Description

This book is easily the finest and most accessible sampling of the psychological writings of one of the most brilliant and influential modern world-teachers. Anyone interested in meditation, Yoga contemplative practices, transpersonal psychology or the contemporary vision of human destiny probably knows or has heard of the works of Sri Aurobindo. His magnum opus, The Life Divine, is acknowledged as a most profound work in the realms of Yoga, Philosophy and the enigma that is life. While Sri Aurobindo’s books are demanding, A Greater Psychology succeeds in bringing his insights to a wider public. In the first half of the book, A.S. Dalal introduces the issues at the core of Sri Aurobindo’s psychological thought and presents well-organised excerpts of his work on topics including:1. The nature of Consciousness2. The Make-up of the human being3. Self and ego4. The subliminal and the Subconscient5. The Psychic Being6. Sleep and Dreams7. The Psychology of Faith8. Cosmic Consciousness9. The Psychology of collective development 10. Growth towards a greater psychologyIn the second half, Dalal offers engaging and lucid essays that further illuminate various aspects of Sri Aurobindo’s thought and vision. He concludes with a glossary of names and terms that makes a Greater Psychology accessible even to those who are only beginning to comprehend Sri Aurobindo.COMMENTS:“When it comes to a 'greater psychology' -- one which includes body, mind, soul, and spirit -- Aurobindo has much to teach us, as is clearly and beautifully documented in the book you now hold in your hands. A.S. Dalal has done a superb job in presenting a balanced sampling of Aurobindo's psychological writings. Because of its fair and representative nature, its comprehensive examples, and the clarity of Dalal's own commentary, this book is surely the finest overview of Aurobindo's psychological thought now available.”--- From the Foreword by Ken Wilber “… The Greater Psychology awaiting its hour…”--- Sri Aurobindo
