01 Mar Sri Aurobindo or the Adventure of Consciousness
In this century, so hurried, incoherent, full of riches which dominate us more than they serve, we have need of a true mastery and of the joy that comes of it. But our psychology knows yet only the surfaces of being, and our imported orientalism illumines some obscure depths which may perhaps be adequate for the cross-legged sage, but not for the beleaguered men we are.
This now classic introduction to Sri Aurobindo not only tells us the story of his life—in itself a remarkable adventure—but Satprem also takes us along in a methodical exploration of Sri Aurobindo’s integral yoga, showing how it leads to a divine rehabilitation of Matter and gives our painful evolution its meaning and hope. Now the time may have come at last to unveil the Mysteries and to recover the complete truth of the two poles within a third position, which is neither that of the materialists nor that of the spiritualists.
Sri Aurobindo, or The Adventure of Consciousness has been written from a Western point of view and for those who yearn for a truth of Life and not only a truth with eyes closed. It presents just one aspect of Sri Aurobindo, the most practical one. We only hope it will lead the reader to explore for himself Sri Aurobindo, and perhaps, with him, find the perfect harmony of East and West, of inner freedom and outer mastery.
