Synthesis of Yoga

The following chapter was left unfinished. It was not included in the edition of The Synthesis of Yoga, Part 1, that was published in Sri Arobindo’s lifetime. This reading is Chapter 13, page 279:The Supermind and the Yoga of Works.

The Integral Yoga of Sri Aurobindo has as its total aim the conversion of the entire being into a higher spiritual consciousness and, a larger divine existence; a union with the Divine Reality of our being is the one essential object of the Yoga. Union with the Divine must be the master motive . . .

Sri Aurobindo succinctly points out we must, in order to evenutally reach the state of Supermind, entertain a sublimated commonsense, an unfailing power of self-criticism , right discrimination, eschewing any tendency towards irrationality, impatiece . . .

” . . . the supramental change is difficult, distant, an ultimate stage, it must be regarded as the end of a far-off vista; it cannot be and must not be turned into a first aim . . . ”
