Perfect introduction to Sri Aurobindo 27 Dec. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Sri Aurobindo was, in the opinion of many yogis, the greatest saint who was generally available to the public in modern times. (The caveat is because there are great souls who prefer to remain hidden.) Though his wisdom was vast and his discoveries in deep meditation greatly advanced our understanding of humanity's capabilities, his writings are so huge and dense, that comparitively few have understood the majesty of the man's philosophy. That is why Sat Prem's book is so valuable. You will never find a more succinct or readable tome on Aurobindo. It is the perfect introduction to the work of this great master, who deserves to be much better known in the West.

Synthesis 8 May 2001
By Tony Criscuolo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The writings of Aurobindo are enormous. As much as one might wish to bathe in the wisdom of this extraordinary man, the task is too much for most of due to the massive tomes we would confront. However, Satprem has magnificently synthesised the life work of Aurobindo. Not only has he accomplished this task well, but the subtelty, the depth of vision that Satprem manages to convey, says to me that he is himself someone who has great insight, has great life experience and spiritual maturity.

best book on consciousness 23 Mar. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is does what all other books on spirituality and psychology fail to do: integrate the two. Too many seem to have fallen into the trap of looking for a 'nirvana' unrelated to what's going on around them or conversely plumbing the depths of their own thoughts and feelings or just conquering the outer material world. This book offers a positive prescription around both these dilemnas while resolving the seeming contradictions of 'meditation' and 'action in the world'.

Avatar of the Supramental 13 Jun. 2006
By P. Rustad - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is very important in my life. I first read it in 1970 when I was on a furious hunt for 'Truth', the meaning of life, etc. At that time I owned several books by Sri Aurobindo, including the "Life Divine". But they were all heavy, erudite tomes. Then I read Satprem's poetic, inspiring treatment of Aurobindo's life. I cannot describe here the ecstatic opening of consciousness that reading this book gave. It was as though every word was on fire. And the same with Aurobindo's book on "The Mother".

Sri Aurobindo (and the Mother), are Co-Avatars of the Supramental. But that's another story.

the core teachings of Aurobindo 21 Mar. 2002
By Shawn Regan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The author is a student of Aurobindo's and 'The Mother'. Aurobindo's experience and description have an uncommon breadth and depth to them. Where most disciplines stop (Nirvana) Aurobindo is just getting started. This book is well written in readable english. Satprem does a fine job of presenting some history of Sri Aurobindo as well as the core teachings of this rare individual.
