This book provides a sadhak’s view of life inside the Sri Aurobindo Ashram during the Mother’s time. It describes the Ashram’s character and atmosphere, its activities, the development of its various departments and services, and its system of education. The author integrates many examples from the lives of sadhaks as he writes about spirituality in action and the type of sadhana practised in the Ashram. Other chapters portray how the Mother worked to develop the consciousness of each individual and how the Ashram represents her effort to bring all facets of life under the influence of the Divine. Later chapters deal with the impact of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother’s force on world events and human evolution. First published in 1965, this new edition is slightly enlarged by the addition of an appendix.
