Sri Aurobindo--successively poet, critic, scholar, thinker, nationalist, humanist--is the most significant and perhaps the most interesting person

22 Aug 2008 by Dr Shaleen Kumar Singh. The fact that Sri Aurobindo is one of the pioneers of Indian English critics grows more and more vibrant and authentic when one journeys through the works of him where he appears to be a chief living authority on Indo-English criticism.

Dear Shaleen Meticulous Work ! It is very delightful to read about Sri Aurobindo . Of all modern writers Aurobindo---successively poet, critic, scholar, thinker, nationalist, humanist---is the most significant and perhaps the most interesting person.

Poetry from the Innermost Recesses of the Heart: An Interview with D. C. Chambial... myHimachal, India - 20 Aug 2008 Interest and one’s inclination are the foremost ingredients to enjoy any work of art. There have been writers/poets, like Kabir and Tulsidas who never went to school, yet they are everyman’s writers. While Eliot, Pound, Yeats and Sri Aurobindo are the centre of interest to the only few.

Essays On The Gita
21 Aug 2008 It was after reading these essays, in particular, that in the 1930's President Wilson's daughter went to Sri Aurobindo and devoted her life - receiving the name Nishtha via his vision in the Sri Aurobindo Ashram at Pondicherry.

The Vedic rishis worked in the opposite direction from above downwards, raising and expanding their powers of consciousness and then directed that consciousness to illuminate the reality of nature. They discovered the underlying reality from which all phenomena are created. Sri Aurobindo says this discovery is of greater practical significance to the world that the discoveries of Copernicus and Newton. In Life Divine, he has described in logical and rational terms that reality and the complete process of creation by which it manifests in the universe as mind, life and matter and evolves from matter higher forms of life and higher levels of consciousness.
