The Mother Abides Final Reflections (1973–1983) — Nolini Kanta Gupta
The Mother Abides is the title given to our new publication, a collection of writings and talks by Nolini Kanta Gupta from the final decade of his life. They begin from the time of the Mother’s passing in November 1973 and their subject is often framed around an understanding of the Mother’s work on earth and how that work continues after her departure. As Nolini-da was a senior member of the Ashram and a respected exponent of Sri Aurobindo’s Integral Yoga, these final reflections served as a kind of guidance to the community. Often first addressed to the students in his classes, these pieces focus on the future – of the Ashram, of India, and of the world – and the words both admonish and encourage.

Sri Aurobindo's Philosophy of Evolution  — Kireet Joshi Integral Yoga of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother A Brief Introduction — Kireet Joshi The Veda in the Light of Sri Aurobindo A Brief Introduction — Kireet Joshi Publisher: Popular Media, Delhi
The first part of this booklet provides a short introduction to an interpretation of the Vedas based on Sri Aurobindo’s discovery of a body of profound psychological thought and experience behind its language and imagery. The second part, which is the transcript of a lecture delivered in Auroville, outlines the corpus of Vedic knowledge, some of the interpretations provided by scholars and pundits, and the unique importance for the future which Sri Aurobindo gave to the recovery of this ancient wisdom.

It is quite natural for the vital nature of man to desire success, well-being, vital fulfilment in our lives. This involves the achievement of pleasure and the avoidance of suffering. This actually acts as the motive spring or impulsion behind our actions in the vast majority of cases. We have framed our ethical concepts to incorporate the satisfaction of these impulsions, and thus have created a measure for our ethical framework that insists on such achievement.
Sri Aurobindo points out, however, that ethics as a conceptual principle can be seen, and should be recognized, in the absence of specific attainment of desire. In fact, an ethical framework tied to overt or subtle achievement of pleasure or avoidance of suffering is more in the nature of a bargain than a truly ethical act…
Human law is tailored to more or less conform to the expectation of desire and mete out punishment for acts which cause pain and suffering, and reward those who act within the framework or who have been victimized by acts deemed worthy of punishment… Thus, we have created the cosmic law in the image of our human law, and turned it, in our normal view of the matter, into a system of meted out rewards and punishments.
