Physical education, as it is understood today, is comparatively a very recent development. Yet its potentialities and the impact upon the total education of the modern ma n are being realised more and more and Physical Education is assuming an ever increasing importance in the current educational programmes.
But physical education is only a means to an end. The end product, that is the quality of education, depends primarily on the principles which form its basis. With the passage of time and the development of the human consciousness by the unfolding of newer and newer truths in the terrestrial life, these principles also undergo enlarging mutations and those working in this field must keep themselves abreast with these progressive trends so that the quality of the results may be constantly improved.
Each age brings its own Truth which must be implemented in every sphere of life for its assured growth and fulfilment. Today, it is the Ideal and the Message of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother that are shaping the new world. Every individual with an open mind and forward look sees in this teaching the only way to shape the present and build the future in a meaningful direction.
Sri Aurobindo and the Mother have, in their exhaustive writings, touched upon all the main problems of man. They have thrown their beacon lights in the fields of education also where Physical Education gets its due share. This volume has been compiled from their various writings, message given on various occasions and answers to earnest queries.
It is not that all lthat Sri Aurobindo and the Mother have said on the subject has been included in this book. Whatever lies still to be gathered and the new message that may be found will be added in the next edition.
The topics have been arranged subjectwise, as far as possible, and references are added at the end to facilitate the study of the original and complete writings.
It is hoped that those working in the field of physical Education would find in this volume a ready source of inspiration for their work and fresh experiments in its course.
