A single-volume guide to the writing and thought of one of the greatest personalities of modern India.As a writer, Sri Aurobindo's range was staggering; there is hardly a field of human endeavor that escaped his notice. This collection offers a representative sampling of his writings with selections from most of his major works and areas of interest. The volume begins with the early, often-ignored essays written during the struggle for independence. Also included are some of his poems, letters and aphorisms. Together, they provide an ideal introduction to the complex and brilliant mind of a remarkable yogi and seer-poet.
