The present compilation is an attempt to bring together in one volume the manifold teachings pertaining to the psychic being which are to be found in the numerous works of Sri Aurobindo and The Mother.

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.

I am not writing a review since that is not necessary. So much has already been written about Sri Aurobindo and Mother. I only say that this is a wonderful collection of quotations on this supremely important subject of the Psychic Being, our very soul, and the necessity of discovering this for ourselves, actually meeting our deepest Self, as a major step in our spiritual progress.

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.

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.
