About the Author:

Sri Aurobindo Ghose (1872-1950) is considered by many India's greatest modern philosopher-sage. Classically educated in the West, Aurobindo spent the early part of his career campaigning for India's independence and later became one of the most revered figures of Eastern spirituality.

A.S. Dalal is a clinical psychologist and a leading scholar of Aurobindo's work.

From Library Journal:

"Consciousness is a reality inherent in existence," taught the Hindu mystic Aurobindo (1872-1950). He rejected Western psychology, which begins with individual conscious personalities viewing and reacting to phenomena external to themselves. Human minds participate in a continuum of Mind, of which the practice of "Integral Yoga" can make one aware. On the other hand, Aurobindo stressed conscious reality's involvement in all things material, and rejected claims that the material world is mere illusion. This dynamic Reality, which transcends we who are individual instances of it, this "greater psychology," is the topic of this systematically arranged anthology drawn from the 30 volumes of Aurobindo's writings. Dalal (Hidden Forces of Life, Growing Within), a clinical psychologist connected with Aurobindo's ashram, supplements the anthology with seven essays on the teacher's psychological thought and a useful, concise glossary. While Aurobindo's more popular texts (The Life Divine, Letters on Yoga) are widely available, this anthology offers a clearly organized introduction to his views and their relation to yoga practice. It offers a profound antidote to the individualistic psychology of the West.DSteve Young, Montclair State Univ., NJ
