Sri Aurobindo’s Vision and the 20th Century by Rod Hemsell

Sri Aurobindo’s Vision and the 20th Century Physics and the Philosophy of Evolution Nature’s Dialectic Few among humanity have yet undertaken the challenge, availed the opportunity, transcended their conventional mental formulas, and achieved the clarity of intention necessary to see the vision of Sri Aurobindo. Fewer have gone so far as to integrate his vision into their thought and life, and so to understand it fully, to grasp its historical significance, and to realize its force, its evolutionary potential. Therefore it can truly be said that Sri Aurobindo belongs to the future.1 And yet his vision, and the thought forms…

Sri Aurobindo and Transpersonal Psychology – by Michael Miovic, MD

ABSTRACT: This article provides an overview of Sri Aurobindo’s psychological thought and system of Integral Yoga Psychology (IYP).

Emphasis is placed on the psychic being (soul) and overhead planes of consciousness, as these are central to IYP’s psycho-spiritual method of transforming the ego. Finally, implications for transpersonal development and transpersonal…

Transcript of Matthijs' AUM2005 talk: "Sri Aurobindo’s Theory of Knowledge" Talk by Matthijs Cornelissen Port Townsend, WA June 11, 2005 Good Morning, Why do we think we know? What I want to discuss this morning is something that underlies what we have discussed the previous two days and I hope that together we can go to a greater depth and get into some of the absolute mystery that is behind everything that we do and say. It is a mystery, and this is another embarrassment of speaking, because we know much less than we think. I guess I should talk…
