A small selection of excerpts from letters of Sri Aurobindo guiding us on the three central processes of Integral Yoga – Aspiration, Rejection and Surrender.
These passages give a glimpse of the fundamental difference between Integral Yoga and other paths of yoga. We learn about the evolutionary aim in Integral Yoga, which Sri Aurobindo summarises as – to become divine in the nature of the world. The Mother tells us that if one cannot change the nature it is not worth the trouble of doing yoga, for yoga is done precisely in order to change the nature.
Every month we will feature a small prayer or meditation, with an aspiration that this will be the Light illuminating and purifying all our movements every day of the month. May our conscious effort to refer all the movements in all parts of our being to this dhyāna-mantra be our offering into the yajñá for a true rebirth of the Indian soul, a rebirth in which not only the Mind but the entire Life begins to experience the touch of the Spirit.
