About the Book

This is an invaluable collection of reminiscences of early sadhaks of Sri Aurobindo Ashram, recording their personal experiences of Sri Aurobindo’s and the Mother's Grace in day-to-day life. It presents a rare and intimate history of the Ashram. The personalities of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother stand revealed in all their compassion, love and solicitude for humanity.

About the Author

Recognised as the man who has made Sri Aurobindo accessible to all, M. P. Pandit lived at the Sri Aurobindo Ashram for over fifty years, the greater part of which was spent as the Mother's secretary. On the firm basis of his experience he has written and spoken extensively on the Veda, Upanishads, Gita, Tantra, Occultism, Psychology and Yoga in the light of Sri Aurobindo's integral approach. He is recognised worldwide as an authentic exponent of Sri Aurobindo's philosophy and its practice as manifested by the Mother.

Preface

The Philosophy of Sri Aurobindo's gospel of Divine Life is there enshrined in his vast body of literature. The Teachings of the Mother are there amply explained in her Writings and Talks which are happily growing year by year. But how have they radiated their Light in this obscure and resisting world, how have men and women received their Grace in day-to-day life? Moved by a strong need to record this practical side of their Manifestation, I approached a number of friends for their personal testimonies. Some graciously complied with my request, some declined. Of those who agreed, some wrote out their reminiscences; others were interviewed and these reports were submitted to them for approval. This volume is a collection of these valuable papers and, as the readers would see, forms a rare and intimate history of the Ashram. The personalities of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother stand revealed in all their compassion, love and solicitude for the upliftment of erring humanity. Their advent on earth has indeed been a "Breath of Grace" that has turned a new page in the annals of mankind.
