A Special Note

Sri Aurobindo, the sage of Pondicherry, was basically a poet, scholar and a philosopher. He was also a public figure and Pranayama practitioner. (Pranayama is the starting point of Yoga). Thus, the four Ps were the mainstay of his personality.

But it was the last ‘P’ ie Pranayama which really dominated the course of his life. Yoga is something which is not clearly visible on the surface. The life of a yogi may as well be compared to the tip of an iceberg. That means what one sees on the surface is a very small part of that which is lying buried underneath. As such, most of Sri Aurobindo’s life is hidden from the common man’s view.

However, we have been able to write about a few important incidents which speak for themselves. And these reflect the life-force and actions of that Mahayogi, Sri Aurobindo, who was an eminent poet and a great patriot too!
