Sri Aurobindo

On August 15, 1872, Sri Aurobindo, a poet, thinker, freedom fighter, yogi and spiritual leader was born in Calcutta. He was sent to England for education when he was seven years old. His father wanted him to keep away from the Indian and Eastern Culture, rather he wanted to anglicised him absolutely. He attended King’s College, Cambridge, and St. Paul’s School in London where he mastered English, Latin, and Greek and also learnt French, German, Italian and Spanish.



Mirra Alfassa was born on February 21, 1878, in Paris. She was a student at the Academy Julian, where she excelled as an artist, pianist, and writer. She travelled to Tlemcen, Algeria, in 1905 and 1906 to study occultism with the adept Max Theon and his wife. Her main focus, however, was on spiritual growth. She created a group of spiritual seekers in Paris and spoke to a variety of groups.
