Read here a few translations of Sri Aurobindo from Vyasa’s Mahabharata including a sample of the “free poetic paraphrase” of the story of Vidula.
In our ‘All Life is Yoga’ series, this month we take up the theme – Work and Yoga. In addition to relevant selections from different volumes of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother, our offerings also include insightful writings by M.P. Pandit, Shobha Mitra, Prema Nandkumar, Martha Orton, M.S. Srinivasan, Divyanshi Chugh, Narendra Murty and a video recording of a book discussion with Larry Seidlitz.
Sri Aurobindo considers closely the situation from which the Gita arises, “in its largest bearings as a type of human life and even of all world-existence.”
The Mahakali aspect is also our inspiration of this ‘Book of the Month’ feature — a reading of ‘Abhaya’ by Saiswaroopa Iyer in the light of Sri Aurobindo.
Dr. Bhawana Badhe and Sushrut Badhe share with us the unique focus and pedagogy of Krishna’s Butter project, which introduces children and youth to the practical wisdom of Bhagavad Gita.
We feature a special essay by Sri Aurobindo from Bande Mataram in which he writes about the birth and growth of Indian nationalism invoking the advent and avatāric work of Sri Krishna. The selection of this piece is most appropriate since this month we also celebrate Krishna Janmashtami.
