Sri Aurobindo belongs to well-known Ghosh family of West Bengal in India. He was an extraordinary thinker who moved from deep meditation to sublime philosophy, from poetry to politics with incredible ease and mastery. He revealed unusual powers of intellect and a poetic genius of no mean order, apart from absorbing the very best of Western thoughts and literature, besides mastering Greek and Latin, successfully completed for the Civil Service Examination. He himself withdrawn from the political arena and devote himself completely to the life of spiritual contemplation and illumination. On 4th April 1910 he took up residence at Pondicherry. A hermitage was set up to discover the life divine, in collaboration with a French lady Mira Richard who later became renowned as The Mother (Sri Maa). This Ashram continues as a dynamic spritual center, well known all over the world. In this center, Sri Aurobindo became more and more absorbed in Yoga and Sadhana and became a focal point of the cosmos, a channel for Joy, Light and Life of the Eternal.
