I am reproducing in the following some relevant portions from my foreword to Jugal Kishore Mukherjee’s The Ascent of Sight in Sri Aurobindo’s Savitri published in 2001 by the Sri Aurobindo International Centre of Education.

Jugal Mukherjee traces the entire curve running through space and time, as well as entering into the domains wherefrom arrives the true sight which supports everything.

The Foreword follows:...

These qoutes and commentaries bear deep reflection. I do not remember writing a review of Jugal Kishore's Ascent of Vision. I reviewed his next 2 books, The Practice of the Integral Yoga and the Mysteries of Life, Death and Causality. DB
