The book – SRI AUROBINDO: THE GRAND SYNTHESIS written by Dr. ANANDA REDDY will be released on 1 November 2022 at Unity Pavilion, Auroville, Pondicherry.
SRI AUROBINDO: THE GRAND SYNTHESIS presents the essence of about ten works of Sri Aurobindo.
The author, Dr. Ananda Reddy has highlighted a few ideas from each volume and presented them in a crisp but simple manner. Sri Aurobindo’s aspect of being a Grand Synthesis of East and West, of Spirit and Matter and of all that seems contrary in the world has been well brought out by the author in a few pages.
It is indeed a befitting tribute to Sri Aurobindo on his 150th Birth Anniversary.
Having completed his studies at Sri Aurobindo International Centre of Education, Puducherry in 1969, Dr. Ananda Reddy joined Auroville in 1971 and participated in its early efforts toward Human Unity.
He has travelled widely in India as well as in the USA, Germany, Spain, Italy, The Netherlands, Russia, Japan, Thailand and Singapore and delivered extensive lectures and conducted workshops on the vision and works of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother.
He has authored 10 volumes of books on Sri Aurobindo’s The Life Divine and one on Savitri. About 20 volumes are in the pipeline for publication.
Dr Reddy has to his credit about 2000 hours of audio-video recording on the works and vision of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother.
For his contributions, he has been given Sri Aurobindo Puraskar and Auroratna awards.
