Book Description
About the Book

On Education contains writings and conversations of the Mother on education and self – developments. The book includes essays on the meaning and principles of an integral education, letters on learning and teaching given to members of the Sri Aurobindo Ashram’s school and its Department of Physical Education, conversations with teachers, and three short plays. This is an essential book for those who wish to understand the Mother’s vision of education.

“True education must reveal what is already present in the developing being and make it blossom. Just as flowers blossom in the sun, children blossom in joy. It goes without saying that joy does not mean weakness, disorder and confusion. But a luminous kindliness which encourages the good and does not severely insist on the bad.”

“School is just a preparation to make the students capable of thinking, studying, progressing and becoming intelligent if they can – all that must be done during the entire life and not only in school.”
