A sailor and a Breton, though born in Paris in 1923. A member of the French Resistance, Satprem was arrested by the Gestapo when he was twenty and spent a year and a half in concentration camps. Devastated, he journeyed first to Upper Egypt, then to India, where he served in the French colonial government of Pondicherry. There he discovered Sri Aurobindo and Mother. Their Message — “Man is a transitional being” — struck a deep chord.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SATPREM

 

He resigned his post and left for Guiana, where he spent an adventurous year in the middle of Amazonian jungle, then wandered on to Brazil, Africa....
In 1953, at thirty, Satprem returned to India for good to be near Her who was in search of the secret of the passage to the “next species” — Mother, whose confidant and witness he became for some twenty years. His first essay was dedicated to Sri Aurobindo or the Adventure of Consciousness and followed a few years later by On the Way to Supermanhood.
At the age of fifty, he edited and published the fabulous logbook of Mother's exploration, Mother's Agenda, in 13 volumes, while at the same time writing a trilogy — The Divine Materialism, The New Species, The Mutation of Death — followed by an essay, The Mind of the Cells
.

In 1982, with his companion Sujata, Satprem withdrew completely to embark on the last adventure: the search for the “great passage” in the evolution beyond Man. In 1989, after seven years spent “digging in the body,” he wrote a brief autobiographical account, The Revolt of the Earth, in which he took stock of Man's present situation. (it continues)
