Synthesis of Yoga

Sri Aurobindo's Synthesis of Yoga: the continuation of Chapter XIII The Difficulties of the Mental Being of Part Two: the Yoga of Integral Knowledge, on page 395.

Sri Aurobindo reiterates the complexity, the difficulties of the mind ... even though we may attain a state of consciousness in which we have managed to withdraw from ordinary interests, inward mental activities, (a state which few can attain) upon our return to the mental consciousness, we are back again in the lower being.

It is to call down the divine into oneself in order that its mentality shall be changed, divinised, spiritualized to that which it knows and relates to its own consciousness ... this may be done by by the mind's power of reflecting (as the mind is really a reflector) and none of its activities originate in themselves. The divine may then be reflected in a clear, passive mind ...

This chapter is completed on page 399.

Mental Disorders on Spirtual Path


On 23rd of Decmeber the new , graceful Sangam Hall at Savitri Bhavan was "christened" by Dr. Alok Pandey's talk on Facing Mental Challenges on the Spiritual Path in the light of the Mother and Sri Aurobindo's teachings. Dr. Panedy from Sri Aurobindo Ashram talked about challenges, cycles one face on the spiritual path of a seeker, whereby the energies surrounding Auroville are tremendous. He mentioned cosmic forces which test a seeker - universal nature, adverse forces and spiritual (divine) forces. Solution to different problems and difficulties which come on one's path can be find only in psychic.

Art for Land – Flow of Donations

In the care for land Unity Pavilion joined the action Acres for Auroville (A4A) with unique way - Art for Land, by which they connect all good wishers also with artist, thus creating a flow of donation. Here the generosity is a gesture with noble action, as Devasmita mentions in between. Team of Acres for Auroville(A4A), and Green Acres with Mandakini, Aryadeep and Sigrid in care to secure the master plan, as envisioned by The Mother, try to raise  funds to buy missing plots. This year Art for Land will be inaugurated on 1st of January 2018 at 4pm at Unity Pavilion, with accompanied music. Exhibition   will be on display until 15th  of February . This year there wont be an auction but just a display of already collected over 300 art works from painting, photography, sculptures and pottery. With this action the Unity Pavilion joins the events celebrating not only the 50th anniversary of Auroville, but also plea for  Gratitude which we all feel for the land,  that gives space to uniqueness of Auroville. As Jaya says,  they still hope that to celebrate the 50th, each account in Auroville, either be personal or other,  would join the celebrations by monthly recurring small or big amount toward purchasing missing plots of the land for the Master Plan.     @Auroville50

Synthesis of Yoga

The Synthesis of Yoga part Two, Chapter XIII The Difficulties of the Mental Being on page 391 begins with, once again, the first object of this Yoga. Sri Aurobindo repeatedly returns us to the reason of why we engage in what seems to be a long and arduous work.

"Man is a mental and not yet a supramental being; it is by the mind therefore that he has to aim at knowledge and realize his being ... Realised mental being and realised spiritual being are really two different planes ... one superior and divine, the other inferior and human. ... the divine is infinite consciousness transcending and embracing all that it manifests within it ... the divine founds itself upon unity and is master of the transcendences and totalities of things ... "

Savitri, B. IV, C. II, Part 2

To See Her Was A Summons To Adore...A Glory Inapproachably Divine.

Savitri is a lovely being - a friend, yet too great wholly to know. To be near her drew a high communion's force. Through the story of how people relate to Savitri, Sri Aurobindo tells us stories about how people related to Mother with their imperfect human development in the Ashram. Savitri is so high that no equal heart comes near to join her longing heart; no comrade soul made like her - made one as God and Nature are one. Whoever is too great must lonely live. Thus was it awhile with Savitri...her spirit dwelt apart until her hour of fate. This program includes a beautiful story of seeing Mother for the first time.

Savitri, B. IV, C. III

Savitri Is Sent To Search The Deep World For Her Mate

The mighty yearning that asks for a perfect life for earth and men again raised it flame. King Aswapathy hears a Voice from hidden skies, calling mankind to its greater destiny. The Voice speaks of man's failure to change. Then, Savitri comes like a shining answer from the gods. There comes the gift of a revealing hour, and with his inner sight, the king sees the great and unknown spirit born as his daughter. He speaks to her in sentences from unseen heights. The king tells Savitri that somewhere on earth waits her mate, the second self for which her nature asks. He tells her to depart where love and destiny call her charm, and his word is the seed of all things to be. The next morning the palace wakes to its own emptiness. Savitri has gone to search the spacious world for the love of her life.

Mother's Q And A – 26/9/56

Personal Contact With Mother - Receiving The Force

In the Ashram, the value of Mother's physical presence was for helping the physical consciousness and the physical body to be an integral part of the inner progress. Today the force carries the physical change. We have to begin inside, and only when we are ready within can our outer parts participate in the process of integral transformation and change. Mother pointed out that if there was no opening to the force it did no good to be in her physical presence. The important point was, and still is, to establish the inner contact. In Mother the Consciousness acted for purification, and it still does. Automatically it is like a ray of light that brings light where there was no light before, and it illumines all the bad parts of the being so they are seen as they truly are. We should not hide them. We should see them as something we want to get rid of permanently, and offer them for that purpose.
