Synthesis of Yoga

Chapter 4 Concentration continued to its completion; pages 321 – 325, of Part II, The Yoga of Integral Knowledge.

Sri Aurobindo explains: ” ….. concentraiton proceeds by the Idea, using thought, form and name as keys which yield up to the concentrating mind the Truth that lies concealed behind all thought, form and name ….. “

” ….. the mind is a thing that dwells in diffusion ….. it can only concentrate on one thing at a time and when not concentrated runs from one thing to another very much at random.”

” ….. The first step in concentration must be always to accustom the discursive mind to a settled unwavering pursuit ….. on a single subject ….. undistracted by all lures and alien calls on its attention ….. common enough in our ordinary life ….. difficult when we have to do it inwardly ….. this inward concentration is what the seeker of knowledge must effect.”
