This book has brought together Sri Aurobindo’s words on Indian culture and Dharma and the Essential Spirit behind it which have then been conscientiously interpreted. The purpose of this interpretation has been to elucidate those profound thoughts of Sri Aurobindo which alone can tell us the profound and true reasons behind the various outer expressions that our culture had used in the past and for the ups and downs it has undergone in this effort of self-expression. It is only by so knowing – and this cannot be done on the surface but only by sympathetically entering into its fundamental spirit – that we can understand the profounder truths hidden behind the outer forms of this culture and their necessity in their own time (when they were in vogue) – something, naturally, beyond the reach of the modern surface materialistic consciousness – and adopt a more balanced and more just attitude in this matter.
Note: For those ordering the set of 3+1 volumes of Selections from the Complete Works of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother + The Greatness of Indian Culture and Sanatana Dharma, there is no need to order this book separately.
