The Mother’s Agenda
The Mother’s Agenda is the complete logbook of her exploration in the cellular consciousness of her body, recorded by Satprem, a disciple of the Mother, in the course of numerous personal conversations with her. It covers 23 years of experiences which parallel some of the most recent theories of modern physics, and are perhaps the key to man’s passage to the next species.
Nederlandse vertaling van de Inleiding tot de ‘Synthesis of Yoga’, van Sri Aurobindo.
De Synthese van Yoga verscheen tussen Augustus 1914 en Januari 1921 in het maandblad ‘Arya” en werd onmiddellijk voor verschijning door Sri Aurobindo geschreven. De Inleiding erop, hier in een Nederlandse vertaling, vormt een afgerond geheel van vijf hoofdstukken dat zijn grondgedachten over Yoga goed weergeeft. Deze Inleiding verscheen in de eerste uitgave van de ‘Arya’ op 15 Augustus 1915 en werd voltooid op 15 Januari 1915. Hij maakte 25 à 30 jaar later een enigszins herziene versie.
Aan de Nederlandse vertaling zijn een aantal voetnoten toegevoegd om de gebruikte Sanskriet terminologie nader toe te lichten.
The Life and Work of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother
The book “Beyond Man” by Georges van Vrekhem is based on documents which have never been presented before as a whole by other authors. It gives a surprising look behind the scenes of the history of this century. It presents a positive evaluation of the crisis our Earth is subject to at this very moment and it opens a vertiginous but hopeful perspective on the coming of a superhuman species and a divine life upon Earth.
Elements of Yoga
Elements of Yoga by Sri Aurobindo is a compilation of Sri Aurobindo’s replies to elementary questions about Yoga raised by a disciple during the years 1933 to 1936. It was first published in 1953 and reissued in 1956. In 1991 the text was reproduced as the first part of Commentaries on “Elements of Yoga” by the Mother. Elements of Yoga is now being issued independently again in a second edition.
Conversations with Sri Aurobindo
“Conversations with Sri Aurobindo” is Pavitra’s personal diary where he was recording his meeting with Sri Aurobindo which were held from December 18, 1925 to November 20, 1926. Book starts from the description of the first meeting of Pavitra with Sri Aurobindo. Each entry of this unique diary revals new depths of wisdom and yogic experience which Sri Aurobindo shares with his disciple. Pavitra, a French engineer of the Polytechnic School, arrived at Pondicherry on the 17th of December, 1925, having come from a Mongolian lamasery where his spiritual search had driven him, after his having spent four years in Japan. He never left Pondicherry again, where he lived for forty-four years in the service of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother. He left his body on May 16, 1969. These brief conversations were noted from memory, most of the time in French, except towards the end. Hence, they do not represent the exact words of the Master, but are as faithful a record as possible. Pavitra was then 31 years old.
The Supramental Manifestation upon Earth
Sri Aurobindo wrote these eight essays, his last prose writings, in 1949 and 1950 for publication in the quarterly Bulletin of Physical Education (at present called the Bulletin of Sri Aurobindo International Centre of Education). They reveal a vision which includes the perfection of the body as an instrument of the action of the spirit, the nature and structure of a divine body and the conditions and operations of its life on earth, the manifestation of a supramental truth-consciousness as the basis for a divine life upon earth, and the creation of a new humanity possessed of a mind of light.
Letters on Savitri
Sri Aurobindo’s letters on Savitri. These letters are published at the end of Savitri for their rare value as a great poet’s informal self-commentary. These letters had been published in 1954 Savitri edition but were omitted in the later publications. Here we publish them as a separate book.
Book The Mother by Sri Aurobindo: These inspirational essays by Sri Aurobindo form a powerful statement of the true attitude to be taken by a sadhak of the integral Yoga: one of a complete and dynamic surrender to the Mother. They describe the triple movement of aspiration, rejection, and surrender, the conditions for a true faith and sincerity, the irresistible power of the Divine Mother’s grace, the need to reconquer the money-force for the Mother’s work, and the joy of a perfect instrumentality through selfless work, surmounting the demands of the ego. The final piece describes the four great powers and personalities of the Divine Mother.
Sri Aurobindo or The Adventure of Consciousness
“Sri Aurobindo or The Adventure of Consciousness” is one of the most remarkable books written by Satprem. It has particular appeal to the westerners, who approach yoga subject trough the mind. Many seekers on the path of the Integral Yoga came to know about Sri Aurobindo through reading this book.
There is in Sri Aurobindo a revolutionary, a poet, a philosopher, a visionary of evolution. He is not only the explorer of consciousness, but the builder of a new world. For evolution is not over: “Man is a transitional being,” he wrote at the beginning of the century. This now classic introduction to Sri Aurobindo (in a new edition and translation) not only tells us the story of his life, in itself a remarkable adventure; Satprem also takes us along in a methodical exploration of Sri Aurobindo’s “integral yoga,” showing how it leads to a “divine rehabilitation of Matter” and gives our painful evolution its meaning and hope. “We have denied the Divinity in Matter to confine it in our holy places, and now Matter is taking its revenge — we called it crude, and crude it is. As long as we accept this Imbalance, there is no hope for the earth: we will swing from one pole to the other — both equally false — from material enjoyment to spiritual austerity, without ever finding our plenitude. We need both the vigor of Matter and the fresh waters of the Spirit…. Now the time may have come at last to unveil the Mysteries and to recover the complete truth of the two poles within a third position, which is neither that of the materialists nor that of the spiritualists. – Satprem
