The Interactive Self-Discovery Series

The Series comprises of four beautifully produced books written in an experiential and interactive style with passages, worksheets and exercises. Published in 2000, 2001 and 2002, and reprinted since then, the four books compiled by Ameeta Mehra carry selections from the writings of Sri Aurobindo and The Mother, alongwith self-reflective worksheets and exercises. Each book is complete in itself and has been aesthetically created to take the reader into the knowledge, experience and practice of Self-Discovery and Mastery.

These books are available with The Gnostic Centre and may be ordered online. The books are available also at Sri Aurobindo Ashram bookshop (at Delhi and Puducherry), and are being distributed by Rupa through bookshops around India, as well.

The Mother on Education: From Reflection to Action

Published in 2004, this book was compiled to mark the Mother’s 125th birth anniversary, on the request of National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE), and has been distributed by NCTE to all teacher-education institutes around India. It was even translated into Hindi for a greater reach.

The book has passages from The Mother, relevant for all educators (including parents), focusing on diverse issues related to bringing up and educating a child. The compilation includes a number of ideas on how to train the various aspects of a child’s personality, as well as certain reflective exercises, to enable the educator’s own growth and practice.
