Inauguration of Auroville
Concept and Purpose
— Concept & Layout: Franz Fassbender
ISBN: 978-81-928152-5-1
Available since 13-Sep-2017

Pages: 151

On 28 February 2018 Auroville celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of its inauguration and this book, replete with historical information, photographs, reminiscences, and conversations with the Mother about the event, presents a narrative that captures the optimism and high feeling of the day. The Mother directed the organisation of the inauguration and, from her room in the Ashram, read out her message and the Charter of Auroville that was broadcast live to the guests and participants at the arena in Auroville. From the smallest detail, such as the badge to be worn by the security volunteers, to the dramatic moment, when young people deposited the soil of countries from around the world into the inaugural urn, the book tells the story of how Auroville was announced to the world.


The Ascent of the Sacrifice
— In the words of Sri Aurobindo (with Comments and Discussions)
ISBN: 978-81-86510-20-9
Available since 12-Sep-2017
Binding: Soft Cover
Pages: 127
Price: Rs 125

Based on a series of study classes conducted at the Sri Aurobindo Divine Life Education Centre, this book is a compilation of extracts drawn primarily from Sri Aurobindo’s The Synthesis of Yoga, Essays on the Gita, and his writings on the Veda. At places the extracts are followed by comments and discussions from the classes. The selections are organised by theme: the nature of sacrifice, its Vedic symbolism, its significance, the law of sacrifice based on the descent of the Purusha, and the ascent of sacrifice through the works of knowledge, love, and will through a labour of self-discipline and self-perfection.


Sri Aurobindo and Uttarpara Speech
— Trija Ray
Available since 11-Sep-2017
Binding: Soft Cover
Pages: 40
Price: Rs 50

This short book discusses Sri Aurobindo's speeches as a leader of the independence movement in general and the background for this historic speech given on the grounds of Uttarpara’s public library after his release from Alipore jail in 1909. In the Uttarpara speech Sri Aurobindo spoke publicly for the first time about his spiritual experiences in prison. He explained that God had given him the strength "to speak a word to this nation which will help to raise it". The message on Sanatan Dharma was the central theme, and some have written that the speech contained in seed form the basic principles of his Integral Yoga that evolved later.

Available since 12-Aug-2017
Binding: Hard Cover
Pages: 442
Price: Rs 550

Like the first two books in this series, this one is also based on transcripts of classes held at Savitri Bhavan. The author's aim in those classes was to read the poetry as correctly as possible, according to the natural rhythms of English speech, to gain a basic understanding of the vocabulary, sentence structure, and imagery used by Sri Aurobindo, and thereby gain a better understanding and appreciation of the poem. This volume covers the seven cantos of Book Seven, The Book of Yoga. As the previous volume covered Book Three and this one resumes with Book Seven, brief summaries of Books Four, Five and Six are given in an introductory section to provide some continuity to the series. Also included at the end is a summary of Book Eight.
