We are pleased to announce the release of


Volume 2 (1934-1935)



by Satprem

Sri Aurobindo to Dilip, (1934-1935), is the second of four volumes of correspondence between Sri Aurobindo and Dilip Kumar Roy, singer, musician, poet and writer. In 1928, Dilip, whom Sri Aurobindo called "a friend and a son", became the latter's disciple. A massive correspondence ensued - countless letters from Sri Aurobindo and a few more from Mother, extending till 1951, and published unabridged here for the first time. The first volume was published in August 2003.

What shines through these letters is Sri Aurobindo's immense patience guiding Dilip Kumar Roy through his turbulence, his despondency, and nurturing with such tender care his latent talents and the infinite love Sri Aurobindo and Mother poured on the over-sensitive but exceptional Being for his full blossoming. Here reason's logic is countered with sounder logic. A gentle irony like a cool breeze blows away mind's cobwebs. No insistence to tow his line. No judgment, always clarity of vision. Comprehension. Compassion. Rarely a sigh escapes the Guru's lips, "It is only divine Love which can bear the burden I have to bear".

Mother or The New Species, part two of the trilogy on Mother by Satprem was long out of print. It is appearing now in a new revised translation. The first part, Mother or The Divine Materialism, was published in 2003 also in a new translation. How does one work out the transition to a new species? How does one create the new species? What is the nature of such a physiological transformation, and hence what is the nature of Matter itself, on which and in which we seem to move as if forever bound to some inescapable rut ratified by every certified scientist? Mother or The New Species follows, from 1950 to 1968, Mother's descent into the depths of the human body and the transition from the human species to another species leading her to the next mode of life on earth.
