Sri Aurobindo, The complete works of Sri Aurobindo


Sri Aurobindo Ashram Publication Dept., Pondicherry 1997


A pioneer of India's freedom movement, poet, seer and the exponent of Integral Yoga, Sri Aurobindo (1872-1950) visualized the possibility of humanity fulfilling its evolutionary destiny through a process of transformation. Imbued in peaceful meditation, like an ancient rishi, he saw divinity in the universe at large and spoke of Man's merger with the Cosmic Spirit. He declared that the Supreme became a supermind which, in turn, descended to become mind and matter; and that now a process of ascent was underway by which matter has become mind, only to evolve again into a supermind before being transformed into the Supreme once again. The supermind state, Sri Aurobindo contended, would be reached by the practice of Integral Yoga (purna yoga).

Sri Aurobindo's spiritual experiences find ample expression in his lofty poetry and sublime philosophy. His remarkable works, like the Life Divine, the Synthesis of Yoga, the Human Cycle, and the Ideal of Human Unity present an analysis of history: both spiritual and chronological, and trace the process of unfoldment of this gnostic mystery; while his epic, Savitri discovers to us the manifold occult realities beneath and above life as we know it.

Complete Works of Sri Aurobindo, in 35 volumes, is a fresh, uniform library edition, occasioned by Sri Aurobindo's 125 birth anniversary in 1997. Essentially an enlarged version of the earlier "Sri Aurobindo Birth Centenary Library" (30 volumes, 1972), it embodies about 2,500 additional pages of his hitherto-unpublished writings that, notably, include his Vedic and linguistic studies; commentaries on Isha, Kena and other major Upanishads; writings on philosophy and yoga; and autobiographical writings --besides his letters, diary, and spiritual journal.

Er is geen tweeheid

als je ontspannen bent
in zelf-bewustzijn
is dat duidelijk.


  • Non-dualiteit - de grondeloze openheid

    Non-dualiteit is niet-tweeheid (Sanskriet: a-dvaita), de afwezigheid van scheidingen. Deze openheid vormt de kern van elke spiritualiteit en mystiek. Maar wat is non-dualiteit nu precies? Daarover gaat het nieuwe boek van Douwe Tiemersma. In zijn vorige boeken stond de non-dualiteit ook al centraal, maar nu laat hij stap voor stap zien wat non-dualiteit in de eigen ervaring betekent. Iedereen blijkt die ervaring te kennen en te waarderen.

  • Mediteren leren

    Dit boek geeft een handleiding bij het leren mediteren voor beginners en voor de gevorderden die nog eens bij het begin willen beginnen. Het uitgangspunt is de spontane meditatie, die iedereen af en toe heeft. 

  • Advaita Vedanta - de vraag naar het zelf-zijn

    De actuele vraag ‘wie we eigenlijk zijn’ was het onderwerp van een symposium aan de Erasmus Universiteit Rotterdam op 18 september 2000, waarin vooral de oude Upanishaden en de Advaita Vedânta aan het woord kwamen.

  • Satsang

    Dit boek is een bloemlezing van satsangs gehouden door Douwe Tiemersma. Bijeenkomsten waarin hij als advaitaleraar de kern van het advaita inzicht doorgeeft.
