The details of Sri Aurobindo's outer life as poet, scholar, politician and journalist, literary critic, and philosopher have always intrigued readers. One of the first biographies was this one by A.B. Purani, an early disciple, whose straightforward account includes Research material, correspondence and personal reminiscences.

The Narrative of Sri Aurobindo's life in his own words is especially inspiring and the long account of his Political life tells a fascinating story.

"But over and above his Solid contribution to literature and the struggle for freedom, he has given a loftier Vision to the modern world-the vision of man's destiny of divine life on earth."
