Synthesis of Yoga

Today we begin with Chapter III The Purified Understanding on page 308 from Part Two
The Yoga of Integral Knowledge.

In this chapter Sri Aurobindo clearly puts it that ” ….. a supramental realisation, a re-seeing, a remoulding of our whole existence in the light of the Divine, free from subjection to the appearances of things ….. ” is that to which we aspire.

Understanding and its purification is best expressed through the Sanskrit philosophical term buddhi; excluded from that would be any action of the sense min with its varied and sundry perceptions without distinction of right or wrong, true or illusory . . . the constant leaping of habitual thought (parading as understanding in the average unthinking man). All this is one remove from the animal mind; a half-animal reason subservient to habit, desire, the senses and of no avail in the search for spiritual, philosophical and scientific knowledge.

The next reading will commence on page 312 mid-page continuing through page 316, end of chapter

Garba Dance

Garba is a form of dance which originated in the state of Gujarat in India. The name is derived from the Sanskrit term Garbha (“womb”) and Deep (“a small earthenware lamp”). Many traditional garbas are performed around a centrally lit lamp or a picture or statue of the Goddess Shakti. The circular and spiral figures of garba have similarities to other spiritual dances, such as those of Sufi culture (garba being an earlier tradition). Traditionally, it is performed during the nine-day Hindu festival Navaratri Nava = 9,nights). Either the lamp (the Garba Deep) or an image of the Goddess, Durga (also called Amba) is placed in the middle of concentric rings as an object of veneration.
