SRI AUROBINDO'S WRITINGS In 1997, the Sri Aurobindo Ashram began to publish the Complete Works of Sri Aurobindo in a uniform library edition. Twenty-six volumes have been issued thus far; the remaining ones will come out over the next few years. Upon completion, there will be 37 volumes (originally 35 volumes were planned). The Complete Works will contain all the writings published earlier in the 30-volume Sri Aurobindo Birth Centenary Library, as well as around 4000 pages of new texts. Each published volume can be viewed and downloaded in PDF format. At the end of the list below is a zipped file containing all the PDFs available for download. As volumes continue to be published, they will be made available here. All texts are copyright Sri Aurobindo Ashram Trust and are only for personal use only. Unauthorised reproduction or distribution in any form, including material and electronic, is prohibited.
