Synthesis of Yoga

This reading concludes Chapter 5, Renunciation, pages 331-334. In these pages Sri Aurobindo again emphasizes what we read in the teachings of the Gita, how subtle and difficult is freedom from egoism, the very thing which is demanded of us. He points out that renunciation (or self-denial) is an instrument; there is period for its use which passes.

“We must be prepared to leave behind on the path not only that which we stygmatise as evil but that which seems to us to be good, yet is not the one good ….. things which ….. seemed beneficial ….. once their work is done ….. become obstacles ….. even hostile forces when we are called to advance beyond them.”

” …..march on to the wider kingdoms of God beyond …..everything is kept ….. restored for us ….. with a wonderful change and transfiguration into ….. the All-Light of Him ….. the mystery and the miracle that ceases not through the ages.”
