Chapter VI Surat Congress and the Aftermath 1907-1908 AT THE Calcutta Congress session in December 1906, the Nationalists had succeeded, largely as a result of Sri Aurobindo's influence and his effort behind the scenes, in prevailing on the Congress to pass resolutions adopting Swaraj as its goal and Swadeshi, Boycott and National Education as the effective means of realising it. This was a serious setback for the Moderates, who had strongly opposed the resolutions, and they were waiting for an opportunity to get back their hold over the organisation. Moreover, their Bombay group led by Sir Pherozeshah Mehta and Gokhale, could

SRI AUROBINDO FOR ALL AGES A BIOGRAPHY by NIRODBARAN FOREWORD There are biographies and biographies: each one has its particular value, its particular viewpoint. This new biography stands apart from all other books on Sri Aurobindo's life, its first distinctive feature being that it is written for the young generation, for whom it was a long-felt need. And its other special value lies in the fact that it is written by a disciple who had the great privilege of serving Sri Aurobindo for twelve years as his literary secretary and, before this, of carrying on a long correspondence with him. During the years 1938-1950 Sri Aurobindo's attendants used to s

Appendix The Message of Fifteenth August 1947 AUGUST 15th, 1947 is the birthday of free India. It marks for her the end of an old era, the beginning of a new age. But we can also make it by our life and acts as a free nation an important date in a new age opening for the whole world, for the political, social, cultural and spiritual future of humanity. August 15th is my own birthday and it is naturally gratifying to me that it should have assumed this vast significance. I take this coincidence, not as a fortuitous accident, but as the sanction and seal of the Divine Force that guides my steps on the work with which I began life, the beginning of its full fruition.

Chapter VIII "Karmayogin” - Chandernagore - Pondicherry 1909-1910 AFTER his acquittal, Sri Aurobindo wrote a letter to the Editor of the Bengalee, a popular daily newspaper of that time, to express his gratitude to all those who had sent in contributions to the fund opened by his sister Sarojini for his legal defence. The letter is beautifully worded, simple yet moving. Here is the text: Sir, Will you kindly allow me to express through your columns my deep sense of gratitude to all who have helped me in my hour of trial? Of the innumerable friends known and unknown, who have contributed each his mite to

Chapter XI Beginnings of the Ashram 1920-1926 ON APRIL 24, 1920, the Mother arrived at Pondicherry for the second time, never to depart again. Paul Richard came with her and she was also accompanied by Miss Dorothy Hodgson, an English lady who had known the Mother in France and had stayed with her in Japan. Dorothy later came to be known as 'Datta', shortened from Vasavadatta, the name given to her by Sri Aurobindo. After staying for a few days in hotels, they moved to a rented house at 1, rue St. Martin, called the 'Bayoud House'. Sri Aurobindo was still residing at the 'Guest House' in rue Francois Martin. Soon the relationship resumed
