I'd like to share with fellow Evolvers a video sent to me via M. Alan Kazlev, a friend and correspondent of mine. It runs for an hour and a half, and details the life, transformation and teachings of Sri Aurobindo.
Dr. Debashish is a good story teller. This video, I think, is appropriate on Evolver particularly for Aurobindo's insights for political activism, social change, and utilizing yogic powers as a means for creating "a life divine." Hope you enjoy! –Jer

The spiritual theory of evolution as developed by Sri Aurobindo (1872-1950) and the Mother (1878-1973) is experimental in character and it is this theory which has been expounded in this book as briefly as possible. The consequences of the spiritual theory of evolution are for the individual momentous, since it is the developed individuals who will lead the evolutionary process to the next step. Continue reading»

The secret of the manifestation of Para Prakriti has been discovered by Sri Aurobindo and the Mother, and it is this discovery which constitutes the novelty of the yoga of the integral transformation.

In history of yoga, you find the first synthesis of yoga in the Veda, which was followed by the synthesis in the Upanishads; the third synthesis is to be found in the Gita and the fourth synthesis is to be found in the Tantric Yoga. The Integral Yoga of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother is a new synthesis, and a question is often asked as to what is new in this synthesis. This book aims at answering these questions, and it can be regarded as an introduction to the original works of Sri Aurobindo on yoga and to the Mother’s books on the same subject. Continue reading»
Sri Aurobindo has called the present crisis of humanity an ‘evolutionary crisis’. After intensive research in Pondicherry in the Yogic systems of the past beginning with the Veda, he developed new methods so as to create and perfect a synthesis of Yoga directly relevant to humanity’s highest needs of today and tomorrow. Continue reading»

The Prime Minister of India Dr. Manmohan Singh visited Sri Aurobindo and The Mother’s Samadhi at Sri Aurobindo Ashram in the morning of 30th June. 
It is interesting to note that Dr. Manmohan Singh had once quoted from Sri Aurobindo’s writings on karmayoga in a speech at the parliament, when he was the Finance Minister.
