At his passing Georges Van Vrekhem left a number of unpublished essays behind. Some of them were based on his talks in Auroville at the end of 2011, when he embarked on a second series of lectures on a wide variety of topics related to Sri Aurobindo and the Mother. However, first Cyclone Thane and later his deteriorating health disrupted these lectures.

This book, which contains his unpublished essays as well as some of his articles and interviews that have been published in the magazines Auroville TodayMother India, and The Advent, and in the book The Journeying Years, is published to honor Georges in recognition of his immense work in helping to understand the life and work of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother. $9
