Elements of understanding of Sri Aurobindo’s poem ILION


After Savitri, Illion is Sri Aurobindo's most important poetic work with nearly 5000 verses. Until today, this poem was practically ignored since Sri Aurobindo never gave the keys necessary to its comprehensiveness or any indications concerning its symbolic content.

Illion nevertheless addresses an essential question in the great spiritual turning point that is being experienced by humanity today, namely, what can be conserved of the structures and realizations supporting the most advanced efforts of the ancient yoga, represented by the city of Illion (later called Troy), and what the bases of the new yoga will consist of.

This book offers a number of insights into the meaning of this poem based on a thorough study of the symbolic meaning of Greek mythology carried out by the author over more than twenty years and published under the name Greek Mythology, the Yoga of the West.
