Synthesis of Yoga

The Synthesis of Yoga is Sri Aurobindo’s principal work on his method of Integral Yoga; in this book he presents an entirely thorough explanation of it. In this reading of Part 4 The Yoga of Self-Perfection, you may listen to the first half of Chapter 20 The Intuitive Mind, pages 798-805.

The nature of Supermind is of the Infinite, the universal Spirit and Self in all, in all things. In man it must be a gradual, imperfect creation; to his mind an exceptional, supernormal will and knowledge. To uncover it is complex; as an evolutionary being the mind is constitutioned with an inferior kind of knowledge, presenting an obstacle to a new formation greater than its own nature. A conversion of his whole mind, reason, intelligence as well as a reversal of all their methods, is what is called for. Already at work in the mind is the faculty of light, inspiration and force: the intuition. … The supermind alone can determine the method of its own workings. … Leave the whole movement to a greater Guidance. …. An immense progress:to become able at will to command silence and tranquility of the mind, allowing thought, will and feeling only when it the Will, through the Shakti. … Natural to the Bhakti will be to reject intellect, its action, listening for the voice, obeying only the idea, will and power of the Lord within: the Divine Purusha, the Divine Self.
