Overman Foundation has completed a month of its existence yesterday. From the day of its inception on 29th March 2010 till the present date, we are working to build the infrastructure which would enable us to fulfill the objectives of our organization. And at every step, we have felt the Grace of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother and experienced their Force helping and guiding us. We’ve miles to go but we are confident that we would be successful in our endeavours because of the constant presence of the helping Hands of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother who are the architects of our material and spiritual destiny.
We are aiming to create an online research facility at Overman Foundation within the next four months. The work for the said project has already begun. A catalogue containing the details of the research materials available at Overman Foundation would be provided to the interested researchers upon request and according to their requirements, the materials (documents or photographs) would be sent to them either through e-mail or by courier. In return we shall charge a nominal sum of money as fees. By August 2010, we hope to launch the facility of online research and if everything progresses well and as per schedule, we would be able to launch it on 15th August 2010.
With warm regards,

Overman Foundation aims to recognize the contribution of the scholars, writers and workers of the Aurobindonian movement in various fields. For this purpose, the ‘Auro-Ratna’ award has been created to felicitate the ‘true children’ of the Divine who, as defined by the Mother, are those few who have consecrated all of themselves and all they have—soul, life, work and wealth.
Today, on behalf on Overman Foundation, I take this opportunity to announce the names of the first recipients of the ‘Auro-Ratna’ award. For the year 2009-2010, the ‘Auro-Ratna’ award will be given to K.D. Sethna (Amal Kiran), Prof. Arabinda Basu and the late Jugal Kishore Mukherjee for their invaluable and outstanding contribution in the field of literature, research and philosophy. It will be our privilege to hand over the ‘Auro-Ratna’ award, named after Sri Aurobindo, to three of his most faithful followers.

“The coming of a spiritual age must be preceded by the appearance of an increasing number of individuals who are no longer satisfied with the normal intellectual, vital and physical existence of man, but perceive that a greater revolution is the real goal of humanity and attempt to effect it in themselves, to lead others to it and to make it the recognized goal of the race. In proportion as they succeed and to the degree to which they carry this evolution, the yet unrealized potentiality which they represent will become an actual possibility of the future.” (Sri Aurobindo, The Human Cycle, p. 261)
