Overview

Sri Aurobindo stands out as one of the most profound and profoundly relevant of contemporary Asian spiritual masters speaking to the West. His vision transcends the distinctive strengths and weaknesses of India and the West, and his discipline brings the yogas of the Gita to the task of world transformation.

Aurobindo's collaborator, The Mother, offers a blueprint for the utopian community Auroville and sage advice on the ideal of a spiritually based approach to education. Robert McDermott's Afterword recounts the increased significance of Aurobindo's message for the West, and particularly for America, since the book was first published in 1973.
