About Sri Aurobindo
Prof. Iyengar's biography of Sri Aurobindo, long a standard reference work, is now in its fifth edition. The author's subtitle indicates the depth and breadth of the book, as it links the life of Sri Aurobindo, who "played for our age the crucial role of leader of humanity's evolving destiny", with the history of India and the world. It also provides detailed discussions of Sri Aurobindo's writings, from the early poems and plays to the politics of Bande Mataram, from the philosophy and social thought of the Arya to the epic masterpiece of Savitri, as the essential keys to understanding his life and work.
