cover The Luminous Past
— Pramila Devi
ISBN: 978-0-9562923-3-9
Available since 21-Apr-2014
Binding: Soft Cover
Pages: 195
Price: Rs 175

The anecdotes collected in this book, a translation of the original Bengali, span five decades, from the early 1940s to the late 1980s. Pramila Devi joined the Ashram as a young woman in 1941. She learned French, worked in the bakery and the laundry and also taught at the school. Such sadhaks as Nolini, André, Amrita, Pavitra, Pranab, Janina, her cousin Jatin, and especially Bharati often figure in her recollections of these years. In 1962, the Mother asked her to look after the Jhunjhun boarding for students, a work she continued until her passing in 1995. This translation first appeared in serial form in Mother India between 2011 and 2013.

The Meaning of Spirituality
— Selections from the Works of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother
ISBN: 979-81-7058-037-8
Available since 12-Apr-2014

Pages: 174
Price: Rs 80

Spirituality may often be confused with morality, idealism, and religion, which play significant roles in regulating, controlling, and directing the lives of most men. But spirituality, or yoga in its more general sense, is essentially different because it proceeds directly by a change of consciousness and presents a radical new approach to life. This approach, which goes beyond the ego and its exclusive focus on the common habits of the mind, life, and body, reveals to man how to find his true self and seek union with the Divine. The editor has selected passages from the works of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother that define and clarify these fundamental differences and, in the final section, that describe how to prepare for and take up the path of yoga.

Available since 18-Mar-2014
Binding: Hard Cover
Pages: 235
Price: Rs 550

This scholarly study begins with an overview of Sri Aurobindo’s life and his philosophic and spiritual thought. The next chapter discusses Sri Aurobindo’s poetics, in which vision is the characteristic power of a poet. Subsequent chapters deal with symbolism in his poetry, a comparative study of myth and symbol in world literature and in the context of Savitri, Aswapathy’s spiritual odyssey of the soul, and a look at the major symbols of fire, the sun, the dawn, light, and night in Savitri, with reference to the Vedas and Upanishads. The final chapters study symbolism in Savitri and the Divine Comedy, and the use of myth as an instrument of higher knowledge and vision in modern literature.
