Sri Aurobindo was born in Calcutta on 15 August 1872. At the age of seven he was taken to England for education. There he studied at St. Paul's School, London, and at King's College, Cambridge. Returning to India in 1893, he worked for the next thirteen years in the Princely State of Baroda in the service of the Maharaja and as a professor in Baroda College. During this period he also joined a revolutionary society and took a leading role in secret preparations for an uprising against the British Government in India. In 1906, soon after the Partition of Bengal, Sri Aurobindo quit his post in Baroda and went to Calcutta, where he soon became one of the leaders of the Nationalist movement. He was the first political leader in India to openly put forward, in his newspaper Bande Mataram, the idea of complete independence for the country. Prosecuted twice for sedition and once for conspiracy, he was released each time for lack of evidence. Sri Aurobindo had begun the practice of Yoga in 1905 in Baroda. In 1908 he had the first of several fundamental spiritual realisations. In 1910 he withdrew from politics and went to Pondicherry in order to devote himself entirely to his inner spiritual life and work. During his forty years in Pondicherry he evolved a new method of spiritual practice, which he called the Integral Yoga. Its aim is a spiritual realisation that not only liberates man's consciousness but also transforms his nature. In 1926, with the help of his spiritual collaborator, the Mother, he founded the Sri Aurobindo Ashram. Among his many writings are The Life Divine, The Synthesis of Yoga and Savitri. Sri Aurobindo left his body on 5 December 1950.

This collection of short prose works,written by sri aurobindo between 1909 and 1950 and published during his lifetime,deals primarily with aspects of spiritual philosophy and yoga. Arranged chronologically and by original place of publication,the volume begins with essays from the�karmayogin,followed by the early work�the yoga and its objects. The third part contains writings from the�arya,including essays on heraclitus,evolution,rebirth,and karma,and other pieces such as the summaries orarguments which preceded fifteen chapters of�the life divine�when it was originally serialised. The fourth part is a long essay published in 1920 in�the standard bearer. The book concludes with the series of essays on the supramental manifestation written in 194950. Most of the works in this volume were formerly published together under the title�the supramental manifestation and other writings.
