About The Ascent of the Sacrifice

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.
