Beach 6: The Guru

Wave 1: Miraculous lineage of mystic Masters

Sankara Ramanuja Desika Madhva Raghavendra Sai Baba (of Shirdi) Ramakrishna

Aurobindo Ramana Paramacharya

Sri Aurobindo (1872 - 1950).The greatest exponent of the integral spiritual ideal taught in the Rgveda, the early Upanishads and the gItA. Author of the magnum opus of twentieth century Hindu spiritual writing, called 'The Life Divine' and of the poetic counterpart of this, called 'Savitri', a poem twice as long as Paradise Lost. In these and in his numerous other writings he teaches a profoundly spiritual process called Integral Yoga. He has left innumerable records of his mystic experimentations which surpass the grandest sophistications that modern science and mathematics can muster. The ASram that he founded at Pondicherry has an international following and was guided by The Mother (1878 - 1973) ever since Aurobindo made himself unavailable for direct public interaction.
