We feature a few letters of Sri Aurobindo which remind us that only the Mother’s Grace can pull us out of any darkness or despondency we may fall into as we walk the sunlit path of Integral Yoga.
This writing from Karmayogin speaks perfectly of the deeper nationalism which is compatible with the eternal Indian spirit. What was true for the Indian freedom movement remains valid today, in the sense that similar level of tapasya, pursuit of wisdom and invocation of shakti is demanded for building a future India that is true to her inner genius.
Sri Aurobindo emphasizes that the perfection sought in the integral Yoga is not only to be one with the Shakti in her highest spiritual power and in her universal action, but to realise and possess her fullness in our individual being and nature.
Given that concentration is such an important aspect of all spiritual pursuit and life, in various works of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother we find a great body of deep insights and detailed explanations on this. We present here a small selection of practical advice and guidance given by Sri Aurobindo.
We highlight selected words of Sri Aurobindo on who is a Rishi and how the essence of Indian civilisation was shaped by the great Rishis.
In these letters Sri Aurobindo explains the right attitude a sadhak of Integral Yoga must cultivate toward food. While the letters were written in response to queries from the disciples living in the Ashram, the advice is equally applicable to the aspirants and devotees living outside.
What is the right place and significance of reading spiritual literature in the path of sadhana? We get valuable insights from Sri Aurobindo and the Mother.
