About India: Its Spirit and Mission

These selections from Sri Aurobindo’s writings point to the Indian idea of nationhood—the nation as Shakti, a great communal soul and life with its own law of nature. They describe the keys to the greatness of the Indian civilisation as her spirituality, her stupendous vitality, her strong intellectuality, and a profound psychological foundation. They portray the distinct value of Indian civilisation, her originality, creative genius, and their impact on the world. They lay bare her mission, with its challenges and future directions, to be a living example of how to find the larger self in others, in the nation, in humanity, in God. The book concludes with extracts from Sri Aurobindo’s own description of his political action in the first decade of the twentieth century.
