In Heart of Yoga, section 3 gives you the complete text of this great work both in the original Sanskrit and the English translation PLUS detailed commentary on the verses by Desikachar, incorporating the wisdom and insights given to him by his father.

The Life Divine

Sri Aurobindo. 1113 Pages. Lotus Light Publications

This is truly one of the spiritual classics. However, be warned that it is for the serious reader only. Sri Aurobinodo was one of the foremost thinkers and philosophers of his age - Cambridge University educated - and extremely profound in his spiritual teachings. He will stand well amongst any of the great philosophers of history. All the great spiritual themes are dealt with in this book profoundly and intensely. The Life Divine does not make easy reading as it was not written for light entertainment. It requires deep concentration, study and contemplation. In fact, you will probably only manage a few pages a day. However, if you are serious about deepening your spiritual insight and making true progress, then we heartily recommend The Life Divine.
