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 … ”
