Synthesis of Yoga

The Synthesis of Yog is the principal writing of Sri Aurobindo explaining in minute detail the method of his Integral Yoga. In this work, he also examines the methods of traditional yogas.

This recording is of the first half of Chapter 17: The Action of the Divine Shakti, of Part 4 The Yoga of Self-Perfection. Pages 762-765.

The nature of the divine Shakti: it is the timeless power of the Divine, manifesting itself in time as a universal force creating, constituting, maintaining and directing all the movements and workings of the universe. The seeker must get and keep the idea of one spirit or self in all, behind all workings; it is the Divine in all, the one Godhead in all … this will diminish the insistence of the ego. It is the first necessity of the Yoga to lose the ego of the doer (the sense of one’s own power of action) and merge it in the senses and vision of the universal Shakti originating, shaping to its ends the action of our selves, in fact of all the persons and forces of the world. Attaining quiet and equanimity decreases all difficulties as we come to comprehend the necessity of a genuine and complete surrender of ourselves to the divine Master.
