For the ‘Book of the Month’ we again highlight Nirodbaran’s magnificent ‘Twelve Years with Sri Aurobindo’. The focus this time is on his delightful description of Sri Aurobindo’s suppertime, his second and last meal of the day.
A most divine nobility and a perfectly sincere humility are the key highlights of the adorable personality of Sri Aurobindo which we see presented in this wonderful narration by Nirodbaran. This talk was given on June 12, 1970 at Sri Aurobindo International Centre of Education and was first published in Mother India.
Reading Nirodbaran’s narration of the divine qualities of Sri Aurobindo’s personality, one is reminded of the description Sri Aurobindo once gave of an Aryan gentleman. India’s rebirth and regeneration requires such character, such nobility in our youth; our national education must work toward this goal.
