Yoga used in a world of action, for action, not for renouncing but for transforming our lives. This is what makes Sri Aurobindo stand apart in his spiritual outlook and attainment.

Ancient Indian civilisation is not something over and done with, relegated to the past – it continues to live, sustaining its spirit, waiting to be rediscovered and given newer forms. This book tries to establish a link between every subject and the method by which the ancients approached them – individual and yet, part of a whole. Historical and yet not burdened with facts and figures, the book is lyrical in style and profusely illustrated, lending a deep perspective to the ancient world and looking for lessons to make a glorious future.
Until the Next Time… is a collection of Editorials written by Shonar and published in a Sri Aurobindo Society e-journal called Next Future spanning over ten years. It picks from everyday incidents, gives the banal a deeper insight, throws light on the path ahead. While it is personal to the author, by drawing from human experience, it is simultaneously universal in appeal, allowing each one to identify with a thought, an idea, a moment, a shared experience. Historical and yet not burdened with facts and figures, the book is lyrical in style and profusely illustrated, lending a deep perspective to the ancient world and looking for lessons to make a glorious future.
A compilation of Sri Aurobindo’s speeches and writings and the Mother’s quotations, it is hoped the book will inspire the Youth of India to serve their Motherland and raise her people to heights far beyond anything achieved in the past.
