This book contains short prose pieces written by Sri Aurobindo between 1910 and 1950, but not published during his lifetime. The material consists largely of writings on philosophy, psychology and yoga. There are also some cultural writings and collection of sayings entitled Thoughts and Aphorisms.

“The contributions of evil to the good of the world & the harm sometimes done by the virtuous are distressing to the soul enamored of good. Nevertheless be not distressed nor confounded, but study rather & calmly understand God’s ways with humanity.”

“In God’s providence there is no evil, but only good or its preparation.”
This volume comprises most of the shorter prose written by Sri Aurobindo after coming to Pondicherry in 1910 and not published during his lifetime.
