Sri Aurobindo: An Educational Thinker

N.L. Gupta (Author)
Synopsis Sri Aurobindo’s personality was such a multi-faceted that his contribution towards the system of education remained dormant. Lot of ink has been spent in highlighting his contribution towards poetry, social service, freedom-struggle, spiritual writing, yoga etc. Sri Aurobindo and the mother, the founders of the new system of integral education were born teachers, not in the sense that they were born into teacher’s families but they had their natural tendency for this work. This humble effort is to highlight his educational ideals and ideas, which are, of course, based on his own philosophy particularly that of ‘The Life Divine’, which says that "there is divinity in every individual". The need is to get a man sublimated so that he may reach at his zenith. He has to become ‘superman’ by raising and consolidating his all mental faculties and elevating it to the state of ‘super-mind’. It is hoped that the present monograph will suitably highlight the educational thinking of the twin teachers i.e., Sri Aurobindo and the mother.
