Description

Sri Aurobindo once wrote to a disciple: “I see that you have persisted in giving a biography – is it really necessary or useful? The attempt is bound to be a failure, because neither you nor anyone else knows anything at all about my life: it has not been on the surface for man to see.”

This book contains notes in which Sri Aurobindo spoke of his own life and work, personal letters to family members and associates and public statement. The material has been arranged by the editors into several sections, as follows:
1. Life sketches and other biographical notes
2. Corrections of statements made in biographies
3. Letters to his family
4. Letters to political and professional associates
5. Early letters on yoga and the spiritual life
6. Private letters to public figures
7. Public statement on Indian and world events
8. Public statements concerning his ashram and yoga
