In the words of the Mother: ‘Anyway, we have now arrived at a certitude, since there is already a beginning of realisation. We have the proof that in certain conditions the ordinary state of humanity can be exceeded and a new state of consciousness worked out which enables at the very least a conscious relation between mental and supramental man.
‘It can be affirmed with certainty that there will be an intermediate specimen between the mental and the supramental being, a kind of overman [surhomme] who will still have the qualities and in part the nature of man, which means that he will still belong in his most external form to the human being of animal origin, but that he will transform his consciousness sufficiently to belong, in his realisation and activity, to a new race, a race of overmen [surhommes].
‘This species may be considered a transitional species, for it is to be foreseen that it will discover the means of producing new beings without going through the old animal method, and it is these beings—who will have a truly spiritual birth—who will constitute the elements of the new race, the suprametal race. So we could call overmen whose who, because of their origin, still belongs to the old method of generation but who, because of their accomplishment, are in conscious and active contact with the new world of supramental realisation.’
Overman Foundation embarks on the mission to inculcate the ‘urge’ to rise over our mundane aspects of life and delve deeper into our inner ‘I’. The Foundation reaches out to the society with its sole aim of conceiving species of Overman –a transitory state in the creation of Superman. The association firmly believes that it is the duty of every individual to empower himself /herself with an urge for seeking the divine. One needs to replenish herself/himself amidst the trivialities of our surroundings and reach out to a knowledge seeking, a prerequisite to be a ‘Superman’. The Foundation painstakingly indulges in this knowledge seeking through knowledge sharing of Aurobindonian philosophy.
All members of the extended spiritual family of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother are cordially invited to our platform.

The time has come for the application of spirituality in life. What better source is there for this than the writings of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother? It is therefore heartening to know that an attempt is being made to bring the thought and consciousness of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother into the daily and mundane activities of life. My best wishes to the Overman [Foundation] for this endeavour.
