Synthesis of Yoga

Resuming on page 361 the second half of Chapter IX The Release of the Ego in Part Two The Yoga of Integral Knowledge.

Sri Aurobindo stresses that nothing half-way, attractive, exclusive or high-pinnacled is to be sought by the seeker of knowledge of an integral Yoga. He must continuously soar to the utmost height, for it is the absolute union of the soul with the Transcendent that is the goal.

In the path of Knowledge an uncompromising abolition of the ego-sense, at its very source, must be done; one may attempt this abolition by a constant fixing of one’s thought on the One and Infinite in itself, or everywhere. If done persistently, in the end this changes one’s mental outlook not only on oneself, but on the whole world. Result: a kind of mental realization … which deepens eventually into spiritual experience … realization in the substance of our being.

Synthesis of Yoga

This reading is from Part TwoThe Knowledge of Integral Knowledge, completing Chapter 1, The Object of Knowledge, pages 293 – 299.

Sri Aurobindo reminds the reader again: everywhere and in all conditions is One, however hidden to us, the Supreme is here in the world. The object of a Yoga of spiritual knowledge is this eternal Oneness, eternal Reality, this Self, this Brahman, this Transcendent, dwelling over all and, in all . . . manifest (yet concealed) in the individual, manifest (yet disguised) in the universe. This is the integral knowledge.

Synthesis of Yoga

Continuing to its conclusion Chapter 12, The Yoga of Divine Works on page 271, Sri Aurobindo tells us that the one who pursues his divine work in the universe is not governed by the judgments of men or laws laid down by the ignorant; he obeys and inner voice; he is moved by an unseen Power . . . his real life is within; he lives, moves and acts in God . . .

Furthermore that the divine Nature, free and perfect must be manifested in the individual in order that it may manifest in the world . . . the truest reason why we must seek liberation is not to be delivered individually from the sorrow of the world, though that deliverance will be given to us, but that we may be one with the Divine . . . this is the divine Will in us, the highest truth of our self in Nature, the always intended goal of a progressive manifestation in the universe.

Synthesis of Yoga; Sri Aurobi nd

Continuing with Part One the Yoga of Divine Works, Chapter 11 The Master of the Work on page 258, through to the end of the chapter on page 263.

Sri Aurobindo reiterates that this Integral Yoga is not only for an individual’s salvation, but for the whole of humanity. And as we advance through the various stages of the long and difficult journey, the Master of works does not wait till the end to meet the seeker on the path. He puts his half-shown Hand upon him, upon his life and his actions.
” . . . Already he was there in the world as the Originator and Receiver of works behind the dense veils of the Inconscient, disguised in force of Life, visible to the Mind through dynamic godheads and figures. It may well be in these disguises that he first meets the soul destined to the way of integral Yoga. . . ”

” . . . the Supramental Transcendence is not a thing absolutely apart and unconnected with our present existence. It is a greater Light our of which all this has come for the adventure of the Soul lapsing into the Inconscience and emerging out of it, and, while that adventure proceeds, it waits superconscient above our minds till it can become conscious in us.

Synthesis of Yoga

The Synthesis of Yoga of Sri Aurobindo, continuing in Part One The Yoga of Divine Works, Chapter 11 The Master of the Work, on page 254.

” . . . the Divine conforms itself to our individualised personality and accepts a personal relation with us . . . as our Master, Friend, Lover, Teacher, our Father and our Mother, our Playmate . . . who has disguised himself throughout as friend and enemy, helper and opponent . . . has led our steps towards our perfection and our release.”

” . . . It is our personal evolution that is his preoccupation, a personal relation with that is our joy and fulfilment, the building of our nature into his divine image that is our self-finding and perfection. The outside world seems to exist only as a field for this growth and a provider of materials or of helping and opposing forces, for its successive stages. Our works done in that world are his works, . . . “

The next reading will begin mid-page 258 until the end of this chapter on page 263

Consciousness is not only power of awareness of self and things, it is or has also adynamic and creative energy .It can determine its own reactions or abstain from reactions; it can not only answer to forces, but create or put out from itself forces. Consciousness is Chit but also Chit Shakti.
