 +
 
 +
''“It is not by books that Sri Aurobindo ought to be studied but by subjects—what he has said on the Divine, on Unity, on religion, on evolution, on education, on self perfection, on supermind, etc., etc.”
 +
''
 +
 
 +
''“If you want to know what Sri Aurobindo has said on a given subject, you must at least read all he has written on that subject. You will then see that he seems to have said the most contradictory things. But when one has read everything and understood a little, one sees that all the contradictions complement one another and are organised and unified in an integral synthesis.”

=The education of a human being should begin at birth and continue throughout his life.=
 +
 
 +
Education to be complete must have five principal aspects corresponding to the five principal activities of the human being the physical, the vital the mental, the psychic and the spiritual. Usually, these phases of education follow chronologically the growth of the individual; this, however, does not mean that one of them should replace another, but that all must continue, completing one another until the end of his life.

 +
The three foundational principles of Integral Education:
 +
 
 +
1. Nothing can be taught - The teacher in Integral Education is a helper and guide who shows the child how to acquire knowledge by helping him to seek it from within.
  
# the [[Physical Education|physical]],

2. The mind has to be consulted in its own growth - The child blossoms according to his own nature and not according to the image set by the parent or teacher.

3. To work from the near to the far - Education begins from understanding the immediate realms and gradually moving to ideas and images alien to the physical surroundings.

The aim of this page is to read the works of Sri Aurobindo and The Mother and apply it in our lives. We read through various topics to delve deeper in each of them. Here is what The Mother says about how to read the works of Sri Aurobindo.

“It is not by books that Sri Aurobindo ought to be studied but by subjects—what he has said on the Divine, on Unity, on religion, on evolution, on education, on self perfection, on supermind, etc., etc.”

“If you want to know what Sri Aurobindo has said on a given subject, you must at least read all he has written on that subject. You will then see that he seems to have said the most contradictory things. But when one has read everything and understood a little, one sees that all the contradictions complement one another and are organised and unified in an integral synthesis.”

The education of a human being should begin at birth and continue throughout his life.

Education to be complete must have five principal aspects corresponding to the five principal activities of the human being the physical, the vital the mental, the psychic and the spiritual. Usually, these phases of education follow chronologically the growth of the individual; this, however, does not mean that one of them should replace another, but that all must continue, completing one another until the end of his life.

The three foundational principles of Integral Education:

1. Nothing can be taught - The teacher in Integral Education is a helper and guide who shows the child how to acquire knowledge by helping him to seek it from within.

2. The mind has to be consulted in its own growth - The child blossoms according to his own nature and not according to the image set by the parent or teacher.

3. To work from the near to the far - Education begins from understanding the immediate realms and gradually moving to ideas and images alien to the physical surroundings.
