Bulletin of Sri Aurobindo International Centre of Education
The Bulletin of Physical Education, later re-named Bulletin of Sri Aurobindo International Centre of Education, is periodical published by the Ashram school. Issues have been published regularly since February 1949.
(Nirodbaran:) “When the Bulletin of Sri Aurobindo International Centre of Education was launched, the Mother wanted to initiate it with an article from Sri Aurobindo. Some days passed. She asked him if he had started writing it. He answered with a smile, “No.” After a few days, she reminded him of the urgency. Then he began dictating on the value of sports and physical gymnastics. Quite a series commenced and the most memorable of the lot was the article “The Divine Body”. It was a long piece and took more than a week, since we daily had just about an hour to spare. As he was dictating, I marvelled at so much knowledge of Ancient Greece and Ancient India stored up somewhere in his superconscious memory and now pouring down at his command in a smooth flow. No notes were consulted, no books were needed, yet after a lapse of so many decades everything was fresh, spontaneous and recalled in vivid detail! This article, like his others, was then read out to the Mother in front of Sri Aurobindo. She exclaimed, “Magnificent!” Sri Aurobindo simply smiled. All of them have appeared in book-form called The Supramental Manifestation upon Earth.”
