Understanding Thoughts of Sri Aurobindo

Indrani Sanyal (Editor) Krishna Roy (Editor)
Synopsis Understanding Thoughts of Sri Aurobindo explores various dimensions of thoughts of Sri Aurobindo (1872-1950) who is being respected as a patriot, nationalist, social reformer, educationist, historian, poet, visionary, Yogi and philosopher.  Sri Aurobindo is the interpreter of the Indian philosophical and spiritual tradition and one of the ablest exponents of this tradition dating back to the Vedas and the Upanisads.  Sri Aurobindo's emphasis on National Education, more in the cultural and spiritual sense, may provide an answer to the intellectual, moral and spiritual crisis.  This volume focuses upon the holistic, interdisciplinary approach to the thoughts of Sri Aurobindo, whose views and actions have left a lasting influence on the development of modern India.  Referring to his three major works, The Life Divine, The Synthesis of Yoga and Savitri, as well as over thirty other works where he expounded his thoughts, the well-researched writings reveal the special features of his vision.  They focus on his integral approach to the concept of evolution, his notion of integral philosophy and his concept of integral Yoga.  The essays include an in-depth study of Sri Aurobindo's concept of man, of state, and views regarding uplift of humanity.  This book contains scholarly articles that seek to unravel the many dimensions of his thoughts.  Students, researchers and persons interested in Sri Aurobindo Studies will be immensely benefited from this volume.
