BiographiesBiographies of Sri Aurobindo and The Mother
These biographical accounts attempt to provide historically accurate information about the lives of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother. Although both Sri Aurobindo and the Mother consistently turned all admiration and attention away from themselves and towards the inner Divine, still we cannot help but wonder from what origins such supreme personalities manifested.
From a letter of Sri Aurobindo:
"I see that you have persisted in giving a biography—is it really necessary or useful? The attempt is bound to be a failure, because neither you nor anyone else knows anything at all of my life; it has not been on the surface for men to see."
From a conversation with the Mother:
"If anyone ever wanted to write about me, the first thing I would say is: NOT ONE WORD about my personal life—not a word."
