Sri Aurobindo's Evolutionary Concept of Man* L. G. Chincholkar '"THE problem of human destiny has been engaging the minds of the A thinkers of the world throughout the ages. A search to know the facts behind the phenomena, a probe into the unknown reality of the existence of man and the world have been the subjects of ceaseless enquiry for all those who have not been content with the first view of things. The status of a man has a direct bearing upon his destiny. Is he a product of evolution or a directly implanted Adam or Eve by God? What is he at present, what would be his future ? How has he come to be what he is now? What, in general, is the past, present and fut

Sri Aurobindo's Life* Suniti Kumar Chatterji I SRI Aurobindo came into the world on 15 August 1872 and passed into the Great Beyond on 5 December 1950. He had thus lived and trod upon this earth for about seventy-eight years and three months. But before he joined the majority, by the glory of both his Thought and his Action in the living world, and by his Vision of the Unseen (glimpses of which out of the abundance of the Grace he had received from the Unseen, he brought within the ken of seeking souls), he had already become one of the Immortals of history. Sri Aurobindo has been one of the great band of divine choristers in the history of man, who h

Sri Aurobindo: Prophet of Indian Nationalism* Ramdhari Singh 'Dinkar' 'T'HE year Sri Aurobindo was born, Rimbaud published his Illumination. But that is irrelevant. What is relevant is that the year when Sri Aurobindo returned from England was also the year when Vivekananda sailed for the United States and the day when Sri Aurobindo was born became, after 75 years of course, the day of India's Independence. And the centenary year of Sri Aurobindo's birth has coincided with the Silver Jubilee celebration of our Independence. In India, Nationalism began as a cultural movement, the first emphasis being laid on a relentless opposition to the cultural influence of

Sri Aurobindo's Impact on Hindi Literature* Narendra Sharma ONE wonders why Sri Aurobindo's impact on Indian Literature in general and on Hindi literature in particular has not been as great as it should have been. In direct proportion to the greatness of his personality and work, his impact has been less than expected. One reason for this, perhaps, is that Sri Aurobindo's personality and work are too unique and great to be comprehended by the average Indian middle-class mind. This mind, the by-product of colonial rule, is nurtured on job-orientation, professional advancement, insecurity and fear on the one hand, and on the other, on revivalism, political ambit

Introduction Towards Sri Aurobindo's Birth Centenary WHEN people are with us still, we celebrate their birthdays with a recurrent accession of joy. When they are with us no more, we remember with due solemnity the anniversary of the day of passing. If after their demise they live long in our memories, when the centenary milestone is about to be reached, the death anniversary is by-passed as it were, and the birth centenary is celebrated. Thereafter it is usual to give particular importance only to the Jayanti or birth anniversary. The question may be posed: Why these anniversaries, and these centenary celebrations? Human memory is short, and caught as we a

The Problem of Human Unity* Olivier Lacombe The problem of human unity is twofold: structural and dynamic unity of human being, and unity of mankind throughout its history and its cultural and biological differentiations. These two aspects of the problem are distinct yet interdependent: it is wise not to mix them up, nor to dissociate them. On the other hand, man's unity is the oneness in complexity: God alone is absolutely one and simple. But complexity necessarily brings together the idea of a wealth of being and a risk of rupture. Further, man's unity is at the same time a fundamental datum of his existence and a scheme to be developed and achieved by me

Sri Aurobindo's Aesthetics* V. Raghavan ALTHOUGH Sri Aurobindo wrote extensively on the Gita, the Veda and the Upanishads, and on Yoga and philosophical subjects, and subjects of wider and more general interest like Civilisation and Culture, his creative work as a poet, his literary productions in the form of metrical trans-creations of Sanskrit poems and plays, and his critical writings in which he analysed poets and poetry and evaluated Vyasa, Valmiki and Kalidasa, and reviewed the whole panorama of the poetry of Europe from Homer to the recent moderns including the Indo-Anglians, mark him out pre-eminently as a poet with a full mastery and knowledge of the art and
