Make Sri Aurobindo the ‘Voice of India and its Politics’ !


One Asit says:
“This summer, got to pondicherry. if you’ve never heard of aurobindo, then you sleep.
Reviewer Rakesh says:
“The message of the future. Every word read brings the seeker closer to that Reality.
A message of hope – the dawn of a new era – a divine life in a divine body on a divine earth.”
Reviewer Jeannine M. Desmarais says:
“Every word a meditation unto itself. Ok. I’m a fairly intelligent human being and have been on the spiritual path for a very long time. This book is so filled with profound revelation and is so deep that I have been reading it a paragraph at a time, putting it down and re-reading it. In other words, lectio divino is required to really absorb the profound teachings of Aurobindo’s work.

An amazing soul that has much to teach, but not an “easy” read by any means. If you don’t want to work, don’t get this book. If you have ever read a Shakespeare play through first with cliff notes and read every footnote to understand the language, then re-read the play with your new understanding and experienced the heartfelt pleasure of reading Shakespeare with a satisfying joy and deep amazement, you will know what I mean.”

Reviewer ECA says:
“This book is that good. Take your time & pursue it. Read all of the other 5 star reviews, then double it. This book is that good. Take your time & puruse it, read it, & reread it again & each time take away some enlightenment. This is one of my top 5 “go to” books. I just wish I had a hardback copy.”

    This is too long an article to finish in one reading and also what I find is that the language used by Shri Aurobindo is extremely high standard even tough for me (I consider myself a reasonably enlightened Indian with a good level of knowledge of English language and I too find Shri Aurbondp a bit too difficult to follow). In fact I would rather one of his ardent followers rewrite his great messages in today’s language for posterity to follow them properly. It would be a great service to Indian youth of today. Any volunteer for this great effort?

      Re: “too long an article” – It has two parts: 1. Body of article. 2. Quotes of reviews by those who read The Life Divine. You may leave the second part, if you want the short account.

      Re: “writing in simple language what Sri Aurobindo said” – We at IPC are always at your disposal. But is it possible to put him in simple language without an expert team of 100 people who understand him?

      It may be a good idea to first find on internet a group of people who like the idea reflected in this article – that is, “it is the time to bring Sri Aurobindo to the center-stage of Indian politics.”
