin, Gebser, and Whitehead. The final two chapters comprise Sri Aurobindo's 1915 essay Evolution and a look at how the philosophers discussed in the book are represented in an analysis of modern theories of evolution.

— A short film based on a story by the Mother
Available since 19-Apr-2016
Price: Rs 123

Written by the Mother as a school essay in 1893, this simple story of a young student points to the moral lesson of heeding one's inner voice and choosing the right path, and never postponing that choice for a later time. The DVD presents two sixteen-minute film versions of the story, one in French and the other in English, each set to music, told by a narrator, and illustrated with a series of black-and-white sketches. The printed text, in French and in English, is included in the DVD case.

cover Excellence in Professional Work
A Consciousness Approach
— M. S. Srinivasan
ISBN: 978-81-7060-367-2
Available since 01-Mar-2016
Binding: Soft Cover
Pages: 116
Price: Rs 220

Based on the premise that excellence in professional work is the external result of the effective use of inner faculties in our consciousness, this book attempts a practical approach to developing these inner abilities. The strategies and methods outlined here can be practised individually or applied to a collective endeavour. Drawing on many of the precepts of the Integral Yoga, the author discusses such inner faculties as concentration, mindfulness, analytical intelligence, pragmatic intelligence, emotional intelligence, will and vital-force, imagination, and intuition, and suggests how they can be developed to improve workplace performance.
