Sri Aurobindo Stands out as one of the most profound and profoundly relevant of contemporary Asian spiritual masters speaking to the West. His vision transcends the distinctive strengths and weaknesses of India and the West, and his discipline brings the yogas of the Gita to the task of world transformation.
Sri Aurobindo’s integral philosophy is today recognized and appreciated as a monumental synthesis of the highest cultural values of East and West. There is an immense wealth of outstanding psychological and spiritual discoveries embedded in his voluminous writings, which stand at the watershed of a new era of yogic culture.
-from The Essence of Yoga by George Feuerstein
Sri Aurobindo’s yoga points the way toward the kind of transformative practice we need to realize our greatest potentials. No philosopher or contemplative of modern times has done more to reveal our possibilities for extraordinary life.
-Michael Murphy, founder of Esalen Institute, and author of The Future of the body
A new type of thinker, one who combines in his vision the alacrity of the West with the illuminations of the East. To study his writings is to enlarge the boundaries of one’s knowledge.
-Times Literary Supplement, London
Sri Aurobindo is one of the most important and influential spiritual figures of our time, whose work deserves to be better known.
-Robert Johnson, author of He and She
