Yoga used in a world of action, for action, not for renouncing but for transforming our lives. This is what makes Sri Aurobindo stand apart in his spiritual outlook and attainment. 'Man is a transitional being, he is not final', said he. And the time has now come to take the next decisive step in our evolutionary journey, of giving birth to a new humanity.
It was the Mother who, along with Sri Aurobindo, in a small coastal town of southern India, planted the seeds of this new possibility, and began giving a concrete form to this vision. This book tells the story of thsese two pioneers- their birth and growth, their struggles and triumphs, their coming together and their extraordinary journey of a World-transforming Yoga… In a way, it is the story of us all, the story of our Planet- a story that is still unfolding!
A large number of biographies have been written on Sri Aurobindo and the Mother, focusing on various aspects of their life and teachings.
However, a need was felt for something short and handy, which would serve as a first introduction to their lives, work and vision. It would include the major outer events but also touch upon the deeper dimensions of two of the great spiritual leaders of modern India. Though meant for all, the youth and the students would find it of special interest.
We hope this small book will, to some extent, fulfill this purpose.
