Sri Aurobindo’s personality was such a multi-faceted that his contribution towards the system of education remained dormant.This work seeks to highlight his educational ideals and ideas, which are, of course, based on his own philosophy particularly that of The Life Divine, which says that there is divinity in every individual
Lot of ink has been spent in highlighting his contribution towards poetry, social service, freedom-struggle, spiritual writing, yoga etc. but his ideas on education has not been analysed adequately.
Sri Aurobindo and the mother, the founders of the new system of Integral Education were born teachers, not in the sense that they were born into teacher’s families but they had their natural tendency for this work.
The need is to get a man sublimated so that he may reach at his zenith. He has to become superman by raising and consolidating his all mental faculties and elevating it to the state of Super-mind.
It is hoped that the present monograph will suitably highlight the educational thinking of the twin teachers i.e., Sri Aurobindo and the Mother.
