After discovering a very interesting short documentary based on the thinking of Indian yogi and spiritual writer Sri Aurobindo, and his spiritual collaborator Mirra Richard, who he called “Mother,” here is the film for your enjoyment.
Sri Aurobindo (1872-1950) was a leader in India’s independence movement and, after experiencing mystical and spiritual events while in prison after British authorities silenced him, turned to spirituality.
His major philosophical book was “The Life Divine.”
He is known for what he called integral yoga, of which he said, “The one aim of (my) yoga is an inner self-development by which each one who follows it can in time discover the One self in all and evolve a higher consciousness than the mental, a spiritual and supramental consciousness which will transform and divinize human nature.”
He is also known for writing “Savitri”- an epic poem of some 24,000 lines.
