Chapter by Chapter psychological understanding of The Life Divine

The Life Divine - By Dr. Soumitra Basu
The Life Divine, the magnum opus of Sri Aurobindo is the agenda of the New Age, the log book of the trajectory of Consciousness that aims to manifest the Highest Truth in its totality of Knowledge and Power in the present world of imperfection and chaos.
Is that possible? How can we be free from the chains of ignorance, suffering, falsehood and death in earthly life itself?
Religions have given solutions in other worlds. The Semitic traditions promised heavenly berths for virtuous lives. Shankaracharya opined that the world of human transactions was false and the Absolute was the only Truth that could be perceived. Buddhists agreed that the world was false but they considered that the perception of the Absolute was false too. For both the traditions, the only solution was not to be born again.
The world had to wait for a solution in earthly life itself. Sri Aurobindo for the first time gives that solution in The Life Divine. In the process, he charts a new, untrodden map of consciousness that leads to an evolutionary growth manifesting new and latent powers embodied in higher models of the human being.
He not only conceptualized the manifestation of a new species of homo sapiens that surpasses the present mental consciousness but also used his Yogic powers to activate the process so that we do not , miss the chance of evolutionary growth due to our own folly, ignorance and obstinacy.
In the process he triggers off the development of new schools of Yoga, Psychology, Development, Ethics, Metaphysics and Philosophy. He explains for the first time satisfactorily how the Infinite beyond Space and Time manifests as the finite within the constraints of Space and Time. He opens up a new trajectory of Consciousness.
The Life Divine, Sri Aurobindo's magnum opus and His blue-print for the human race is one of the most serious world-literature to study, deduce implications in life, yoga as well as in applied research. In status, it is a veritable Veda, a consummation of the human spiritual quest impregnated with the potentiality of the future. This book has been so long approached from philosophical, theological, mystical and spiritual perspectives. IIYP has undertaken a Chapter by Chapter psychological understanding of The Life Divine. No doubt this is a very difficult task as metaphysical concepts have to be manifested in psychological fields. This can only be possible because The Life Divine is not a mere theoretical construct but an experiential reality
