This work is perhaps the most comprehensive review of the life and achievements of Sri Aurobindo published so far. The scheme of the book is simple. In the first seven chapters, the author has dealt more with the facts of Aurobindo's life and the gradual development of the drama of which he is the hero. Chapters eight to twelve deal essentially with his Sadhana, Siddhi and Teachings. In the present 6th edition, 3 new chapters have been added. One on The Mother, the second on Sri Aurobindo Ashram at Pondicherry and the third on the Auroville project. These additions seek to give the reader a total picture in outline of the Life and Gospel of Sri Aurobindo.
This book, therefore, will serve as a guide to the heritage of ideas and achievements which Sri Aurobindo has left behind him. Aurobindo's writings are difficult for the beginner to study but, with the guidance of Sri Diwakar's book, he can more easily follow the original works and so benefit fromtheir wisdom.
