In an essay written in 1918 and entitled The Renaissance in India, Sri Aurobindo presents us with a masterly view of India’s culture through the ages — her essential spirit and her characteristic soul, her unique genius and powers which gave her her remarkably long periods of greatness and an unusually prolific creativity — that which allowed her to survive for so long when other ancient civilisations faded away. He explains the basis of her strength — that which enabled her to resist so many attempts at crushing her culture.
