Harpagon finds its birth, way back in 1937. The Mother had intended it to be an engineering workshop. Once known for its remarkable feats, Harpagon now has transformed itself into another role altogether, to flow in the swift waters of time.
Books and photos of Sri Aurobindo & The Mother are the only tangible mediums that tenderly guide, inspire & help devotees throughout their lives; photos give almost an instantaneous, direct and overwhelming presence and also soulful moments of bliss. Books on the other hand mediate through the use of the mind.
The photos of Sri Aurobindo and The Mother are on a permanent display in a big gallery offering a choice selection to the devotees and visitors.
Souvenirs with quotations from Sri Aurobindo and The Mother present an opportunity which is at once a meditation for the now and here.
The range is further beautified with the help of Hand Block Printed Apparels such as Saris, Kurtis, T shirts, Home Furnishings such as Bed Sheets, Pillow Covers, Towels, Napkins etc exclusively designed and hand printed at Harpagon.
These items are the heart and soul of our endeavour.
