The philospohy of the Vedanta was an integral vision of life. In its view no area of human activity, including politics, can be fully understood without an insight into the source and goal of life itself.
Sri Aurobindo wrote "All political ideals must have relation to the temperament and past history of the race. The genius of India is separate from that of any other race."
This book presents the "New Ideal" advocated by Sri Aurobindo ninety years ago. Though the roots of the ideal are ancient, it is of striking relevance to the problems of politics today.
