Sri Aurobindo is one of the most well-known Indian personalities of the twentieth century. He was a freedom fighter, a yogi and a poet; he developed what has become known worldwide as Integral Yoga. As a sage of great wisdom, he was twice nominated for the Nobel Prize. In the present biography, his life is presented comprehensively in all of its aspects. The most important sources available today have been evaluated, among them his spiritual diary Record of Yoga, which was first published as a book in 2001. The author also takes readers on a journey through Sri Aurobindo's manifold literary creations, introducing them in accessible language to magnificent prose works such as The Life Divine, The Synthesis of Yoga or Essays on the Gita and the epic Savitri. This volume also portrays vividly the lesser known facet of Sri Aurobindo's personality as a freedom fighter and his influence among the Hardliners, until his moving to Pondicherry. Written as a living report with great insight and knowledge, this biography will be of great value to scholars, students and devotees interested in high-level integral studies. A careful documentation with numberless references facilitates further research into each respective subject. The large photo section contains many historical photos, as well as current images of the Sri Aurobindo Ashram and its surroundings.
