Dear Friends and Well-wishers of Overman Foundation,
We are happy to announce that Overman Foundation has taken up the distribution of Georges Van Vrekhem’s last book “The New Spirituality” published recently.
The late Georges Van Vrekhem (1935—2012), was a Flemish speaking Belgian journalist, poet and playwright who became acquainted with the teachings of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother in 1964. He joined Sri Aurobindo Ashram as an inmate in 1970 and shifted to Auroville in 1978. A recipient of the prestigious ‘Sri Aurobindo Puraskar’ he is best known for his books like Beyond Man, The Mother: The Story of Her Life, Overman—The Intermediary Being between the Human and the Supramental Being, Patterns of the Present and Hitler and His God. His books have been translated into French, German, Italian, Spanish and Russian.
“The New Spirituality” contains eleven unpublished essays on Sri Aurobindo and The Mother, two articles on how to write about Sri Aurobindo and The Mother, three on Auroville and two on World War II. It also has two In Memoriams (Satprem and Amal Kiran), and four autobiographical texts.
The essays deal with topics such as The Aurobindonian Revolution; Sri Aurobindo and the Future of Humanity; True Philosophy; Matter; The Closing of the Western Mind; The Fall; The Integration of the Four Varnas and the New Dharma; Overman: the Transitional Being; The Metamorphosis of an Avatar; Aswapati and Sri Aurobindo and On Occultism. The two articles on World War II – Lest We Forget and Churchill’s Mission – reveal fairly unknown aspects of the work of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother. Very touching are Georges’ texts about his own development, such as Moments that do not fade – Meeting The Mother.
Published by Stichting Aurofonds in a limited edition, “The New Spirituality” comprises 286 pages and is available at a price of Rs. 300 (Three Hundred) only. Please note that this book along with his “Preparing for the Miraculous” is not available at SABDA.
