An Analysis of Sri Aurobindo's
'The Life Divine'
by Roy Posner
New Age author and Mother's Service Society researcher Roy Posner presents a chapter-by-chapter analysis of Sri Aurobindo's metaphysical treatise The Life Divine, perhaps the most profound book ever written on the nature of spirit, creation, life, evolution, and human potential. (2015)
"An illuminating analysis of The Life Divine."
"I am quite moved by your analysis of the great book "Life Divine" by Shri Aurobindo. Never have I come across such a profound analysis of the book."
"This book is an excellent introduction to the profoundly insightful works of the Indian sage Sri Aurobindo. Aurobindo is presently not well known to western readers, but I believe this will change in the near future. He definitely is one of the "enlightened ones" whose vision serves to bridge and unify eastern mysticism with western empiricism demonstrating how both are essential to the coming world order. Aurobindo is a difficult writer to penetrate however and this is where Posner provides the invaluable service of making him more accessible. Highly recommended!"
"What excellent work the analysis of [Sri Aurobindo's] "The Life Divine" is! I'm sure that the "Overview Opening" opens the door to many thousands perhaps who might turn away from it otherwise."
"Last night I googled "aurobindo" and saw your web-page on analysis and summary of The Life Divine and had a look-see. And man, was I excited!! It all makes sense because of the way you present Sri A. writings. ... I found your analysis, your unpacking of Sri. A.'s very IMPORTANT WORK spot on!"
"WONDERFUL to be working through your Life Divine studies. Thank you for the time, effort and generosity of making that available. I'm on my fourth time through and every time it gets more applicable to the daily stories. For you to be able to write like that makes it more digestible and an easier task so thank you very much."
"Excellent "Translation" of Sri Aurobindo's Master Work -- This is one of the most helpful books I've found in helping me understand the complex writings of Sri Aurobindo, one of the brightest minds ever known. Sri Aurobindo's "ideas" are not particularly difficult to grasp, but his writing often uses a great many lengthy sentences, making it difficult to parse. Posner's excellent "translation" of this huge masterwork into something more closely resembling plain English is a major contribution to the literature of Indian philosophy in general, and the particular school of thought to which Sri Aurobindo belongs. Highly recommended!"
"A lifetime of thoughtful reading awaits you."
