About the Author

The book draws mainly from the teachings of the Author's master Sri Aurobindo.A write-up on Sri Aurobindo follows. Sri Aurobindo (Aurobindo Ghose) (Bengali: ( ) Sri Ôrobindo) (15 August 1872 5 December 1950) was an Indian nationalist and freedom fighter, major Indian English poet, philosopher, and yogi.He joined the movement for India's freedom from British rule and for a duration (1905 10), became one of its most important leaders,before turning to developing his own vision and philosophy of human progress and spiritual evolution. The central theme of Sri Aurobindo's vision is the evolution of life into a "life divine". In his own words: "Man is a transitional being. He is not final. The step from man to superman is the next approaching achievement in the earth evolution. It is inevitable because it is at once the intention of the inner spirit and the logic of Nature's process". The principal writings of Sri Aurobindo include, in prose, The Life Divine, considered his single great work of metaphysics,The Synthesis of Yoga, Secrets of the Vedas, Essays on the Gita, The Human Cycle, The Ideal of Human Unity, Renaissance in India and other essays, Supramental Manifestation upon Earth, The Future Poetry, Thoughts and Aphorisms and several volumes of letters. In poetry, his principal work is "Savitri - a Legend and a Symbol" in blank verse. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Important Information

Ingredients
When one reflects on the meaning and purpose of individual existence, the question of the soul, or as Sri Aurobindo names it, the psychic being, inevitably arises. It is this inner essence, or "souls" that moves from life to life, gathers to itself the experience, and develops the psychic personality, standing behind the life movements and informing them with their original divine intention.

This little book is the Heart of Integral Yoga. It is the short path through the Letters and all the other works of the master and guide. With it, the practice is easier and the goal most certain. If you are a sincere aspirant, this book will serve you well and lead you to the sunlit path.

This is the real explanation about the psychic aspect of our being. Time for education in these matters written by one who experienced his own psychic being, Sri Aurobindo. So much nonsense is written about the psychic it is refreshing to find a book that explains the experience of the psychic being.

For me, this is priceless: "“There are other times when, for some reason or other, one is clouded or closed or down in a hole, and so one no longer feels anything and all things lose their taste, their interest, their value; one goes about like a walking block of wood.” The Mother, p. 181

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book suffers from not having a suitable introduction. An explanation of the significance of the subject-matter of the book was sorely missed. The first part of the book describes the troubles Sri Aurobindo and the Mother had to go through to explain the translation of the inner I or chaitya purusha or soul as the psychic being. The chaitya purusha is one of the most important teachings of Sri Aurobindo.
The chaitya purusha is not the jivaatman. The jivaatman is the akartaa witness, the chaitya purusha is associated with ahamkaara, therefore, the doer. If I understood it correctly, the chaitya purusha is the bird that eats the fruit while the jivaatman watches.
