The modern world's structures are changing rapidly as new problems arise from advances in science and technology. Man's mind is unable to keep pace with the movement he has himself set in motion and the unsolvable problems that confront him, yet he aspires to self-mastery, perfection, peace, beauty, and love. What is the meaning of terrestrial life and the present evolutionary crisis? This anthology compiled from Sri Aurobindo's The Life Divine, The Synthesis of Yoga, and The Human Cycle deals with this crucial question, tracing the past and pointing to the future of human evolution, both individual and social.
Sri Aurobindo explores the cycles of human development with an eye toward showing the underlying trend and impulsion in that development. He shows how humanity moves successively through various stages whereby different powers are developed and highlighted towards an ultimate integration and fulfillment of human destiny in an outflowing of our hidden spiritual nature in the diversity and vibrancy of our physical, vital and mental life.
Sri Aurobindo's book The Mother is a highly concentrated and powerful guide to spirituality and yoga. Consisting of just six chapters, it provides inspiration and direction of the highest order and for many it acts as a lifelong companion on the journey. The sixth chapter, which describes the Four Powers of the Mother is frequently called the Matri Upanishad and can rightfully take its place with those more ancient inspired texts. In Indian philosophy, the Mother represents shakti, the power and energy of creation.Santosh Krinsky has been studying the work of Sri Aurobindo for over 40 years. He brings his experience and insights to bear on the significance of this short, but significant book.
‘‘Savitri’’ Sri Aurobindo's major poetic work, an epic in blank verse. In Savitri, a legend from the Mahabharata becomes the symbol of the human soul's spiritual destiny.

The writing of the epic extended over much of the later part of his life.
‘‘Bases Of Yoga’’ by Sri Aurobindo. Excellent introduction to the practice of Integral Yoga.
