A selection of Sri Aurobindo's poems for young readers. In Sri Aurobindo's view poetry is primarily a medium of illumination, beauty and delight. "Its function", he wrote, "is not to teach truth of any particular kind... but to embody beauty in word and give delight".

Poetry was Sri Aurobindo's own chosen field of artistic expression:

  • as a youth in England he penned lyrics and sonnets
  • as a teacher in Baroda he wrote longer narrative poems
  • and as a seer and yogi in Pondicherry he continued writing poetry, mostly mystic and spiritual, during the last thirty years of his life.

Poetry was the outer vehicle through which he expressed the beauty, delight and vision of his vast spiritual experience. His comprehensive range of mystic and spiritual sensibility and experience is expressed in a wide variety of sonnets, lyric, dramatic, narrative and epic poems.

The purpose of these selections is to introduce the young readers to the new metaphysic and new aesthetic revealed in the poetry of Sri Aurobindo and to share with them the beauty and delight and the intellectual thrill which often overwhelms a sensitive reader of Sri Aurobindo's poetry.

Only shorter and simpler poems have been chosen for these selections. For those to whom this is the first introduction to Sri Aurobindo's poems, a Glossary has been included at the end of these books defining the more difficult words in the texts.

Extract:

I made an assignation with the Night; In the abyss was fixed our rendezvous: In my breast carrying God's deathless light I came her dark and dangerous heart to woo. I left the glory of the illumined Mind And the calm rapture of the divinised soul And travelled through a vastness dim and blind To the grey shore where her ignorant waters roll. I walk by the chill wave through the dull slime And still that weary journeying knows no end; Lost is the lustrous godhead beyond Time, There comes no voice of the celestial Friend, And yet I know my footprints' track shall be A pathway towards Immortality.

- Sri Aurobindo

About the Author:

Sri Aurobindo was an Indian/Hindu nationalist, scholar, poet, mystic, evolutionary philosopher, yogi and guru. After a short political career in which he became one of leaders of the early movement for the freedom of India from British rule, Sri Aurobindo turned to the development and practice of a new spiritual path which he called the "integral yoga," the aim of which was to further the evolution of life on earth by establishing a high level of spiritual consciousness which he called the Supermind that would represent a divine life.

Sri Aurobindo wrote prolifically in English on his spiritual philosophy and practice, on social and political development, on Indian culture including extensive commentaries and translations of ancient Indian scriptures, on literature and poetry including the writing of much spiritual poetry.
