M.P. Pandit (1918-1993)

M.P. Pandit became a member of the Sri Aurobindo Ashram in 1939 upon graduation from college. He seized the priceless opportunity to live with his great teacher, Sri T.V. Kapali Sastriar, and learned several paths of sadhana from him, drenched himself in an atmosphere of intense tapasya, and became a scholar of Sanskrit and philosophy. Sri Pandit was the Mother’s trusted Secretary from his early years there. Of him she once observed that he possessed the only organized mind in the Ashram. M.P. Pandit

Sleeping hardly four hours a night, pouring himself constantly and attentively into detailed service to the Mother, M.P. Pandit was a giant of karma yoga. But his service was motived by his deep love for the Mother. Love in him was key and harmonized both work and knowledge.

And yet he is now best known for his career as an author. A lifetime of study yields competence in a single field. But writing in legions of subjects, M.P. Pandit authored scores of books which bear the mark of authenticity. His mastery was founded not just upon decades of scholarship, but as truly upon the strength of his practice and penetrating insight. He wrote convincingly because he lived the ideals he cherished. As a speaker, he was peerless.

Sri Pandit’s published work is enormous, filling 150 volumes. Distinguishing his prose is an affirmative vision that uncovers the Divine Reality manifest throughout the Universe. At the basis of this outlook is the integrating philosophy pioneered by Sri Aurobindo and the Mother. Uniquely merging the essential truths of India, — still vibrant in the Veda, Vedanta, and Tantra, — with the forward call of the Integral Yoga, Sri Pandit’s writings fulfill ancient ideals, but establish them in a changed world crowned with a radically new consciousness.

A resident of the Sri Aurobindo Ashram in Pondicherry for more than fifty years, Sri Pandit was closely allied with the developing new perspectives in the worlds of polity, science, and psychology. He was regarded around the globe as a consummate example in writing and deed of the evolutionary principle driving humanity forward. An All India figure, his visits to Europe and especially America left profound impressions and imparted inspirations that continue to uplift seekers.
