Pride and Prejudice

Jane Austen's novel Pride and Prejudice is a story of love, marriage, society, evolution, aspiration, transformation and accomplishment set in rural England 200 years ago. It traces events in the life of the Bennet family over a period of a year. The articles listed below explain principles of Life and The Life Divine as illustrated by the characters and events in the novel.

Karmayogi is in the process of writing a detailed line by line commentary explaining and illustrating the principles of Sri Aurobindo’s The Life Divine and accomplishment in life from the characters and events in Pride and Prejudice. The commentary is being hosted in English and Tamil along with a Tamil translation of the novel. A small group of devotees has been participating in daily internet conference calls with Garry Jacobs of The Mother's Service Society to read and discuss Karmayogi's commentary. These calls are recorded and hosted on this site so the discussion can be made available to more people. These recordings can be downloaded here.
