Sri Aurobindo- An Essay.
Sri Aurobindo is not as popular as Tagore or other patriots, scholars and yogis but in his philosophy, learning, and knowledge he was far beyond others of his kind; in fact he is a unique and we can really say there are any people of his kind.
Sri Aurobindo though a born Bengali scaled in knowledge and thought process on the global and universal level. Today his thoughts and ideas are implemented everywhere through direct or indirect influence in many ways. Sri Aurobindo’s literary work is so deep and concerning that one stands in awe before this ocean of knowledge if I am permitted to use such a hyperbole.
Sri Aurobindo, I prefer to read him the best when he writes on yoga and divine things but he had much to say on topics like molecule, scientific research, laws of physics, music, etc on which he never expressed his detailed knowledge in any of his works but gave us flashes and glimpses of his divine ideas. However, he wrote in detail about English literature and poetry and there is a book called “Future Poetry” which I love to read all the time. In this book, he writes about the nature of poetry, its inspiration, the inspiration and ability of English poets, etc.
Sri Aurobindo did not claim to be a philosopher, nor do I think was his goal to be one, but in his work “Life Divine”, he turns out to a philosopher par excellence when expresses his thoughts in the line of the Vedas and Upanishads and takes them beyond into his own world of Supramental philosophy.
There are many other scholarly works of Sri Aurobindo and his poetry is a mass of contribution to world English literature and writing which we heartily revere and cherish. In his writings we get eternal ideas and knowledge expressed in a beautiful and esoteric cum practical way.
I hope this essay in English is useful for your reference.
