A Pilgrims Quest for the Highest and the Best - Preface


This book is primarily a critical examination of the denials that stand in the way of the quest for the highest and the best. Eventually, it is an introduction to the theme of the supramental manifestation in Matter. This theme, which covers the main substance of the works of Sri Aurobindo (1872-1950) and the Mother (1878-1973), invites the contemporary pilgrim of today to continue his quest. The highest and the best are, according to Sri Aurobindo and the Mother, attainable by means of their Integral Yoga, which is new in its objects and its methods, although it incorporates the lessons of the past yogic efforts of humanity.

It is hoped this book will lead the reader to study the works of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother. The most important works of Sri Aurobindo are: 'The Synthesis of Yoga', 'The Life Divine', 'Record of Yoga', 'The Supramental Manifestation Upon Earth', 'The Secret of the Veda', 'Upanishads', 'Essays on the Gita' and 'Savitri'. The most important works of the Mother are: 'Prayers and Meditations', 'Conversations', 'Questions and Answers', and 'Mother's Agenda' (13 volumes).
