reading & booksigning for "The Lives of Sri Aurobindo"
Thursday, June 19 at 7:00 pm
Since his death in 1950, Sri Aurobindo has been known primarily as a yogi and a philosopher of spiritual evolution. However, the years spent in yogic retirement were preceded by nearly four decades of rich public and intellectual work. Peter Heehs, one of the founders of the Sri Aurobindo Ashram Archives, is the first to relate all the aspects of the yogi’s life. The result is "The Lives of Sri Aurobindo," the most comprehensive, thorough, and balanced study to date of Sri Aurobindo Ghose's remarkable life and thought.
Peter Heehs was born and educated in the United States but has lived in India since 1971. One of the founders of the Sri Aurobindo Ashram Archives, he is currently a member of the editorial board of the Complete Works of Sri Aurobindo, and has published many books and articles.
