Product description

Product Description

What is the meaning of our existence in the cosmic scheme?
Is there a divine purpose in life or is it merely the mechanical playing-out of competing “greedy genes”?
Do we live in a blind universe aimlessly running its course from Big Bang to Big Crunch or is there a higher purpose in evolution?
If there is a conscious guiding intent, why does it allow evil to exist?
How do we transcend the limits of a blind “scientism” locking itself out of a vaster understanding by refusing to admit the existence of any factors outside of its self-imposed limits of “scientific” verifiability? Can these questions be tackled without landing in the other extreme of religious dogma?
Is our planet Earth special in the universe?
Do we human beings have a special role in evolution?

The Belgian writer Georges Van Vrekhem explores these and other timeless questions in the light of Sri Aurobindo's evolutionary concept and casts a refreshing new look on issues that have been the lasting preoccupation of seekers throughout the ages.

This book contains the edited versions of eleven talks that Georges Van Vrekhem gave in Auroville in 2010 and 2011:

• Adam Kadmon and the Evolution
• The Development of Sri Aurobindo’s Thought
• Preparing for the Miraculous
• What Arjuna Saw: the Dark Side of the Force
• 2012 and 1956: Doomsday?
• Being Human and the Copernican Evolution
• Bridges across the Afterlife
• Sri Aurobindo’s Descent into Death
• Sri Aurobindo and the Big Bang
• Theodicy: “Nature Makes no Mistakes”
• The Kalki Avatar.

Georges Van Vrekhem (°1935) is a Flemish speaking Belgian who writes in English. He became known in his country as a journalist, poet and playwright. For some time he was the artistic manager of a professional theatre company. He gave numerous talks and presentations in America, Europe and India.
He became first acquainted with the works of Sri Auro­bindo and the Mother in 1964. In 1970 he joined the Sri Aurobindo Ashram in Pondicherry, and in 1978 he became a member of Auroville, where he is still living and writing.

He wrote:

Beyond Man, the Life and Work of Sri Aurobindo and The Mother (1997)

The Mother, the Story of Her Life (2000)

Overman, the Intermediary between the Human and the Supramental Being (2000)

Patterns of the Present, in the Light of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother (2001)

The Mother: the Divine Shakti (2003)

Hitler and His God – The Background to the Nazi Phenomenon (2006)

Evolution, Religion, and the Unknown God (2011)

Books by him are translated into Dutch, French, German, Italian, Russian, and Spanish. He was awarded the Sri Aurobindo Puraskar for 2006 by the Government of Bengal.
