Synthesis of Yoga

Sri Aurobindo’s Synthesis of Yoga is a most thorough, detailed explanation of his method of Integral Yoga; but also offers an examination of traditional yogas.

This recording is of the second half of Chapter 5 Instruments of the Spirit, found in Part 4 Yoga of Self-Perfection, near bottom of page 647.

“All action of the mind arises out of a basic consciousness (chitta) … when struck by the world’s impacts it throws up certain habitual activities, determined by our evolution. One, the heart … our emotions are waves of reaction from the basic consciousness … largely regulated by habit … they are not imperative, not really a binding law … we are not obliged to give responses of grief, nor to anger nor hatred, dislike, nor even of liking or love. … All are only habits of our mentality; they can be changed by the conscious will of the spirit; we may even arise entirely out of all subjection to grief, anger, hatred, the duality of liking and disliking … the true emotive soul, the real psyche within, is not a desire-soul but a soul of pure love and delight ,,, but can only emerge when the of the life of desire, that deformation, is removed and no longer the characteristic action of our being … a necessary part of our purification, liberation and perfection.
